Lance Lynn SP STL 2 Days

Lance Lynn fanned 11 over seven innings and combined with Carlos Martinez on shutout of the Brewers on Monday.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Lance Lynn has spent the winter working at Busch Stadium with former teammate Chris Carpenter.

There's certainly no downside to taking tips from and working with one of the greatest pitchers in franchise history. The 26-year-old Lynn posted a 3.97 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 198/76 K/BB ratio over 201 2/3 innings while winning 15 games in 2013. While he reportedly may be in competition for a rotation spot, it would be incredibly surprising if he wasn't in the Opening Day rotation.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Joe Strauss expects the Cardinals to shop Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller this winter as they attempt to fill a hole at shortstop.

It makes sense, as the Cards have rotation depth to spare and need to get someone to replace Pete Kozma at short. They'll surely be more willing to deal Lynn, though Miller could be able to fetch more of a frontline shortstop. Lynn isn't arbitration-eligible until after the 2014 season, while Miller won't hit arbitration until after the 2015 campaign.

Lance Lynn struggled in a losing effort against the Red Sox in Game 4 of the World Series on Sunday, allowing three runs on three hits in his 5 2/3 innings of work.

Lynn also issued three free passes while punching out five. He was locked into a pitcher's duel, with the score knotted at 1-1 heading into the sixth inning. It was there that Lynn allowed a two out single to Dustin Pedroia and walked David Ortiz before giving way to Seth Maness. Jonny Gomes then greeted Maness with a dramatic three-run blast, giving the Red Sox the lead and hanging a pair of runs on Lynn's line. He now sports a disappointing 5.19 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 17/10 K/BB ratio through 17 1/3 postseason innings. Should the series head to a seventh game, Lynn could be available to work in relief.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced Friday that Lance Lynn will start Game 4 of the World Series against the Red Sox on Sunday.

The Cardinals had considered going with Adam Wainwright on short rest if the team was facing elimination, instead they'll now use their ace on normal rest in Game 5. The 26-year-old right-hander has appeared in three games this postseason (two starts), registering a 5.40 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 12/7 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 innings. It will be his first career start in the World Series.
