by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

John Lackey will then finish out the Chicago series April 8. Michael Wacha will open a three-game series April 10 at Cincinnati, and he will be followed by Carlos Martinez before the rotation resets. 

Lynn is on track to start the home opener on April 13 against the Brewers.

Cardinals' Lance Lynn surrenders two runs in outing Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn gave up two runs on six hits, including a home run, in five innings of work Saturday against the Tigers.

Lynn added five strikeouts and lowered his ERA to 4.50.

"It was good to get out there and face hitters and get your pitches in and get your work done and come out of it healthy," Lynn said to MLB.com. "That's all that really matters right now. I've felt good the last two times out with everything. I'm just going to keep going that direction."

Cardinals' Lance Lynn (hip) tosses four innings Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn (hip) allowed just one hit in four scoreless innings while striking out three and walking none Monday against the Yankees.

The game between the Cardinals and Yankees was cancelled in the fifth inning due to weather, but Lynn was able to face 13 batters in his return from a hip flexor strain. It was his first Grapefruit League action since making his spring debut March 8.

Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (hip) ready to return Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn will return to Grapefruit League action Monday against the Red Sox, and he's expected to throw 50 or more pitches in the outing, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Lynn has been sidelined by a hip flexor strain but was able to throw an aggressive simulated game Wednesday without issue. Provided he doesn't suffer a setback over the remainder of the spring, Lynn figures to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Cardinals' Lynn impresses with changeup during simulated game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn (hip) threw three innings during a simulated game Wednesday, per MLB.com. While results weren't the main focus Wednesday, Lynn was able to showcase an improved changeup.

"I had never seen it like that," outfielder Jon Jay, who also participated in the simulated game, said. "Same thing with [Adam Wainwright] the other day. [Lynn's] changeup was filthy. It's just another weapon to his arsenal.

"Those guys are already good, and that's what makes them special. They keep on continuing to grow and get better. You see that with Lance now. He's taking that next step to try and solidify himself as that guy that everyone looks to."

Lynn is hoping the changeup will become an asset against left-handed batters, who have compiled a .256/.355/.409 slash line against the right-hander in his career.

"It's just amazing what that does when you increase the number of weapons that you have and pitches that take you off what your strengths are," manager Mike Matheny said. "To be able to throw that cutter that looks like a four-seam [fastball], all of a sudden makes his fastball harder. And being able to throw that breaking ball for strikes, and the way the changeup is coming out -- all the way around, he is improving as a pitcher. He's just becoming a little more versatile."

Lynn has thrown several side sessions since leaving his March 8 spring start due to a left hip flexor strain. He would have been back in action Wednesday, if the Cardinals didn't have an off-day.

"It felt as good as it has the last week or so," Lynn said about his injured hip. "I treated it like I would a normal spring start. I knew I was fine. I knew I was healthy. I wasn't worried about anything. I just had to get the pitches in."
