Lynn (elbow) will make his next rehab start Wednesday with Double-A Springfield, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn increased his pitch count from 27 pitches in his first rehab outing to 36 in his second, and he will bump up to 50 pitches in his third outing Wednesday. He will likely throw at least a couple more times in the minors, but should be ready to join the Cardinals' rotation at some point in early-to-mid September.

Lynn tossed 1.2 scoreless innings, struck out two, and allowed just one hit over 27 pitches in his first rehab appearance Monday at High-A Palm Beach.

EDGE Analysis

Consider Lynn is not yet a year removed from Tommy John surgery, it seems optimistic to expect him to be able to return this year, but the Cardinals may be hoping he can return for September or the playoffs. His first time on the mound went about as well as can be expected, but what's more important will be how he feels Tuesday morning. We'll keep monitoring his rehabilitation efforts for more news about his return schedule.

Lynn (elbow) will make a rehab start with the Cardinals High-A Palm Beach affiliate Monday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn, who underwent Tommy John surgery last November, appears to be at the early end of the rehab schedule. A start with High-A marks his first return to the mound since last season and a big step towards a potential return in September. More on a timetable should be established as he progresses further in the schedule.

Lynn (elbow) has thrown seven live batting practice sessions and will continue with those through the end of August, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Now close to nine months removed from undergoing Tommy John surgery, Lynn is throwing off the bullpen mound regularly, building his workload up as high as 45 pitches in some sessions. He recently began incorporating his offspeed pitches, and while he is not expecting to make it back to the majors this season, Lynn is not ruling out the possibility. Manager Mike Matheny said Lynn was "further along that I thought he'd be as far as the intensity" after watching Lynn's bullpen session Thursday.

Lynn is planning a visit to St. Louis in June, during which he's expected to throw a bullpen session and have his elbow re-examined, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

While initially expected to miss the entirety of the 2016 campaign, Lynn says that if his rehab program continues without any setbacks, it's possible for him to throw at the latter end of the season. Cardinals' manager Mike Matheny has also expressed that the team is pleased with Lynn's progress.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn underwent Tommy John surgery last November and is slated to miss the entire 2016 campaign. His placement on the 60-day DL will open up a 40-man roster spot that the Cardinals can use on another pitcher.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Lynn underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday and will miss the entire 2016 season, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Lynn will be available out of the bullpen Friday for Game 1 of the NLDS, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Mike Matheny suggested he would only turn to Lynn in an emergency, perhaps if John Lackey is chased early or the game goes into extras. Lynn finished the regular season with a 3.03 ERA and 167 strikeouts, but he showed some signs of fatigue down the stretch. He will start Game 4 on Tuesday, if necessary.

Lynn will start Game 4 of the NLDS, Benjamin Hochman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.
