Chicago White Sox pitcher Lance Lynn to be sidelined after MRI shows slight tear in knee

Chicago White Sox starter Lance Lynn will undergo a 30 minute procedure on his right knee on Tuesday after an MRI revealed a slight tear in a tendon, general manager Rick Hahn announced on Sunday.

Lynn, 34, will be off the mound for four weeks, which means he’s likely to miss closer to 6-8 weeks of the regular season.

“It’s part of the game,” Hahn said Sunday afternoon. “I know we have a very deep and talented roster. Like every club, we’re going to face some adversity over the next seven months. The strength of the men in that clubhouse and coach’s room will serve us well.”

Lynn had some minor knee issues last season that the Sox believe are probably the root cause of his current ailment. “A surgical procedure wasn’t called for until this [the tear] happened,” Hahn said.

The strength of the men in that clubhouse and coach’s room will serve us well.

Oh for crying out loud. And if they play 450 ball while Lynn is out, it's a sure sign of their lack of intestinal fortitude. Too bad, I was liking the first part of that quote -- "look, pretty much every team is gonna lose a major player or two for at least a couple of months and you're very lucky when you don't. If it wasn't Lance it would have been somebody else. We've planned for this as best we could."
