Later today, FutureSox will have a post from Jeff Cohen summing up the first quarter of the Charlotte Knights’ season on the pitching side. There isn’t a whole lot to report, but for the next few weeks, he and others watching the Knights should have a little more fun.
Lance Lynn, who has been recovering from right knee tendon surgery, should be starting his rehab stint this weekend with the White Sox’s Triple-A affiliate, and he said he’d need at least three starts.
“It’s right on pace,” Lynn said Wednesday of the rehab process. “When you look at how everything goes, it’s all about how you can recover. Some days you are going to feel worse than others. It’s how you get through it and how you respond. The more I get on the mound, the better I feel, the more comfortable I feel.
“Now it’s on to games this weekend it looks like. That’s the next step of intensity. I’m sure I’ll have some soreness and things of that nature you’ve got to get through. And that’s what the rehab process is all about so you feel comfortable when it’s time to be back here.”
