In his 6 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Lynn has turned in at least 11 wins in the last 5 while posting a 3.38 ERA in 161 starts.

Assuming the deal is worth less than the qualifying offer, Lynn will not be the only player to leave significant money on the table by rejecting a qualifying offer to test this historically quiet free-agent market.

Starting pitcher Lance Lynn is headed to the Minnesota Twins. His history of durability prior to the surgery and his comeback gave the Twins enough comfort to guarantee Lynn $12 million over one year. Morrison and Lynn were both acquired on affordable, short contracts, apparently after not finding a long-term deal they were willing to accept.

A lot has changed over the course of this offseason, but you'd still be hard pressed to paint this deal as anything other than an incredible bargain for the Twins.When it was announced Ervin Santana would miss the beginning of the year due to an injured finger, it would have been easy for Derek Falvey and the rest of the front office to panic and overpay the first free agent starting pitcher they could get to sign on the dotted line. Lynn allowed almost twice as many home runs a year ago as he did over his previous five major league seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, and his strikeout rate dipped from 8.7 per nine to 7.4.

For his career, Lynn is 72-47 with a 3.38 ERA and 1.29 WHIP.

The Twins have already added Jake Odorizzi to their staff, in a trade with Tampa Bay last month, and they have Jose Berrios and Kyle Gibson returning.
