Sanchez's departure will open up a roster spot for righty Lance Lynn, who the Twins signed on Saturday to a one-year, $12M contract, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale. Like Mike Moustakas, Carlos Gonzalez and Jonathan Lucroy in recent days, the starting pitcher ultimately signed a deal. In his first season back from Tommy John surgery in 2017, he recorded a 3.43 ERA, meaning that he's kept his ERA under 4 in all six of his major-league seasons. Lynn has made at least 29 starts and pitched over 175 innings in five different seasons with the Cardinals since 2012.
