Player Notes
According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals and Lance Lynn have expressed mutual interest in discussing a contract extension.

Advice: Lynn will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is coming off a career year which saw him register a 2.74 ERA and 181 strikeouts across 203 2/3 innings. It's risky to commit long term to any pitcher, but the Cards have money to spend and Lynn's price will only rise through arbitration if he continues on his current career trajectory. The 27-year-old has become a legitimate No. 2 starter.

Lance Lynn pitched well in a no-decision against the Giants in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday, allowing two runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings of work.

Advice: The hard-throwing right-hander struck out three and walked one in the ballgame. He cruised through the first four innings virtually unscathed, until Joaquin Arias got the Giants on the board with an RBI ground out in the fifth. They added an additional run on an RBI single by Hunter Pence in the sixth inning to even the score and complete the damage against him. The Cardinals will hand the ball to John Lackey in Game 3 as they look to take an advantage in the best-of-seven series.
