by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Despite producing a quality start in Tuesday's contest, Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn received a no-decision during the 2-1 loss to the White Sox.

Lynn allowed one run on six hits over six innings of work. He also struck out six and walked one during the outing. He now has a 2.74 ERA on the season.

Jaime Garcia scratched from Tuesday's start for Cardinals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia didn't throw his bullpen session as planned on Saturday, and he's been scratched from his scheduled start on Tuesday. 

Garcia was forced to leave his previous start after injuring his groin running the bases. 

Lance Lynn will make the start on Tuesday in Garcia's place, per the Belleville News Democrat.


Cardinals SP Lance Lynn shines in first start off DL on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) Making his first start since June 7, Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn was excellent on Thursday. Lynn fired six shutout innings, allowing just two hits against the Marlins. He lowered his ERA to 2.84 in the 5-1 victory.

Lynn did walk four batters, but he struck out six, and he was able to avoid any serious damage, as no runner got past second base against him.

"To go up there and to walk four and not give up any runs is a good feeling and I was able to move the ball in and out and had good movement on all the pitches," Lynn told reporters, per FoxSports Midwest. "I was able to mix it up when I needed to so that was good."

Lynn was activated off the disabled list prior to Thursday's start. He had been dealing with a forearm strain, but he was able to come back after missing just two starts. And he showed no signs of rust, as he picked up his fifth win of the season on Thursday.

"He was climbing with the four-seamer, controlling counts, trusting his defense to make plays by pounding the zone and threw a couple offspeed pitches," manager Mike Matheny said. "He busted out the changeup, that only curveball he threw, but for the most part cutting, sinking and four-seaming the fastball worked well."


Cardinals activate Lance Lynn from DL; option Tyler Lyons to Triple-A


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2015) 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' Lance Lynn to come off DL on Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn will come off the disabled list Thursday, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Lynn is on the disabled list with a right forearm strain, but is eligible to come off Tuesday. Lynn recently threw a bullpen session, which manager Mike Matheny said went fine.

"He's good to go. He passed every test," Matheny said. 


Cardinals' Lance Lynn (forearm) could be nearing return from DL


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn threw a bullpen session on Saturday, the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list with a forearm strain on June 12. Lynn tossed about 35 warm-up pitches, and then threw about one inning-worth of pitches.

Lynn is eligible to come off the DL on Thursday in Miami, though the team may opt to wait until the weekend-series against the Cubs at home, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"We just wanted to make sure it fired up the way it's supposed to. And everything felt good," Lynn said.


Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (forearm) plays catch on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/16/2015) Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn, on the disabled list with a forearm injury, played catch on Tuesday. It's the first time that Lynn has thrown since landing on the DL on Friday. 

He's expected to continue throwing this week, and will stay in St. Louis while the team heads to Minnesota. He will then re-join the Cardinals on Friday in Philadelphia and plans to throw a bullpen session. Lynn and manager Mike Matheny are hopeful the right-hander will be able to return when first eligible on June 23 for a start against the Marlins in Miami.

"Instead of [the tightness] being ahead of us, hopefully this will give us a chance for us to stay ahead or right along with it," Lynn said, per MLB.com. "Seven days off of throwing isn't really going to make a difference. But for me, I'm just trying to make sure everything feels right going forward. That's probably going to make the biggest difference."


John Mozeliak: Lance Lynn (forearm) to miss two starts


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak, on the FOX Sports Midwest channel, said that pitcher Lance Lynn is expected to miss two starts due to his right forearm injury. 

Lynn will resume throwing on Tuesday. 

Lynn was scheduled to have his forearm examined on Monday and it appears he got a good prognosis. He is on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in the forearm.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn will undergo tests Monday to gauge the extent of his forearm injury, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Lynn is on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right forearm. The injury occurred when his forearm began to tighten during his last start.

"At no point did we want to force it," Lynn said. "You want to be aware and keep the forearm from taking the brunt of everything else or having inflammation become something else."


Cardinals place SP Lance Lynn on DL with forearm strain


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) The Cardinals announced Friday they have placed starter Lance Lynn on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain and recalled left-hander Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis to make Lynn's start Saturday. 

Lynn experienced tightness in his forearm during last Sunday's start against the Dodgers and after treatment and exams, the Cardinals decided to place him on the DL. 

According to MLB.com, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said Lynn could have pitched through the injury but that the team wants to be cautious. Lynn was 4-4 with a 3.07 ERA in 12 starts this season for the Cardinals, who have been hit hard by injuries this season.

Cardinals SP Lance Lynn receives treatment on forearm


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2015) Despite receiving treatment on his forearm Monday, Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn said he has pitched through the issue before and he intends to make his next start, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It's something we want to watch," manager Mike Matheny said Monday, per MLB.com. "Every guy's sore the day after they throw 100 pitches. He's sore today, and we're going to keep an eye on it and figure out where to go from there. What they're seeing right now looks good structurally. We're just always concerned that something could flare up."

Lynn experienced tightness in his forearm during Sunday's start against the Dodgers. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Royals.

"When I went out to the mound, that was the conversation," Matheny said of Lynn. "He said, 'Hey, it's nothing new, this is what I deal with from time to time.' The [training staff] didn't seem that concerned."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

He also struck out five batters and walked one during the outing. Lynn picked up his fourth win of the season for his effort and his ERA now stands at 3.03.

