Honors:

  • 2008 Brooks Wallace Pre-season Watch List
  • 2008 NCBWA Pre-season All-American

Strengths:
In high school, Lynn was the best player on the nationally ranked Brownsburg High. In college, he has also been effective. Lynn put together a dominant year in 2007, striking out more than a batter per inning. His 146 punch outs was second only to San Diego lefty Brian Matusz among returning college pitchers. Lynn works off a 93 mph fastball, a plus curve and solid changeup with which he can throw strikes.

Weaknesses:
Lynn is not very projectable due to his soft body. He will never be more than a #3 starter.

The Future:
#20-30 overall.
