  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Pitches well before weather delay

    Lynn (2-2) allowed one unearned run on two hits and struck out five without walking a batter over six innings versus the Orioles on Tuesday before the game was suspended due to inclement weather in the sixth inning. He ultimately picked up the win once the game resumed Wednesday.

    The game will be completed prior to Wednesday's regularly-scheduled contest, though Lynn's involvement is almost certainly done. This was arguably his best outing of the season, and it's impressive he did it against an offense as strong as Baltimore's. Through 51.1 innings over 10 starts, Lynn has a 3.68 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 48:20 K:BB. The veteran right-hander's next start is projected to be on the road versus the Reds.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Roughed up early in loss

    Lynn (1-2) took the loss against the Angels on Wednesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over five frames.

    Lynn got off to about as poor of a start as he could have asked for, surrendering a leadoff homer to Nolan Schanuel to open the game and failing to retire four of the first five batters he faced. All four runs surrendered by Lynn came in the first inning, though he would actually allow the first two batters to reach in the second as well, before working his way out of the jam. The veteran right-hander has now allowed four earned runs in three consecutive starts and has not made it through six innings since April 16 against the Athletics, which is a span of five starts.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Yields five runs in loss

    Lynn (1-1) took the loss Friday, allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against Milwaukee. He had five strikeouts.

    Lynn cruised through the Brewers order once, but the wheels had come off by the fifth inning. The 36-year-old got the hook after 85 pitches (51 strikes), leaving two on with two outs. Matthew Liberatore provided no help as he then allowed both inherited runners to score. Lynn has struggled over his past four starts, posting a 5.49 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB over 19.2 innings. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, which is scheduled to come on the road against the Angels.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Stumbles against former club

    Lynn came away with a no-decision Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on four hits and three walks over five-plus innings in a 6-5 extra-inning loss to the White Sox. He struck out four.

    Facing the team he spent two-plus seasons with before getting dealt to the Dodgers last July, Lynn struggled to find the strike zone on a rainy day and exited the game after 94 pitches (53 strikes). The veteran right-hander has worked at least five innings in five straight outings, and this was the first time in 2024 he's been tagged for more than four runs. Lynn will take a 3.28 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 33:16 K:BB through 35.2 innings into his next start, which is scheduled to come next week in Milwaukee.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Solid start against Mets

    Lynn didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Mets, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out three batters.

    Lynn walked at least three batters for the third time in his last four starts. However, the only run charged against him came on a solo home run by Francisco Lindor in the sixth. During his last four appearances, Lynn owns a 2.05 ERA with 17 strikeouts and 11 walks over 22.0 innings. He's lined up for a start against the White Sox on Saturday.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Fans seven in no-decision

    Lynn allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out seven in the win over Arizona.

    Lynn coughed up a pair of runs in the second inning and one more in the fifth. Despite producing only one quality start through five outings, he's sporting a strong 2.81 ERA through 25.2 frames. Lynn produced 12 whiffs Monday, including eight with his fastball. The veteran righty will carry a 26:10 K:BB into his next start, which is lined up to be on the road against the Mets this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Picks up first win

    Lynn (1-0) got the win over the Athletics on Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out one over seven innings.

    Lynn secured his first win as a member of the Cardinals since 2017, with the only damage against him being a fifth-inning solo home run from Kyle McCann. Tuesday marked just the second time in Lynn's lengthy career he picked up a win while striking out one batter or zero. He's allowed one earned run or fewer in three of four starts and currently owns a 2.18 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB in 20.2 innings. Lynn projects to take the mound again next week in a home start against the Diamondbacks.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Sharp vs. Phillies

    Lynn didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Phillies, allowing two unearned runs on one hit and four walks over five innings. He struck out six.

    After allowing a pair of unearned runs in the first inning, Lynn held the Phillies without a hit over his final four frames, though the Cardinals ultimately couldn't provide enough run support against Aaron Nola to get Lynn a victory. The veteran right-hander has yet to pitch into the sixth inning through three starts this season, though he's held opponents to four earned runs in his first 13.2 innings while striking out 18. Lynn's currently in line to face the A's on the road in his next outing.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Allows three homers in no-decision

    Lynn did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk over 4.2 innings versus the Marlins. He struck out seven.

    Lynn was sharp early, blanking Miami through his first three innings. However, he'd give up a leadoff home run to Jake Burger in the fourth before Josh Bell and Burger tacked on three more runs with back-to-back blasts in the fifth. Lynn struggled with the long ball last year, allowing a league-most 44 homers while struggling to a 5.73 ERA across 32 starts between the Dodgers and White Sox. The veteran right-hander has given up four runs on 12 hits through 8.2 innings in his first two starts this season.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Survives early trouble Saturday

    Lynn didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Dodgers, finishing with five strikeouts while allowing four hits and one walk over four scoreless frames.

    Lynn looked like he could be in for a long night when Los Angeles began the game by lacing three straight singles off him, but the veteran hurler bounced back by striking out Will Smith, Max Muncy and Teoscar Hernandez to escape the jam. The Dodgers put two more runners on base with one out in the second frame, but Lynn again got outs under pressure to emerge unscathed. The right-hander retired the final eight batters he faced but had his momentum stopped by a rain delay, and he didn't return to the mound after the interruption, having already thrown 70 pitches. Though Lynn certainly had some troubles Saturday, this was a positive season debut given the outcome, and it helps instill some hope that he can bounce back from last year's rough campaign during which he posted a career-worst 5.73 ERA.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Spring debut set for Friday

    Lynn is penciled in to make his Grapefruit League debut Friday versus the Nationals, John Denton of reports.

    Lynn has been working on the back fields so far, giving the Cardinals an opportunity to evaluate other pitchers in spring games. Lynn will don the Cardinals' jersey for the first time since 2017 after signing a one-year deal with the team in November. The right-hander endured the worst season of his career in 2023, posting a 5.73 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 44 home runs allowed over 183.2 innings between the White Sox and the Dodgers. He'll play most of 2024 at age 37, so it's unclear how much he'll be able to bounce back, though he'll at least have his home games in a pitcher-friendly stadium.