"He was great, and really is finding a great feel for manipulating the fastball with cuts, sink and four-seam," manager Mike Matheny said of Lynn, per MLB.com. "Not many guys can get away with what he's doing. But he's locating it so well and taking off a little bit to put more run on and he's doing a real nice job."

The 7 2/3 innings was Lynn's longest outing of the season. He has now tossed at least six innings in nine of his 11 starts this season. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Cardinals SP Lance Lynn pitches through back cramps Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Although Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn was able to go six innings Friday against the Royals, he labored through back cramps. Lynn started to feel the back cramps while warming up in the bullpen, per MLB.com.

"There are going to be games where you don't feel good and you just have to go out there and see what you can do," Lynn said. "When it was all said and done, two pitches cost me five runs.

"The only time I'm going to come out of the game is if I can't walk off. I hope it's just one of those nights, but you never know. You have to pitch through things as the season wears on."

Lynn received treatment following his start Friday and will be re-evaluated Saturday. He anticipates making his next start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

"We'll get it fixed and see what we can do to get going," Lynn said.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny could see Lynn was struggling with something Friday, as he allowed five runs on 10 hits and one walk.

"He was holding back a little bit," Matheny said of Lynn. "That's what kind of had us concerned. He wasn't finishing his pitches."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn allowed one run on six hits in seven innings of work in St. Louis' 2-1 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Lynn's only blemish came in the first inning when he allowed an RBI double to Miguel Cabrera, who drove home Ian Kinsler from first. Lynn settled in after that and struck out seven throughout the rest of his start.

"Lance was great, no question about it," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny  to MLB.com. "That's what you really want from a guy who is taking charge of a staff. That's an outing where we need somebody to step up big, bow his neck and say, 'This is my game.' That's exactly what he did."

Lynn, now 3-3, moved his ERA to 2.96 in 48 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Royals. 


Lance Lynn pitches six shutout innings in Cardinals' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Lynn moved to 2-3 on the season, after giving up four hits, four walks and striking out nine. He threw 118 pitches, 67 strikes.

"He reaches back," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He's able to locate [the four-seamer] and elevate it and then the [sinker] was working, too. [The four-seamer] is hard to pick up once you've got a couple elevated and he's got good movement going on the sinker."

Lynn's next start is scheduled for Sunday, at home against Detroit.


Cardinals mull six-man rotation, prefer Garcia to Gonzales


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The Cardinals are considering moving to a six-man rotation to help battle the loss of ace Adam Wainwright, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s not something we would rule out," general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday. "It’s something we’ve talked about, but we haven’t decided if that’s the best option for us. It’s something I think a lot about, and I know (manager) Mike (Matheny) and (pitching coach Derek Lilliquist) do too. It’s on the table."

With Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez not being ticketed for 200-inning seasons, the team is considering whether to roll out a six-man rotation or to go with a five-man rotation and periodically skip starts of the two younger pitchers while giving others spot starts in their place. However, a six-man rotation could throw off the routines of Lance Lynn and John Lackey. If the team does opt for a five-man rotation, Jaime Garcia is the preferred long-term option over Marco Gonzales.

"If Jaime is good to go, we’ll try to find a spot in the rotation for him," Mozeliak said. "When he’s been healthy, Jaime has been a very good pitcher."

Garcia is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis Sunday.


Cardinals P Lance Lynn allows five runs Wednesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn struggled during the opening frame of Wednesday's game and he never recovered in route to a 6-5 loss to the Cubs.

"I just couldn't make the pitch when I needed to," Lynn said, per MLB.com. "I was in some spots to make pitches to get out of innings, and just couldn't get it done tonight. I was leaving balls in the middle of the plate at the wrong time."

Lynn allowed two runs on four hits in the opening frame. He finished the game allowing five runs on eight hits over six innings. He also struck out six batters and walked two. He received his third loss of the season for his effort.

"It was a tough zone, floating around a little bit, and he was fighting, trying to, I think, make perfect pitches at times," manager Mike Matheny said. "But he did a nice job using his cutter. His curveball hurt him one time when he left it up and it got too much of the plate. But otherwise, it was a real effective pitch for him. And he found a real nice feel for his fastball."

His main mistake was a two-run home run to Anthony Rizzo in the third inning. As a result of the performance, his ERA rose from 3.07 to 3.82.

His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Cleveland.


Cardinals P Lance Lynn strikes out 10 batters Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn allowed one run on four hits over seven solid innings of work during Friday's 2-1 win over the Pirates.

Lynn also struck 10 batters and walked one to lower his ERA to 3.07. The 10 strike outs were a season high for Lynn. Despite the solid effort, Lynn received a no-decision.

The lone run Lynn surrendered came in the sixth inning when A.J. Burnett singled in a run. Lynn has allowed one run in four of his five starts this season.

His next scheduled start is expected to be Wednesday against the Cubs


Cardinals' Lance Lynn allows six runs in loss vs. Brewers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn was rocked in a loss Sunday, allowing six earned runs on 10 hits and one walk in five innings while striking out six in his team's 6-3 defeat against the Brewers.

Lynn (1-2) was facing a Brewers lineup without Carlos Gomez, Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett but couldn't find success, giving up three runs on a triple and a home run in the third inning and then allowing three more runs during a fifth inning that featured three doubles.

Lynn's first rough outing of the season gives him a 3.63 ERA and 26:7 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Pirates at home Friday.
