2022 Player Outlook
Lynn seems to be one of those "fine wine" type pitchers who just keeps getting better with age as the 34-year-old posted a career-best 2.69 ERA with an impressive 1.07 WHIP and 10.09 K/9 to earn him third place in the AL Cy Young voting. He relies primarily on his low-90s fastball, but mixes in a complementary sinker and cutter which help keep the metric hounds happy to the point where few analysts, if any, are expecting any kind of a major drop-off here in 2022. There may be some minor concern with his rising fly-ball rate given the home ballpark, but not enough to downgrade Lynn on your draft boards. He's never going to be that ace everyone covets, but he can certainly serve as a strong No. 2 or 3 in your fantasy rotation so long as he keeps his ERA in the 3.50 range or better.
