Lance Lynn will start on the mound for the South Siders. Lynn, 35, has already made two starts in Spring Training, and in those games, he has pitched a total of six innings and allowed five earned runs (7.50 ERA). Lynn has made a positive impact on the White Sox in two seasons with the team. In 2021-22, Lynn posted a 3.26 ERA, a 3.54 FIP, and he accumulated 6.1 fWAR in those seasons. Lynn’s continued success in 2023 is vital for the team’s chances of making a playoff push.
Corbin Burnes, 28, who won the 2021 NL Cy Young Award and finished seventh in voting last year, will start for Milwaukee. In 2022, Burnes finished with a 2.94 ERA and a 3.14 FIP, resulting in 4.6 fWAR in 202 innings. In the past two years, Burnes has solidified himself as one of the best pitchers in baseball.
