Report: Twins closing in on a deal with Lance Lynn

Fresh off a surprising playoff appearance last season, the small-market Minnesota Twins have been surprisingly active this winter.

This looks like it’s going to continue with the signing of veteran starting pitcher Lance Lynn, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Lynn, 30, pitched to an 11-8 record with a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP for the St. Louis Cardinals last season. The former All-Star has put up double-digit wins in each of the past five seasons that he’s played. He missed the entire 2016 season to injury, but came back as strong as ever last season.

This move comes on the heels of Minnesota adding pitchers Michael Pineda, Jake Odorizzi and Anibal Sanchez as well as slugger Logan Morrison earlier in the offseason.
