Cardinals activate Lance Lynn from DL; option Tyler Lyons to Triple-A
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) As expected, the Cardinals activated pitcher Lance Lynn from the disabled list Thursday, the team announced. Lynn will start Thursday's game at Miami.
Lynn was on the disabled list after suffering a right forearm strain earlier in June. Lynn is 4-4 with a 3.02 ERA. He last pitched June 7.
To make room for Lynn, the team optioned Tyler Lyons to its Triple-A affiliate. Lyons was 2-0 with a 5.09 ERA in five starts this season.
Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons gets second win of 2015 on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/19/15) Cardinals starter Tyler Lyons was the beneficiary of an offensive outburst on Friday, as St. Louis defeated the Phillies 12-4. Lyons went five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. He walked one and struck out five on the evening.
All three runs Lyons surrendered came on a three-run home run from Ryan Howard in the fifth inning. But the Cardinals were already up 9-0 at that point, so it was of little significance.
Lyons (2-0) has yet to pitch past the fifth inning in any of his five starts this year. But he also hasn't given up more than three earned runs in any start either. He'll take his 5.09 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Thursday in Miami.
Emergency starter Tyler Lyons picks up victory for Cardinals
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/13/15) Fill-in starter Tyler Lyons, moving into the Cardinals' rotation due to the injury to Lance Lynn, was solid Saturday, picking up his first victory of the season in a 3-2 win over the Royals.
The Cardinals didn't ask Lyons to do too much, and the pitcher went just five innings before giving way to a phalanx of relievers. But Lyons gave up just three hits and two runs to earn his first win in four starts this year.
"Tyler was good," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "We've seen him come out and be very good in some of his starts, and usually it was just an inning that kind of blew up on him. He had a couple of opportunities for it to happen [Saturday]."
Lyons allowed a pair of solo homers, but struck out six batters during his 79 pitches.
Cardinals recall Sam Tuivailala, option Tyler Lyons
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) The Cardinals recalled pitcher Sam Tuivailala from Triple-A Memphis and optioned pitcher Tyler Lyons to the same club, the team announced.
The move is a reversal of a move made earlier in May to insert Lyons into the major-league rotation, where he posted a 5.54 ERA and 17:5 K:BB ratio in 13 innings across three starts. Tuivailala owns a 2.13 ERA and 13:2 K:BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings with Memphis and has made one appearance with the Cardinals.
Cardinals starter Tyler Lyons can't get past the fourth on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Cardinals starter Tyler Lyons still wasn't able to give his team a quality start on Saturday against the Tigers. The young left-hander allowed three runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings in the 10-inning loss to Detroit. He struck out five and walked two on the afternoon.
Lyons put his team in a hole right out of the gate as he allowed a solo home run to Miguel Cabrera in the top of the first. Ian Kinsler and Yoenis Cespedes touched him for a couple of additional runs in the third. Lyons was able to get the first two outs of the fourth, but after a single from Kinsler, manager Mike Matheny had seen enough.
Lyons threw 80 pitches, 55 for strikes. He has yet to pitch more than five innings this season, and will carry a hefty 5.54 ERA into his next start which is scheduled for Thursday in New York against the Mets.
