Chicago White Sox broadcaster Steve Stone took heat over the weekend when he implied that right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn was overweight and it was accounting for his early-season struggles.
Stone made the remarks Tuesday on 670 The Score’s "Parkins and Spiegel" in Chicago.
"He’s had a lot of leg issues and other things," Stone said. "If cardiovascularly it’s bothering him with the pitch clock, maybe a couple salads would help… and I don’t know if he’s having problems with that. But if that is a problem, then maybe if you improve your cardiovascular by losing a couple pounds or doing whatever he’s gonna do to work out.."
Lynn, a two-time All-Star and a member of the 2011 World Series St. Louis Cardinals team, is listed at 6-foot-5, 270 pounds. Before Stone’s comments, Lynn went five innings and allowed four earned runs on five hits in a 5-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
