Lance Lynn goes back to St. Louis to undergo MRI exam on injured forearm


Lance Lynn and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny both downplayed the seriousness of his forearm soreness following Sunday’s game, but the right-hander has traveled back to St. Louis to undergo an MRI exam.

General manager John Mozeliak told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch that the team won’t address Lynn’s status until Friday and gave no indication whether he’s expected to make his next scheduled start Saturday.

St. Louis has the best record in baseball despite losing ace Adam Wainwright for the season, in part because Lynn has stepped up to become one of the best starters in the league with a 2.83 ERA in 45 starts dating back to last year.
