Lynn (3-4) gave up five runs on 10 hits and a walk over six innings in Friday's shutout loss to the Royals.

All the damage came on a pair of homers by Kendrys Morales -- one in the first and one in the third -- so perhaps Lynn has learned his lesson about pitching to that particular guy. Lynn's season ERA is still a reasonable 3.46, but his WHIP has been inflated to 1.32, thanks to a trio of rough outings in his last six starts. He'll next face the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Lynn dealt with back cramps during Friday's loss to the Royals, MLB.com reports.

Manager Mike Matheny noticed that Lynn didn't look right early on, as he consistently fell behind in the count and was not cutting the ball loose, but Lynn convinced Matheny he was fine to continue pitching. Lynn struggled in his six innings, allowing five runs on 10 hits, but said he expects to make his next start after receiving treatment. The team will re-evaluate him Saturday before plotting out his activity for the coming days.

Lynn (3-4) had a rough outing Friday against the Royals, surrendering five runs on ten hits and a walk while striking out four in six innings to take the loss.

Lynn has still been solid as ever this year, posting a 3.46 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and striking out 62 batters in 54.2 innings pitched. Owners would surely like to see his WHIP come down a bit and he'll look to get back on track at home against Arizona next week.

Lynn came up with another strong outing on Sunday, allowing just one run while striking out seven across 7.1 innings to earn his third win of the season.

The 28-year-old has shown this season that his breakout 2014 campaign was no fluke, as he is posting similar solid ratios to go along with a career-high 10.8 K/9 that has fantasy owners rejoicing. Lynn will look to continue his stellar start to the season against the Royals on Friday.

Lynn pitched six shutout innings Tuesday, allowing four hits while walking four and fanning nine in Cleveland.

The big righty labored, needing 118 pitches (67 strikes) to get through six frames, but all in all this was a very strong outing for his fantasy owners. He was struck on the right hand by a hard grounder to the mound in the second inning, but he remained in the game.

Lynn struck out 10 and walked one while holding the Pirates to one run on four hits over seven innings Friday night.

He was locked in a pitcher's duel with A.J. Burnett on Friday night, but the Cards' offense didn't score the decisive run until the 10th inning, leaving Lynn without a decision for the effort. Through five starts, he's carrying a career-high 29.8% K% (career 23.3%) while walking fewer batters (6.6% BB%) than he has at any point as a big leaguer. Lynn will face the Cubs on Wednesday in his next scheduled start.

Lynn struggled against the Brewers on Sunday, giving up six runs on ten hits and one walk while striking out six over 5.0 innings.

The big righty had been stellar this year and entered the game with a 1.56 ERA, so owners can chalk this one up to just one rough outing. Wins have been hard to come by for Lynn in the early going, but he is striking out batters at a high rate so there isn't too much to complain about. He will look to get back on track against the Pirates on Friday.

Lynn will oppose a struggling Brewers offense in Milwaukee in his next start Sunday at Miller Park.
