On Sunday’s game against the Marlins Lance Lynn left the game due to a left hip flexor pain. Then on top of that he may have a blister on his right hand.
If this turns out to be a severe strain, the Cardinals can turn to either Jaime Garcia or Marco Gonzales for some April rotation turns. That presumes Carlos Martinez is already locked into a spot.
Lynn, 27, posted an excellent 2.74 ERA with 181 strikeouts in 203 2/3 innings last season.
