Texas Rangers reportedly sign former Yankee RHP Lance Lynn to three-year deal
Right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn on Wednesday agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Texas Rangers, according to multiple reports.
Lynn, who has spent most of his seven-year career as a starter for the St. Louis Cardinals, pitched last season for the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees, combining for a 10-10 record with a 4.77 ERA and 161 strikeouts in 156 2/3 innings.
Lynn went 3-2 with a 4.14 ERA in nine starts for the Yankees, also making two relief appearances. He was dealt by the Twins in a trade deadline deal. Last March, Minnesota signed him to a one-year, $12 million contract.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound pitcher from Indianapolis was with the Cardinals for six seasons, beginning in 2011. In the postseason that year, he pitched in 10 games and got the win in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the Milwaukee Brewers and in Game 3 of the World Series against the Texas Rangers.
Lynn's career record is 82-57, with a 3.57 ERA.
