    9/28/15: Lance Lynn throws five scoreless innings, allowing only four hits and striking out six, while also stranding seven runners
    By Andrew Simon / MLB.com | 4:49 PM ET
    Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Tuesday in St. Louis and is expected to miss the entire 2016 season.

    In addition to having his ulnar collateral ligament repaired, Lynn also had his ulnar nerve transposed and bone chips removed. The club had not previously divulged that Lynn needed the surgery.

    The 28-year-old right-hander made 31 starts for the Cardinals this season, going 12-11 with a 3.03 ERA. In 175 1/3 innings, he walked 68 and struck out 167. Lynn's last appearance was in Game 2 of the National League Division Series, when he pitched one inning of relief against the Cubs.

    A first-round pick by St. Louis in the 2008 Draft, Lynn has pitched in 150 games (128 starts) over five seasons with the club, going 61-39 with a 3.37 ERA. He was an NL All-Star in 2012.

    I guess the Cards are going to keep getting hit with injuries... Okay we get the damn point can someone else get the damn injury bug that we have. The Cardinals are losing one of there horses and they must do something to help out the rotation.. I'm not saying go out and get David Price either thou that would be awesome.. I don't want them to go after Lackey either because I mean really how many bullets does he have left and I don't want him for more then one year.

    They could go after someone like Zimmerman or really Price because he is left handed.. If they go and get a pitcher they need one that can throw some innings out there..

    I know the Cardinals have depth when it comes to pitching but they don't need to use the minor league guys right yet.. Gonzales has been hurt most of the year and Lyons was suppose to be a opition out of the pen..

    It's as though TJ surgery is on the resume of nearly every MLB pitcher

    Capn I think you are right and there are only a select few that never do..





    So true bro, plus all the Cards Fans that hate the way he pitched down the stretch have some azz kissing to do. Well they probably won't but something didn't seem right about him.
