Twins pitcher Lance Lynn said he has no explanation for his terrible start to the season, especially since he's normally so good — a career 2.85 ERA before this season — in the first month. But he's also still confident he can fix himself.
"I'm going to be all right. I've just got to be me and attack hitters and make pitches. I've got the ability to do that," he said.
Could the problem be with his mechanics? Lynn doesn't think so. His pitching style is so simple — barely any windup, mostly just throwing fastballs — that there's not much to go wrong.
"I've made much worse pitches in my career and got outs with them. That's just the way the game goes sometimes," said Lynn, who has walked five batters in a game only nine times in his career — three of them in 2018. "It's going to happen. I've just got to keep plugging away here, keep getting everything where it needs to be, and the next thing you know, I'll be right where I want to be."
