Cardinals SP Lance Lynn pitches through back cramps Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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."

Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn strikes out seven in win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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

Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn pitched six shutout innings to earn his second win of the year on Tuesday. 

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

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.
