Lynn (5-5) allowed seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three batters over 5.2 innings during Saturday's loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

After posting a 2.69 ERA and allowing just 22 earned runs over 73.2 innings through his first 13 starts of the season, Lynn has now surrendered 14 runs in his past two outings. While his recent struggles are extreme, Lynn sports a 5.54 FIP for the season, and his .219 BABIP is an unsustainably low mark. There are legitimate concerns, and a daunting date with the Diamondbacks at Chase Field is up next for Lynn. Being selective with his matchups going forward is advised.

Lynn (5-4) allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out five batters over 4.2 innings during Sunday's loss to Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn was particularly hurt by the long ball, as he allowed four home runs and now sports a concerning 1.8 HR/9. He still owns a rock-solid 3.33 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 for the campaign, but his 5.37 FIP also stands as a warning that more poor outings could be ahead. Lynn projects to make his next start against the Pirates at Busch Stadium.

Lynn (5-3) threw five scoreless innings in Tuesday's win over the Brewers, allowing three hits and four walks with eight strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn was in control from the start in this one and only ran into trouble in the fifth inning, when he loaded the bases with one out before escaping the jam unscathed. He labored a bit in that final frame, which played a part in his removal after 95 pitches, but the game was under control at that point and the bullpen closed it down without a hitch. Lynn hasn't completed six full innings in any of his last four starts as the club continues to monitor his workload, but he has allowed more than two runs just once in his last six outings to lower his ERA to a stellar 2.69. Even if he continues to get a relatively early hook in some starts, the 30-year-old continues to get the job done and will look to continue his recent success Sunday against the Orioles.

Lynn (4-3) allowed only one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings but had to settle for a no-decision in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He was lifted for a pinch hitter after throwing only 78 pitches (47 strikes) with the Cards ahead 3-1, and while it's good to see the club keep an eye on Lynn's workload in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, manager Mike Matheny may be second-guessing himself after watching his bullpen implode after Lynn left the game. The right-hander will get an extra day of rest before taking the mound Tuesday at home against the Brewers in the first game of a doubleheader.

Lynn (4-3) allowed two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings, but didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn had an early 2-0 lead, but departed the contest after allowing a game-tying run in the sixth inning while piling up a pitch count of 103. He's failed to pitch into the seventh innings in five of his last six starts, but his 2.97 ERA makes him an excellent fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Reds.

Lynn (4-3) pitched five innings, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk, while striking out three in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn allowed the first two hitters to reach in the bottom of the fourth inning, and Gerardo Parra made him pay with a three-run homer that extended the Rockies' lead to four. The Cardinals offense couldn't provide any support until after Lynn had left the game. Lynn entered the game on a solid streak of starts, but pitching in Coors Field has a way of putting an end to those types of things. Before entering the thin Denver air, Lynn had allowed more than two runs just once over his previous seven starts and won four of his last five decisions. Despite the subpar performance on Sunday, Lynn's ERA still sits at a sparkling 2.93.

Lynn didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Dodgers but racked up 10 strikeouts over eight innings while allowing one earned run on two hits and two walks.

EDGE Analysis

The hard-throwing right-hander went toe-to-toe with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, with a first-inning solo home run by Yasmani Grandal representing his one glaring mistake. Lynn was otherwise dominant over 123 pitches, inducing 18 swings-and-misses and setting season highs in innings pitched and strikeouts while allowing his fewest amount of hits in a 2017 start. The 30-year-old now has quality starts in six of his last seven trips to the mound and will look to keep the momentum going in a tough Coors Field matchup against the Rockies next Sunday.

Lynn (4-2) gave up four runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out four over six innings in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

He served up solo homers to Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley in the first two innings, but Lynn was still in line for a possible win before his defense let him down in the fifth. The 30-year-old has now delivered quality starts in five of his last six trips to the mound, and the Cards' schedule will afford him an extra couple days rest before his next outing Tuesday on the road against the Dodgers.

Lynn allowed four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five batters over four innings during Wednesday's win over Miami. He did not factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

This was Lynn's worst outing of the season, as he allowed two home runs in the bottom of the first inning. He also struggled with his command throwing just 61 of 104 pitchers for strikes. The veteran righty now sports a 2.75 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 for the season. With a tough start against Boston on deck for Lynn next week, his numbers could take another hit.

Lynn (4-1) pitched six scoreless innings with just four hits and two walks allowed while striking out six batters during Friday's win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn has now won four consecutive starts with just two runs allowed and 22 strikeouts over 25 innings to improve to a 2.04 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 7.9 K/9 for the season. His 4.12 FIP suggests he's probably currently overachieving, but his track record before Tommy John surgery shouldn't be overlooked, as he posted a 2.84 ERA over 64 starts during the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Lynn will look to make it five wins a row against the Marlins next week.
