Lynn (10-10) was credited with the win in the Yankees' 8-5 victory Saturday over the Red Sox after pitching a three innings and allowing one run on two hits and one walk. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn was called upon in a tie game in the top of the third inning, and earned the win even though he was nicked for one run on an Andrew Benintendi single in the fourth. The 31-year old has been steadier in his last four appearances, allowing five runs on 15 hits and four walks over 19 innings. Lynn holds a 4.77 ERA and 1.53 WHIP this season with a 161:76 K:BB.

Lynn will no longer start Saturday's game against the Red Sox but is expected to be available out of the bullpen, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Friday's victory assured the Yankees of home field during the Wild Card game against Oakland, so manager Aaron Boone has elected to transition Lynn to a relief role, which is where he is expected to be utilized in October. In his place, Domingo German will start Saturday's game, though he will likely only last a few innings. Look for Lynn to take over following German's exit.

Lynn didn't factor into the decision Saturday, giving up two runs (one earned) in five innings. He allowed seven hits and two walks while striking out four during the Yankees' eventual win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn has worked either five or six innings and given up two or fewer runs in each of his past three starts. He's doing just enough to eat innings at the back of a Yankees rotation with questionable depth. Despite his 4.80 ERA and 4.39 BB/9 on the season, he's struck out 9.20 batters per nine frames in 153.2 this year, which has kept him in the streamer conversation during the waning weeks of fantasy play. He'll face a tougher test than Baltimore in his next scheduled outing Thursday at the surging Rays.

Lynn allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out seven over five innings Sunday against Toronto. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn gave up his lone run in the third inning, and while he'd depart the game with a one-run lead, the Blue Jays would plate a pair in the eighth to take the series finale. Despite a decent performance, he's struggled with his consistency of late, owning a 2-2 record with a 4.49 ERA and 53 strikeouts in 46.1 frames since joining the Yankees from the Twins prior to the trade deadline. Lynn will likely to remain in the starting rotation following Sunday's outing.

Lynn is scheduled to start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn's rotation spot was in question after Sonny Gray was given Tuesday's start, but it appears the Yankees will proceed with a six-man rotation for the time being. The 31-year-old right-hander has been inconsistent since joining the Yankees at the beginning of August, posting a 4.79 ERA and 46:10 K:BB across 41.1 innings (eight appearances, seven starts). If Lynn doesn't perform well Sunday, there's a chance he could get moved to the bullpen for the remainder of the season.

Lynn's standing in the Yankees starting rotation may be up in the air now that Sonny Gray is back in the rotation, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees could go with a six-man rotation, which would allow both Lynn and Gray to remain in the rotation, although a couple off-days over the next two weeks makes it so a six-man rotation isn't absolutely necessary. No further information has been released on this front, though it's worth noting that before Lynn's solid start Saturday, he held a 5.09 ERA since Aug. 1, hardly a good enough number to be a starter on a postseason-bound team.

Lynn surrendered five runs on six hits and three walks while fanning five over four innings as he didn't factor into the decision Friday against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn was roughed up for four runs in the first inning, but New York would rally as he departed with the game tied 5-5. This was easily Lynn's worst outing since joining the Yankees, as he'd allowed just one run across 16.2 innings while racking up 22 punchouts since being dealt from Toronto. Lynn figures to remain in the starting rotation moving forward, and he owns a 4.68 ERA and 1.56 WHIP with 127 strikeouts through 123 frames this season.

Lynn allowed just one run in five innings in a no decision Saturday against the Rangers, giving up five hits and three walks while striking out eight.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn has been very good since being shipped to New York at the deadline. In 16.2 innings, he has an 0.54 ERA and a 22:4 K:BB. It's quite the turnaround after his ERA sat at 5.10 in 102.1 innings for the Twins. The renewed level of performance should keep him in the Yankees' rotation for the foreseeable future. He'll get another chance on the mound Thursday against the Rays.

Lynn (8-8) tossed 7.1 scoreless innings en route to a win over the White Sox on Monday, allowing two hits with one walk and nine strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn allowed a hit and a walk in the first inning, but he retired 19 of the next 20 hitters he faced in this dominant outing. He was in the zone at a 65 percent clip and induced 15 swinging strikes as he tied a season high in punchouts. This performance came on the heels of the veteran's promotion into the rotation, and he's now posted 11.2 scoreless innings since joining his new club. Lynn should remain in the rotation for the foreseeable future and will face the Rangers this weekend in his next scheduled start.

Lynn was promoted to the starting rotation Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn will take over for Sonny Gray, who will transition to a bullpen role moving forward. Lynn made his team debut Wednesday out of the bullpen, as he turned in 4.1 scoreless innings against the Orioles. His next scheduled start figures to come Monday vs. the White Sox.
