This afternoon Jennifer Langosch tweeted…..
Lance Lynn begins rehab assignmet today. #stlcards will monitor progress over next few weeks to see if there’s a chance he returns in ’16.
This is awesome news! Lynn last pitched in the majors in 2015, making at least 29 starts for the fourth consecutive season for the Cardinals. An All-Star in 2012, he has averaged 15 wins and posted a 3.37 ERA over the course of being with the Cardinals all of his career.
Lynn is signed through just 2017, Lynn is on the books for $7.5 million next season, a team-friendly price if he is able to return to the form he had established prior to his injury. If he is able to return soon Lance would be able to help the Cardinals creep into the playoffs
