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) will be examined Monday to determined if he can begin preparing for his next start, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Cardinals hope Lynn can return after the 15-day minimum, which would set him up to face the Marlins on either June 24 or 25. He just finished seven days of inactivity, and the team hopes it was enough to fix the inflammation in his forearm. Even if he isn't quite ready by the 24th or 25th, Lynn doesn't appear to be in danger of missing a long stretch.
