White Sox broadcaster implies Lance Lynn has weight issues, apologizes for remarks

May 1, 2023

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.
