Cardinals SP Lance Lynn just OK in earning 10th victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2015) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn is still seeking his dominant form from June and early July, but he did snag his 10th victory Monday night in Arizona.

Lynn surrendered two runs on nine hits in six innings to raise his record to 10-8. He walked two and whiffed only three.

A Welington Castillo homer in the second and RBI double by Aaron Hill in the sixth did all the damage against him.

Lynn has given up seven runs over his last 13 1/3 innings.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) Despite producing a quality start Tuesday against the Giants, Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn was on the losing end of the 2-0 game.

Cardinals' Lance Lynn suffers horrid outing against Pirates


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/13/2015) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn did not have a good night on the mound on Thursday. The right-hander was unable to make out of the first inning against the Pirates, as he was tagged for seven runs (three earned) on six hits while recording two outs in the inning. He threw a whopping 41 pitches before getting yanked from the game.

Lynn (9-7) was able to retire the lead-off man in the first, but then allowed six consecutive batters to reach. That included a fielding error, as well as a two-run home run by Pedro Alvarez that busted the inning wide open.

This was the shortest start of Lynn's career, and the seven runs are a season-high. He was coming off of a six-inning shutout in his previous start. Even after this nightmare outing, Lynn still sports a fine 2.95 ERA this season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals' Lance Lynn endures shortest outing of season Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/10/2015) Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn did not have a strong outing in his start against the Pirates on Friday. Lynn allowed five runs on nine hits over four innings. He walked one and struck out five, en route to the 5-2 loss.

Lynn (6-5) was down early when he allowed a first-inning run. Then, after the Cardinals took a 2-1 lead, Lynn gave the lead right back with two more runs allowed in the bottom half of the inning. To compound matters, Lynn then gave up a two-run home run to Neil Walker in the fifth, and the Cardinals were unable to recover. 

"When you're behind in counts and you're throwing the ball over the middle of the plate, you're going to get beat, especially against this team, a good fastball-hitting team," Lynn said, per MLB.com.

The five runs allowed was the most for Lynn since he allowed five on May 22, and the four innings makes this his shortest outing of the year. He still exits the first half of the season with a very fine 2.90 ERA.

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."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

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.

"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."

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.

Cardinals place SP Lance Lynn on DL with forearm strain


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

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

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.
