Lance Lynn: Does not accept qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn declined the Cardinals' qualifying offer prior to Thursday's deadline, Bill Shaikin of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Following the rejection of his $17.4 million offer, Lynn will officially become a free agent and is ready to test the open market this winter. The 30-year-old started 33 games for St. Louis this past season, posting a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 186.1 innings.

Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Receives qualifying offer from Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn was tendered a qualifying offer by the Cardinals prior to Monday's deadline, the Los Angeles Times reports.

It's expected that he'll decline the one-year, $17.4 million tender and seek a multi-year contract on the open market in the coming weeks. Lynn pitched well in 2017 after missing all of 2016 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he's fallen short of 200 innings in each of the last four seasons he's pitched. If Lynn enters the market as expected, he'll be doing so following a season that included the lowest strikeout rate (7.4 K/9), highest walk rate (3.8 BB/9), and highest home-run rate (1.30 HR/9) of his career.

Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Wild in final appearance before free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn allowed one run on three hits with four walks and five strikeouts over five innings in Thursday's no-decision against the Cubs.

Lynn held Chicago off the board after surrendering an Ian Happ home run in the first, but still needed 86 pitches to get through five frames while finishing one walk shy of his season worst. The 30-year-old righty faded down the stretch, failing to pitch more than five innings in any of his final four starts after logging at least six in each of his previous 12 outings and posting quality starts in all but one of those. Lynn did a tremendous job of rebuilding his value heading into free agency after missing all of the 2016 campaign due to Tommy John surgery, finishing with double-digit wins for the fifth time while posting a 3.43 ERA.

Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Rocked for eight earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (11-8) took the loss Saturday, giving up eight runs on six hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning against the Pirates. He struck out one batter.

This was a disaster, as Lynn only managed two outs on 42 pitches (25 strikes). His season ERA has jumped more than half a run -- from 2.94 to 3.47 -- over his last three starts, and he has just three more strikeouts (16) than walks (13) in five September outings. Fatigue may be a factor, with Lynn now past 180 innings in his first season back from Tommy John surgery. He lines up to face the Cubs at home next week in his final start of the regular season.

Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Struggles again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn lasted only four innings in Sunday's no-decision at Wrigley Field, allowing three runs on five hits with four walks and five strikeouts.

Lynn exited down 3-0, but Dexter Fowler's sixth-inning three-run homer got him off the hook even though Chicago ultimately triumphed 4-3. While this is the second consecutive start in which Lynn has pitched five or fewer innings while allowing three earned runs, he had been rock-solid with 11 quality starts in his previous 12 outings. Look for him to bounce back on the road Saturday against the light-hitting Pirates.
