Royals' Daniel Lynch: Allows two runs in no-decision
Lynch allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings Sunday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.
Lynch had a pretty successful season debut. He stretched out to 95 pitches in the outing and induced 14 whiffs. He blanked the Nationals through the first three innings but ran into some trouble in the fourth. Lynch allowed three straight hits and a walk but was able to strike out the next two batters to escape with just allowing two runs. The Royals figure to give Lynch a run in the rotation as long as he can stay healthy and he'll line up for a home matchup against the Rockies next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Activated for season debut
The Royals reinstated Lynch (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Nationals.
Lynch will be making his 2023 debut for the big club after he missed just under two months to begin the season while recovering from the left shoulder strain he suffered late in the Cactus League slate. The southpaw steadily built up his pitch count over five minor-league rehab outings and delivered his sharpest effort to date in his most recent start with Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, when he struck out five over six scoreless frames. Lynch tossed 61 pitches in that outing, so he could have a light workload restriction in place as he slots back into the big-league rotation Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Lined up for Sunday's start
Lynch (shoulder) appears to be on track to return from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday's game versus the Nationals, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Kansas City hasn't yet announced a starter for Sunday, but Lynch looks like an excellent candidate to fill the opneing after delivering six scoreless innings in his latest rehab outing this past Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha. The 26-year-old southpaw was poised to be a part of the Opening Day rotation before he suffered a left shoulder strain in late March. Lynch compiled a 5.32 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 177:83 K:BB across his first 199.2 major-league innings between 2021 and 2022.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Making another rehab start
Lynch (shoulder) is making another rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.
Lynch had been mentioned as a candidate to return from the 15-day injured list to start for the Royals on Tuesday against the Tigers, but that's now out the window as he gets another tune-up in the minors. He could make his 2023 big-league debut as soon as Sunday at home versus the Nationals, or perhaps early next week in St. Louis. Kansas City has yet to announce a starter for Tuesday's game, though Mike Mayers could be the top candidate to start or serve as a bulk reliever.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Strikes out eight in rehab outing
Lynch (shoulder) made his fourth rehab start last Wednesday at Triple-A Omaha, covering 3.2 innings and allowing five earned runs on nine hits and zero walks while striking out eight.
Though Lynch didn't have the best results in terms of run prevention, his 8:0 K:BB was a welcome sight, and he was also able to build up to 85 pitches (56 strikes), despite failing to escape the fourth inning. The Royals haven't commented on Lynch's next step, but he looks as though he could be ready to return from the 15-day injured list this week to provide a fresh arm for an injury-laden rotation. Kansas City has only confirmed its starters for Monday (Brady Singer) and Wednesday (Zack Greinke) during its upcoming three-game series versus the Tigers, so Lynch could be a candidate to fill the open spot Tuesday....

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Needs one more rehab start
Lynch (shoulder) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Lynch stretched out to 73 pitches in his latest rehab start, but it appears he'll need one more outing in the minors before joining the big-league roster. Assuming all goes well Wednesday, the southpaw could be an option to make his season debut at some point during next week's home series versus the Tigers.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Sharp in latest rehab start
Lynch (shoulder) covered five innings and gave up two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two Friday in a rehab start for Triple-A Omaha.
In the third start of his rehab assignment and his second in a row at Omaha, Lynch built up to 73 pitches and threw 51 strikes. The Royals haven't outlined Lynch's next step, but based on his pitch count in addition to how he performed Friday, he looks ready to return from the 15-day injured list. He could be an option for the big-league rotation as soon as Wednesday's game in San Diego.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Covers 3.1 innings in rehab start
Lynch (shoulder) made a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Omaha, covering 3.1 scoreless innings while allowing three hits and two walks and striking out three.
After tossing 2.1 innings and 59 pitches in his first rehab outing last Tuesday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Lynch built up to 72 pitches (42 strikes) in his second start while moving up to the Royals' top affiliate. The southpaw looks like he could be ready to return from the 15-day injured list to rejoin the big-league rotation as soon as this Friday in Milwaukee. Ryan Yarbrough is tentatively lined up to start that day, but he exited his start Sunday after being struck in the face by a line drive and could be headed to the IL.... See More ... See Less

Lynch struck out six and allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in 2.1 innings with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Tuesday. He's expected to build up to somewhere between 65 and 75 pitches.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Strikes out six in rehab start
Lynch (shoulder) covered 2.1 innings and struck out six while allowing two earned runs on four hits and one walk in his first rehab start Tuesday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
Lynch has resided on the Royals' 15-day injured list all season with a left shoulder strain, so his appearance Tuesday was his first at any level during the 2023 campaign. Aside from serving up a two-run, two-out home run in the second inning, Lynch was generally sharp while tossing 59 pitches (37 strikes) in the outing. He'll likely need one or two more rehab starts to build his pitch count up to the 75-to-90 range before he's cleared to rejoin the big-league rotation.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Daniel Lynch: Opening rehab assignment Tuesday
Lynch (shoulder) is scheduled to make his first rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Kansas City reports.
Since Lynch has been on the 15-day injured list all season with a strained rotator cuff, he could need around 3-to-4 rehab starts to get stretched back out for a spot in the big-league rotation. If Lynch avoids any setbacks with his shoulder Tuesday, he'll likely move up to Triple-A Omaha next weekend for his second rehab outing.... See More ... See Less

Lynch (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday in Arizona, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Lynch was placed on the 15-day injured list March 30 due to a strained rotator cuff, but he's seemingly trending in the right direction. It's unclear whether this is his first bullpen since suffering the injury, but the next steps in his rehab should become more clear following Tuesday's session.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Exits game early
Lynch was removed from Kansas City's Cactus League game against San Diego on Thursday with an apparent shoulder issue, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Lynch seemed to know something was wrong immediately after throwing a pitch, pointing at his shoulder and motioning for a trainer to come onto the field. The team will look at his shoulder and provide further updates, but early signs are not reassuring for the 26-year-old lefty.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Working on simplifying game
Lynch has made small changes in the offeseason to simplify his mechanics on the mound, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Lynch said he wanted to do something small and simple after feeling a disconnect between his performance in bullpen sessions and in games. Rogers adds the southpaw is looking to differentiate his curveball and his slider. He struggled with the curve -- opposing hitters tagged him for a .471 batting average and a .529 slugging percentage off that pitch, though he threw it only 5.1 percent of the time. Lynch is in the mix for a rotation spot this spring, and how he performs during camp will likely determine if he begins the year in Kansas City or at Triple-A Omaha.... See More ... See Less
