Lance Lynn traded to White Sox

Lance Lynn has been traded to the White Sox, a source told’s Mark Feinsand late Monday night. The trade was first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The clubs have not confirmed the deal.

Right-hander Dane Dunning, the White Sox No. 5 prospect, is going back to the Rangers in the trade, according to Passan.

The 33-year-old right-hander and nine-year veteran spent the last two seasons with the Rangers, where he compiled a 22-14 record and 3.57 ERA in 46 starts. He is set to join a White Sox staff alongside Lucas Giolito and Dallas Keuchel.

Still waiting on the second prospect headed out of Chicago, but Rick Hahn promises it won't be Elijah Tatis.

One of those rare trades where both sides are names that could easily be superhero alter egos or porn stars.

Avery Weems is the second prospect headed to Texas.

Chi Sox going for it - smart move

Avery Weems is the second prospect headed to Texas.
Nevermind about #2 in that case.

I can still see it as a porn star, but definitely more a B-list super-villain name.

Good for the ChiSox.

They're looking to be a very interesting team in 2021.

Lance Lynn for Texas went 22-14 in 292 innings with 335 strikeouts and an ERA+ of 140 … his line here reads like one of the better seasons from Gaylord Perry's or Steve Carlton's career.

I hope he continues to thrive, though of course it's possible that the Rangers got the last useful mileage out of him in the service of their overall mediocrity.

Owed just 1/$9.3, easily worth it if he pitches anything like he has recently. Should have been very tradable on that contract but I suppose you can't expect much more than this for a single year.
