CHICAGO – Prior to today’s game vs. Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox reinstated right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn from the 10-day injured list and optioned outfielder Luis González to the Schaumburg training facility.
Lynn, 33, was placed on the injured list on April 18 (retroactive to April 17) with a strained right trapezius. He is 1-1 with a 0.92 ERA (2 ER/19.2 IP), one shutout, complete game, 27 strikeouts and a 0.92 WHIP in three starts this season, his first with the White Sox.
Lynn has struck out 10-plus batters with zero walks in back-to-back starts, the first pitcher in Sox history to accomplish the feat. He did not allow an earned run over his first 18.2 IP of the season, the longest such streak to begin a season by a White Sox starter since Wilbur Wood went 21.0 IP in 1976 (Elias).
González, 25, was recalled from Schaumburg on Tuesday and appeared in one game with the Sox.
