Lynn figures to slot directly into the Texas rotation. He had an up-and-down 2018, posting an ERA over five with the Minnesota Twins before being traded to the New York Yankees. He improved in pinstripes, dropping his ERA to 4.14 in 11 appearances. He’s only a year removed from a 2017 season that saw him post a 3.43 ERA with the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Rangers had previously been interested in Charlie Morton as well, but he signed with the Rays on Wednesday, paving the way for Lynn to land in Texas.
