Lynn allowed five runs on nine hits, walking one and striking out five over four innings of a 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Friday night.

Lynn (6-5, 2.90 ERA) just wasn't sharp in this one, allowing runs in three of the four innings he pitched. He had been solid in three starts since missing time with a forearm strain in mid-June, so the Cardinals will look for him to bounce back following next week's All-Star break.

Lynn picked up the win Sunday, allowing one unearned run on three hits and three walks while striking out eight over seven innings against the Padres.

The right-hander wasn't just terrific on the mound, he also helped his cause at the plate, going 2-for-2 with two runs scored in the Cardinals' 3-1 victory. Lynn has shown no ill effects of the forearm injury that sent him to the DL last month in three starts since returning, giving up just one earned run over 19 innings to lower his ERA to 2.53. The 28-year-old will face off against the Pirates in Pittsburgh his next start.

Lynn took a no decision in a quality start Tuesday against the White Sox, as he allowed one run on six hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out six.

Lynn has been a model of consistency, going at least five innings in all 15 starts and allowing less than two earned runs in 12 of the 15 (80 percent). His ERA also fell to 2.74 after Tuesday's performance, exactly matching his 2014 mark. "Consistency" in pitching is often just a synonym for good, but few pitchers have been as predictably solid as Lynn over the past two years.

Lynn will have his next scheduled start moved up from Wednesday to Tuesday, Luke Thompson of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

With Jaime Garcia getting pushed off Tuesday's turn while he continues to battle a groin injury, Lynn will be the main beneficiary, as he'll now pick up a two-start week. Both matchups look quite favorable for Lynn, as Tuesday's outing will come against the light-hitting White Sox, while Sunday's opponent will be a home date against the Padres.

Lynn (forearm) was officially activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday.

Lynn was already announced as Thursday's starter, so it was just a matter of time before the move was official. The Cardinals optioned Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move, opening up a spot on the 25-man roster.

Lynn (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list on Thursday and start against Miami, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Cardinals haven't indicated who will be sent back to Triple-A yet but Tyler Lyons is probably the most likely. Owners should feel comfortable inserting Lynn back into their lineups this week.

Lynn (forearm) threw a bullpen session without any issues Saturday and may throw one more bullpen session before being activated some time in the latter half of next week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Manager Mike Matheny wants to see how Lynn recovers from this bullpen session before deciding if he'd like him to throw one more before being activated. He's eligible to come off of the disabled list on Tuesday during the Cardinals series against Miami, but it's possible he could be held back until the Cardinals face the Cubs next weekend.

Lynn (forearm) will throw a bullpen session for Cardinals officials in Philadelphia on Friday and if all goes well he'll likely start next week in Miami, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Lynn could come off the DL when first eligible on June 23rd. He hasn't had any setbacks thus far so owners should be optimistic for his status next week. The Cardinals will likely reveal his status some time over the weekend.
