Thoughts on Lance Lynn?

Postby Prooks25 » Fri May 17, 2013 8:55 pm

Lynn has been incredible once again to start the season. Does he continue this? What is this guys potential? He looks so good and I really want to buy in.

Another correction is coming soon, but it wont be as bad as last year. Just cant sustain success throwing the fastball 70% of the time. Gio Gonzalez, Clayton Kershaw, and David Price are the only 3 pitchers from 2010-2012 to post gaudy stats throwing the heat over 70% of the time. No disrespect to Lynn, but he's just not on the same level as those guys.

Agreed. I like Lynn a lot, but now is the time to sell him, not buy. He walks a few too many for my liking and he has an unsustainable HR/FB rate. I like the stuff though & enjoy having any pitcher with plus stuff that gets to throw to Yadi.

Of course he will regress but he really looks like a soft ace right now. 3.50ish ERA, good run support, a lot of K's. These seem like reasonable expectations at this point.

I would rank him about the 20th best pitcher in the league right now.
