      Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Playing catch

      Lynn (elbow) played catch from 60 feet on Monday for the first time as he recovers from Tommy John surgery last November, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Lynn experienced no issues. Even if everything goes perfectly in his recovery it's unlikely he be back to provide any fantasy value this season. It's possible, however, that he could provide a bullpen arm for the Cardinals in the playoffs.

      Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

      Lynn underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday and will miss the entire 2016 season, Jenifer Langosch of reports. While Lynn battled elbow and forearm issues toward the middle of the year, there was never any indication that his ulnar collateral ligament was damaged. The right-hander allowed just one run over his final three starts of 2015, lowering his ERA for the season to 3.03. Fortunately for St. Louis, Adam Wainwright should be available to step into Lynn's rotation spot, with Tyler Lyons, Tim Cooney (abdomen) and Marco Gonzalez waiting in the wings if there are other injuries.

      St. Louis Cardinals' Lance Lynn Will start Game 4

      Lynn will start Game 4 of the NLDS, Benjamin Hochman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. It's unclear who Lynn will matchup against as the Mets have yet to officially announce their Game 4 starter, however it appears as if he might face Steven Matz who is attempting bounce back from an injury to his back which he suffered near the end of September. Lynn has been automatic as of late, giving up just one run in his last 16 innings. That being said, anything can change during the postseason.

      Cardinals' Lance Lynn doesn't allow a run in second straight start

      Cardinals starter Lance Lynn went five scoreless innings en route to a no-decision Monday, allowing four hits while walking four and striking out six in a 3-0 victory over the Pirates. Lynn has quelled concerns of late-season fatigue by tossing 11 scoreless innings in his last two outings. The right-hander pitched out of trouble in the third inning, stranding the bases loaded with one out by retiring Starling Marte and Neil Walker. Lynn's four walks contributed to a high pitch count given his five-inning performance; the 28-year-old has not exceeded six innings in the month of September. On his final start of the regular season, Lynn will take on the Braves at Turner Field on Sunday.

      Cardinals SP Lance Lynn throws six scoreless innings in win

      Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn (12-10) went six shutout innings Wednesday, allowing four hits while walking none and striking out four in a 10-2 drubbing of the Reds. Lynn departed at 89 pitches, having been staked to a comfortable 6-0 lead by the end of the fifth inning. Wednesday's excellent start ends a string of poor performances from Lynn, who had pitched to a 9.26 ERA in his last three outings. As the Cardinals advance their lead in the NL Central, look for Lynn to see an innings decrease in anticipation of the playoffs.

      Cardinals SP Lance Lynn suffers rough outing Friday

      Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn allowed three runs on four hits, walking six and striking out two over 3.1 innings, but came away with a no-decision in the Cardinals 8-3 loss to the Cubs on Friday afternoon. Another poor performance from Lynn who has struggled as the season winds down. He has now walked 27 in 43 innings since the beginning of August and may simply be out of gas. He has a history of wearing down later in the year, and it wouldn't be surprising if we see the Cardinals try to limit his workload over the final days prior to the playoffs.

      Cardinals' Lance Lynn gives up big three-run home run in loss

      Cardinals starter Lance Lynn rebounded from a dreadful effort his last time out to post a quality start against the Reds on Saturday. Lynn held the Reds to three runs on four hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out three and pitched very well for much of the game. He held a 1-0 lead heading into the fifth inning. But he served up a three-run home run to former Cardinal, Skip Schumaker. The Cardinals went on to the 5-1 loss. Lynn (11-10, 3.17 ERA) was rocked for six runs in 2 1/3 innings in his previous start, so this was a sure sign of relief for the Cardinals.

      Ankle issue has Cardinals SP Lance Lynn scratched Friday

      Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn will not be a starting pitcher this weekend as first planned. He has been skipped in the rotation due to a mild ankle sprain, per KMOV. Lynn had been scheduled to pitch Friday in the opener of a key series against Pittsburgh. The right-hander is coming off one of his finest performances of the season when he tossed seven shutout innings in San Francisco. His injury is not considered serious, so he appears likely to pitch against the Cubs in another important set next week.
