Major League Baseball free agency rumors: Twins, Lance Lynn agree to 1-year deal

Lance Lynn: Signs with Twins

Lance Lynn: Signs with Twins

Lynn signed a one-year deal with the Twins on Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. He walked a career-worst 3.8 batters per nine and allowed a career-high 1.3 home runs per nine - the latter, of course, could be explained in part by the baseball.


Jake Arrieta and Alex Cobb are the biggest names remaining on the free-agent pitcher market, and should be the next to close big deals ahead of Opening Day. In his first season back from Tommy John surgery in 2017, he recorded a 3.43 ERA, meaning that he's kept his ERA under 4 in all six of his major-league seasons. Morrison and Lynn were both acquired on low-priced, short contracts, apparently after not finding a long-term deal they were willing to accept. By extending the offer, the Cardinals ensure that they will receive a compensation draft pick when Lynn signs with Minnesota. They will also lose $500,000 in their worldwide free-agent budget. Among them are Sanchez, Phil Hughes, Adalberto Mejia, Tyler Duffey and Stephen Gonsalves - but Lynn now figures to move into the rotation, too.
