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.

Lynn (2-1) allowed a single run on just three hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over six innings during Saturday's win over Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers have scored the fifth-most runs in baseball, so this was an impressive outing from Lynn. He has now allowed just one run through 13 innings while striking out 12 batters over his past two starts. He appears to be back in the groove following a 2015 Tommy John surgery and sports an impressive 3.35 ERA and 8.6 K/9 over 132 career starts. He lines up to face the Reds next.

Lynn (1-1) earned his first win of the season Monday with seven scoreless innings against the Pirates, allowing three hits and one walk with five strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Lynn was unimpressive through his first starts but turned in a gem in this one as he allowed just two men past first base. He threw 66 percent of his pitches for strikes, a nice departure from his last start in which he issued free passes, and notched a season high in punchouts. This was an excellent result for Lynn in his third start since returning from Tommy John surgery and he will look to produce a similar result Saturday against the Brewers.

Lynn (0-1) gave up six runs (four earned) on five hits, including three home runs, and four walks while striking out four over five innings in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

He managed to throw just 57 of 101 pitches for strikes, and when Lynn did get the ball into the strike zone he was too often just grooving it right down the heart of the plate. Some ups and downs are to be expected for the 29-year-old as he makes his return from Tommy John surgery, however. He'll look to rebound at home Monday against the Pirates.

Lynn allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four in 5.1 innings but came away with a no-decision in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

It was vintage Lynn, as he needed 98 pitches to get 16 outs but mostly held the opposition in check. The 29-year-old was still in line for his first big-league win since Sept. 23, 2015 before Brett Cecil coughed up four runs in the seventh inning. All in all it was an impressive return from Tommy John surgery for Lynn, but he'll get another tough test Tuesday in Washington.

Lynn will start Thursday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

A rainout pushed both Lynn and opposing pitcher John Lackey back one day. The 29-year-old right-hander will be making his first major-league start since October of 2015, marking his official return from Tommy John surgery.

Lynn (ribs) will not start Wednesday as the game against the Cubs has been postponed until Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

There's no official word on who the starters will be, but it's likely that Lynn's season debut will simply be moved back to Thursday. The veteran right-hander will be making his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2015. He posted strong numbers over five starts this spring, compiling a 1.20 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP over 15 total innings.
