– Lance Lynn joined the Twins on Tuesday, rolling through a morning news conference before his scheduled start against the Orioles.

Lynn signed a one-year, $12 million contract after passing his physical on Monday, coming to the Twins on a short-term prove-it deal with a contending team rather that getting a longer term elsewhere.

“I don’t think I’m taking a risk at all,” the 30-year-old righthander said. “I wanted to go to a place that had a chance to win, no matter what. It seemed like a perfect fit.”
