Monday was yet another crazy day across the baseball world, specifically in the trade department. With the non-waiver deadline today at 4 pm Eastern, teams are putting the finishing touches on their rosters as they prepare for the pennant race in August and September.
Monday’s deals mainly focused on a variety of bullpen arms, but one trade that could use some breaking down is the Yankees’ acquisition of right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn.
Lynn is 31-years-old and a free agent at the season’s end. He’s made 20 starts for the Minnesota Twins this year, who signed him to a one-year, $12 million deal this past offseason. He’s posted underwhelming results thus year, putting up a 5.10 ERA with 100 strikeouts to 62 walks over 102 1⁄3 innings pitched. FIP likes him a bit better, but DRA doesn’t, with a 7.08 mark.
