|Cardinals Look to Lynn as Carpenter Heals
|JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Lance Lynn may be the St. Louis Cardinals' ''Plan B'' if former Cy Young award winner Chris Carpenter isn't ready for the season.
Expected to be a member of the bullpen at the start of camp, the Cardinals will look at Lynn as a possible starter in case Carpenter is unable to recover from a bulging disc in his neck.
A 24-year-old year old right-hander, Lynn will make his first start of the spring on Wednesday against Houston. The Cardinals are also considering rookie Shelby Miller, a former No. 1 pick.
