Lance Lynn strikes out seven in loss vs. Rays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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
(7/21/2014) 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).

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lance Lynn picks up 10th win Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn picked up his 10th win Wednesday.

Lynn allowed two earned runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings of work. He walked two and struck out four during the outing. Neil Walker proved to be a thorn in his side Wednesday. Walker hit a solo home run in the second inning, and then doubled, and eventually came around to score, in the fourth. He accounted for both runs against Lynn. 

The win moves Lynn to 10-3 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break .


Lance Lynn dazzles in win over Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lynn has not permitted an earned run in three of his last five starts. He owns a 3.17 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 18 starts (108 innings). He will look to keep rolling Wednesday at home against Pittsburgh.

Blister to blame for Lance Lynn's Saturday struggle


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn was dealing with a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand Saturday, which he told MLB.com impacted his performance in a 9-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Lynn lasted just two innings in the game, after giving up seven runs -- six earned. Though he said the blister affected his ability to toss offspeed pitches, there is no indication this is serious enough to put Lynn's next start in jeopardy.

Lynn is scheduled to take on the Marlins next Friday, but the team might keep an extra eye on him during between-start work. 


Lance Lynn lasts just two innings in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn didn't last long Saturday against the Dodgers, as he was chased after just two innings in a 9-1 loss.

Lynn got through the first inning allowing one run, but the wheels came off in the second. The Dodgers jumped on him for six runs in the second, leaving him charged with six earned runs on nine hits and a pair of walks in two innings. Lynn also struck out two batters while throwing 61 pitches in the loss.

Lynn has now dropped four of his last six decisions to fall to 8-6 on the season. He carries a 3.38 ERA into his next outing, set for Friday against Miami. 


Lance Lynn believes he was tipping his pitches


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn believes he may have been tipping his pitches earlier in the season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Lynn and team coaches determined he may have been tipping his pitches during his June 6 start based on how hitters were reacting to his breaking balls. Lynn worked to eliminate any differences in his windup, and focused on positioning his hand the same way no matter what pitch he was throwing. 

Lynn has been excellent over his last three starts, allowing two earned runs over 22 innings.


Lance Lynn shines with eight scoreless innings Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Lynn (8-5) was dominant in the thin Colorado air, retiring 16 straight batters after giving up a one-out single in the first inning. After giving up two more singles with two outs in the six, the St. Louis starter retired the final seven batters he faced. Lynn owns a 2.90 ERA and 89:35 K:BB ratio in 99 1/3 innings after Monday's gem. He's set to face the Dodgers Saturday.


Lance Lynn not quite good enough in Wednesday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn pitched well Wednesday against the Mets - but not well enough. He was outdueled by Bartolo Colon.

Lynn lost a 1-0 lead in the sixth on three hits, including an RBI double by Eric Young and run-scoring single by David Wright. Lynn made it through that inning, but was removed for a pinch-hitter and finished having given up two runs on five hits with four walks and five strikeouts.

After seven quality starts in his last eight outings, he is set to go again Monday in Colorado.


Lance Lynn twirls a gem in win over Nationals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his last two starts covering 13 innings, Lynn has permitted only two earned runs. He owns a 3.16 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. He will make his next start Wednesday at home against the Mets.

Lance Lynn walks four in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn struggled with his control a bit, but kept his team in it in a 3-1 loss to the Blue Jays Friday.

Lynn was working out of trouble all game long, as he stranded nine baserunners in the first four innings total. He ended up allowing two runs on six hits and four walks in five innings, while striking out six batters on 110 pitches.

Lynn dropped his second decision in a row, and is now 6-4 on the season. He carries a 3.49 ERA into his next outing, set for Friday against the Nationals. 


Lance Lynn expected to go Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lance Lynn cleared for next start after tests come back clean


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn is expected to make his next start after all tests on his injured knee came back negative Monday, the team announced.

Lynn hyper-extended the knee in the first inning of his ugly outing Sunday and said after the game that it was bothering him. He'll likely receive a little extra rest in the coming days, but he should be on the mound Friday in Toronto.


Lance Lynn having knee examined Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn is having his knee examined Monday after hyper-extending it Sunday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Lynn suffered the injury covering first base in the first inning, but he remained in to give up seven runs (four earned) in 3 1/3 innings. He indicated after the start that the knee was bothering him. Lynn owns a 3.48 ERA and 63:27 K:BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings.


