|Lance Lynn strikes out six in loss vs. Padres |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/30/14) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn was hung with a loss Tuesday after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks in six innings and striking out six in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Padres.
Lynn (11-8) needed 117 pitches to get through six innings one start after throwing 118 pitches against the Rays. He's topped 100 pitches in each of his last five games and 110 pitches four times during his five July starts. Lynn owns a 2.98 ERA and 123:52 K:BB ratio in 133 innings. He's slated to face the Brewers Sunday.

(7/23/14) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn took a loss Wednesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings and striking out seven in his team's 3-0 defeat against the Rays.
Lynn (11-7) turned in his fourth straight quality start Wednesday, but he was outdueled by the opposition to end his three-game winning streak. He owns a 3.05 ERA and 117:49 K:BB ratio in 127 innings. Lynn is set to take on the Padres Tuesday.
|Cardinals still weighing their rotation options for Wednesday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/21/14) The Cardinals have yet to reveal their for Wednesday, and although MLB.com suggested that Shelby Miller could make the start, the right-hander made a relief appearance against the Dodgers Sunday night.
Miller issued one walk and allowed two hits in a scoreless inning of work, and is now unlikely to start with only two days of rest.
Lance Lynn remains another option, considering he would be on normal rest. Lynn started the first game after the All-Star break. He is 11-6 with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 20 starts (120 2/3 innings).
|Lance Lynn struggles with control, but turns in strong start |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/18/14) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn turned in a solid start despite his lack of control Friday.
Lynn allowed two runs on four hits over six innings. He walked four and struck out nine during the appearance. Lynn actually pitched into the seventh inning, but failed to record an out. He was removed from the game after giving up back-to-back doubles to open the frame. Lynn threw 107 pitches during the outing.
The win moves Lynn to 11-6 on the season. His next start will come against the Rays.
|Cardinals announce rotation for Dodgers series |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/17/14) The Cardinals have chosen to give All-Star pitcher Adam Wainwright a few extra days to rest following the break, as he will not pitch in the weekend series against the Dodgers, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Lance Lynn will start the second-half opener Friday. He will be followed by Joe Kelly and Carlos Martinez in the three-game series.
|After a breakout 2012 that strangely left a bad taste in the mouths of Fantasy owners, Lance Lynn took a different path to more or less the same numbers in 2013. OK, so he still had a disastrous August followed by an encouraging September, but while his 2012 was a tale of two seasons, his 2013 was a roller-coaster ride. Using a different delivery after shedding 40 pounds in the offseason, he looked like he might not even make it through April with three ugly starts following a disastrous spring, but then he was a Cy Young candidate over the next nine, posting a 2.10 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Of course, then he had a 6.32 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings over his next eight, followed by a 2.28 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 9.4 strikeouts per nine innings over his next four. And then came the disastrous August. On the one hand, Lynn's high points are so high that Fantasy owners want to believe he's capable of more, but on the other hand, he's now had back-to-back seasons with an underwhelming end result. He's a good source of wins and strikeouts if he lasts until the middle-to-late rounds. Just don't expect smooth sailing for him.
