MLB Opening Day Live Updates: Julio Rodríguez on Mariners roster, Albert Pujols in Cardinals Opening Day lineup

Chicago White Sox right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn will miss Opening Day after suffering a minor tendon tear in his right knee and will undergo surgery on Tuesday, general manager Rick Hahn announced Sunday. Lynn will have four weeks of rehab followed by four weeks of ramping up, Hahn added.

Lynn left spring training on Saturday with a sore right knee. The 34-year-old, who was the presumptive starter for the White Sox on opening day, limped off the field after a pitch in the fourth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

When asked how the team’s starting rotation would be adjusted, Hahn said the White Sox are “still talking through things.”

“(Manager Tony La Russa) will have clarification tomorrow on what order we’ll have the guys in,” Hahn said. “Obviously it’s unfortunate that we have to go the first few weeks without Lance. It’s not something that’s going to be unique to us in terms of the single season we have ahead of us and it’s an opportunity for some of the other guns. that we’re going to carry with the expanded roster to fill some of that void.”

Lynn suffered from inflammation in her right knee last season and was on the injured list for 10 days. He also spent almost a month after the end of the season resting and rehabilitating his knee. Lynn went 11-6 with a 2.69 ERA in 28 starts last season.

News of Lynn’s injury comes after the White Sox recently announced reliever Garrett Hook will require Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2022 season.
