White Sox reunites Lance Lynn with Tony La Russa

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Lance Lynn is now reunited with Tony La Russa. The two are expected to be together with the Chicago White Sox in 2021.

We say expected because there’s an investigation ongoing regarding La Russa. The new White Sox manager was arrested in Arizona earlier this year.

He was charged for the DUI incident in November. He tried to get out of the arrest due to being a Baseball Hall of Famer.

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.
