White Sox Ace Set To Have Surgery

On Sunday afternoon, we reported that Lance Lynn's availability for Opening Day was in doubt. Now, things have escalated, as the Chicago White Sox ace is set to have knee surgery and will be shut down for the next four weeks. 

This is brutal news for the White Sox, as Lynn just had an outstanding 2021 season with them. In 28 starts, he sported an 11-6 record, 2.69 ERA, and 176 strikeouts. With this, he also was named to the All-Star Game for the second time in his career. Thus, he has a major role on Chicago's roster, but now they are unfortunately going to be without him for a good chunk of time. 

With the White Sox looking to go on a serious run this season, losing a pitcher of such significance certainly is horrible for them. All they can hope is that Lynn has a speedy recovery and can get back on the mound soon. However, it certainly is very concerning that he needed to have surgery.

Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see when Lynn is ready to go again for the White Sox. This is just more bad luck for the team, as they already lost Garrett Crochet for the season due to Tommy John surgery.
