Scouting report of lefty debut-guy from Eric Longehagen, filed this past Monday as part of his KC prospects review. A fair use chunk. More at link:

“3. Daniel Lynch, SP


Lynch still brings big lefty velo (four- and two-seamers) to the party, as well as a bevy of solid secondary pitches. He throws a spike slider, curveball (really just a release variation on the slider, based on my 2019 high speed footage), and changeup. They’re all mostly average, but the slider flashes plus and I think the changeup has room for growth. There are some questions about his fastball’s playability but I think the velocity and the repertoire depth here make Lynch a very safe mid-rotation sort who’ll likely contribute to the Royals rotation this year.”


Well, I’ll be. Lynch threw 4.2 innings against Cleveland last week. So not debut-guy. Otherwise, as above.

Yoán with the big hit hitting right-handed!


please give Mendick more AB’s, you bum manager.

This is what the experts call: not a bad start.

It was a bad start for Daniel Lynch. It’s unusual to see a player showing how upset he is like he did. Many of us have had a kid upset by a poor sports performance and I felt a bit bad for Lynch. He’ll have better days and it is only a game so I’m still happy the Sox scored all those runs.


I love snowmen.


I missed the first 7 runs. That is all.
