A Brief History of Cardinal Drafts in the 21st Century, Part Four: Luhnow’s Last Ride

A Brief History of Cardinal Drafts in the 21st Century, Part Four: Luhnow’s Last Ride

Today, Jeff Luhnow tries to follow up an all-time great draft class, and comes pretty close to succeeding. Last time, we examined the first two drafts of four that Jeff Luhnow conducted as head of drafting and development under John Mozeliak. The 2008 draft produced Lance Lynn, but was most notable for gaining the Cardinals most of the package they would deal in July of 2009 to acquire Matt Holliday. Then came the historic 2009 draft, when the Redbirds nabbed players such as Matt Carpenter, Trevor Rosenthal, and Matt Adams in the later rounds, and often from off the beaten path. Rosie and...

St. Louis Cardinals: Lance Lynn Faces Tall Tasks in Return from Tommy John Surgery

The St. Louis Cardinals have had five pitchers miss time to Tommy John surgery over the past decade, but one of these hurlers is likely to crack the 2017 starting rotation. St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn, who underwent Tommy John surgery in November 2015, has been a pleasant surprise early into Spring Training. In three spring starts, […] St. Louis Cardinals: Lance Lynn Faces Tall Tasks in Return from Tommy John Surgery - Redbird Rants - Redbird Rants - A St. Louis Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

2017 VEB Community Projections: Lance Lynn

After missing 2016, Lance Lynn is back. Lance Lynn is one of the few players VEB didn’t do a projection for last season. After slowing down in the second half of 2015 and pitching through what turned out to be a fairly serious injury, Lynn had Tommy John surgery at the start of the 2015 offseason. Lynn has since made a full recovery, even appearing in a few minor league games at the end of last season. That should mitigate some concerns regarding rust given Lynn is now nearly a year and a half post-surgery. On August 1, 2015, Lynn had a 2.71 ERA and 2.81 FIP (73 FIP-), essentially...

Let’s take a look back at Monday’s stories: Is Stephen Piscotty a clean-up hitter? — Alex Crisafulli crafted an insightful story that compares Cardinals right-fielder Stephen Piscotty — who is projected to hit in the clean-up spot— to other four-hole hitters around the league. On spring training repertoire developments — Joe Schwarz, as usual, intellectually analyzed the developments of Adam Wainwright and Luke Weaver’s pitch arsenals and what they will mean going forward.
