We say expected because there’s an investigation ongoing regarding La Russa. The new White Sox manager was arrested in Arizona earlier this year.
If La Russa is able to manage the team for the 2021 season, it’ll be the second time that he’s been able to manage Lynn. They were previously together in 2011 with the St. Louis Cardinals.
The White Sox were considering a trade with the Cincinnati Reds for pitcher Sonny Gray, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. However, once they found that they could acquire Lynn, they pursued that deal instead.
In exchange, the Rangers are receiving pitcher Dane Dunning and pitching prospect Avery Weems.
With this trade, Lynn will be playing for his fifth MLB team. He spent the last two seasons with the Rangers.
Besides playing for the Rangers and the Cardinals, he’s also played for the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees.
He went 6-3 this past season with the Rangers in 13 starts. He also had one complete game.
Lynn had a 3.32 ERA in 84 innings. He also had 34 runs (31 earned runs), including 13 home runs, on 64 hits in 84 innings.
In his career, the Indianapolis, Indiana-born player has a 104-71 record with a 3.57 ERA in 260 games, including 236 starts. He also has four games finished, three complete games, one shutout, and one save.
In addition, Lynn has allowed 608 runs (566 earned runs), including 134 home runs, on 1,312 hits in 1,426 2/3 innings. He also has had 1,415 strikeouts and 529 walks.
