Twins Agree to Terms With RHP Lance Lynn

Starting pitcher Lance Lynn is headed to the Minnesota Twins. More

With baseball's opening day only a couple weeks away, the Minnesota Twins made their 2018 season even more interesting, signing Lance Lynn, an intriguing, experienced starting pitcher.

Now 30 years old and entering his seventh season (not counting 2016), the Twins will be the first new team Lynn has played for after being drafted by the Cardinals in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft. He should pitch out of the back half of Minnesota's rotation behind Jake Odorizzi, Jose Berrios and Ervin Santana. He gave up six runs on five hits in four innings over two Grapefruit League exhibition game appearances for the Twins.

Man City seek end to unhappy Mondays at Stoke
For Manchester City , a record-setting season in the English Premier League could yet have the ideal ending. Gabriel Jesus has played 31 Premier League games without ever being on the losing side (W26 D5).

In his 6 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Lynn has turned in at least 11 wins in the last 5 while posting a 3.38 ERA in 161 starts. He posted career-worst strikeout (19.7 percent) and walk rates (10.1 percent), though, leading to an uninspiring 4.82 FIP.

Lynn is one of several relatively high-profile free agents signed by the Twins the past few months including reliever Addison Reed and slugging first baseman Logan Morrison.
