CHICAGO – Rick Hahn is beefing up the White Sox starting rotation.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Rangers right-hander Lance Lynn is headed to the South Side in exchange for Dane Dunning and a prospect.
Lynn finished top six in Cy Young voting the past two seasons in Texas, going 22-14 with a 3.57 ERA. Last year, the 33-year-old journeyman started 13 games, striking out 89 batters and walking 25 in 84 innings of work.
Dunning had a strong showing in his first season at the big league level. He had a five-inning no-hitter in his second game up from the minors and finished the 2020 campaign with a 2-0 record with a 3.97 ERA in seven starts.
