The Texas Rangers have agreed to a three-year, $30-million deal with right-handed starter Lance Lynn, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

The 31-year-old is coming off of a one-year pillow contract worth $12 million originally signed with the Minnesota Twins. The Twins traded him to the New York Yankees after falling out of contention. Between the two clubs, Lynn posted a 4.77 ERA and 3.84 FIP over 156 2/3 innings in 2018.

The Rangers have been active this winter while making additions to their pitching staff, agreeing to terms with Jesse Chavez and Edinson Volquez, and also acquiring Drew Smyly from the Chicago Cubs.

From 2012 to 2015, Lynn averaged nearly 190 innings per season, but he required Tommy John surgery and missed 2016. Since then, Lynn has authored a 4.04 ERA and 4.37 FIP over 343 innings.

Lynn was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals with the 39th overall selection in the 2008 MLB Draft and made his major-league debut in 2011. Over 214 career games, Lynn owns a 3.57 ERA and 3.67 FIP.
