Lance Lynn in; Sanchez out

Lynn signed a one-year deal with the Twins on Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

A couple of days before the Twins signed Lance Lynn, the online betting site Bovada offered a few prop bets on which teams the top remaining free-agent pitchers were most likely to wind up signing with this season.

Lynn missed the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but bounced back in 2017 to go 11-8 with a 3.43 ERA with the St. Louis Cardinals and increase his earnings on the open market. He had elbow ligament replacement surgery shortly after that.

Lynn, 30, spent his first six seasons with the Cardinals, going 72-47 with a 3.38 ERA and 919 strikeouts in 183 games (161 starts).