Lance Lynn knocked around in a loss to San Francisco


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn was knocked around and failed to make it past the fourth inning Sunday against the Giants, dropping to 6-3 on the year. The right-hander surrendered seven runs -- four earned -- on eight hits and four walks while striking out two in 3 1/3 innings of a 8-0 defeat.

Lynn has allowed four earned runs just twice over his last five starts. He owns a 3.48 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP through his first 12 starts (72 1/3 innings). He will look to get back on Friday at Toronto. He is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA in six starts at home.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn tossed the first complete game of his career Tuesday, in a 6-0 win over the Yankees.

Lynn, in his 75th start, finally went all nine innings for the first time. He shut the Yankees out while allowing just five hits and three walks, though he struck out just two batters as well. He picked up 16 of 27 outs via ground ball, while throwing 126 pitches, the 10th-highest total in the majors this season.

Lynn improved his record to 6-2 on the season, while lowering his ERA to 3.13 in 69 innings of work. His next start is set for Sunday against the Giants. 


Lance Lynn settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn worked his second consecutive quality start but failed to factor into the decision on Thursday against the Diamondbacks. The right-hander surrendered two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six in six innings of work in a 4-2 victory.

Over his last two starts covering 13 innings, Lynn has allowed only four earned runs. Lynn has posted 3.60 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP in 10 starts (60 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday at home against the Yankees. He is

Lance Lynn, Wade Miley pose interesting daily league options


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/21/2014) Looking ahead to Thursday, the Diamondbacks and Cardinals will close out their series with a pitching matchup that won't likely turn the heads of many Fantasy players. Lance Lynn has cooled off after a strong mid-April run, while Wade Miley and his near-5.00 ERA are starting in fewer than 20 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com. Despite outward appearances, both pitchers should be on the radar of daily leaguers.

I featured both Lynn and Miley in my recent blog post on pitchers with lopsided home/road splits, and because the game will take place at pitcher-friendly Busch Stadium, both are worth considering as starts in daily leagues for this upcoming matchup. Though Lynn has not been a great source of ERA overall, he has a career 3.14 ERA at home to go along with a rate of a strikeout per inning. Miley probably won't provide as many Ks, but he can go deep into games and has a career 3.33 ERA away from Chase Field.

Neither is a reliable option for weekly leaguers, but in the right spots, each can be profitable for owners, both in weekly and daily formats.


Lance Lynn picks up win No. 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn cruised through seven strong innings Friday, in a 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

Lynn actually fell behind early, and was down after four innings, before a big rally in the fifth got him up for good. He limited the Braves to two runs in his seven innings of work, on seven hits, six of which fell in for singles. He struck out three batters and walked two while throwing 69 of 110 pitches for strikes.

Lynn is now 5-2 after the win, snapping a three-start winless streak. He carries a 3.67 ERA into his net outing, set for Thursday against the Diamondbacks. 


Cardinals establish rotation plans following rainout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) With Wednesday's game against the Cubs rained out, the Cardinals are able to push everyone in the rotation back one day.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that will push Jaime Garcia into the rotation in Sunday's spot against the Braves, assuming he gets through his side session Thursday without issue. Michael Wacha will pitch Thursday, followed by Lance Lynn Friday, Shelby Miller Saturday, Garcia Sunday and Adam Wainwright Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. 


Lance Lynn drops second straight decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn struggled through his worst start in more than a month Saturday, in a 4-3 loss to the Pirates.  

Lynn made it through six innings, but wasn't at his sharpest in the loss. He was tagged for four runs on nine hits and a pair of walks, though he also struck out five batters.

Lynn is now 4-2 in eight starts, but is winless in his last four. He carries a 3.83 ERA into his next outing, set for Thursday against the Cubs. 


Lance Lynn stays sharp in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn tossed a quality start on Sunday against the Cubs, but the bullpen squandered a late lead, preventing him from his fifth victory.

Lynn yielded two-run single to Jason Hammel in the fourth inning for his only blemish of the night. He permitted two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out five over six innings of a 5-4 win. He tossed 102 pitches, 64 for strikes in a no-decision.

Following the win at Wrigley Field, Lynn lowered his ERA to 3.51 with a 45:15 K:BB ratio over 41 innings pitched. He'll look for his fifth win on Saturday at home against Pittsburgh. He is 1-0 with a 6.55 ERA in two starts at home.
