St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn is working on a consistent delivery to fit his body type after he lost weight in the offseason. Lynn's slimmer physique has given him more flexibility in his windup, and the results have been inconsistent as he tries to get used to the movements of his lighter look. The timing of his stride is off with where he releases the ball, and that has changed the control of several pitches, including his breaking pitch, which he has struggled to land for a strike. Lynn said during lengthy innings last year he would reach a point of exhaustion and mistakes would follow.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn reported to spring camp this year looking much leaner than before. Lynn rethought his diet, maintained his strength and shed some weight this offseason. He said he is reporting 15 to 20 pounds lighter than he was last season. "I'm lighter now than I was when I graduated high school," said Lynn, 25. He said that the innings buildup and the weight on his frame wore him down late last season. Lynn has already thrown three times off a mound since Feb. 1, and he'll throw another bullpen Monday, Feb. 11.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn used better eating and workout habits to shed 40 pounds in the offseason. Lynn did this following the wear and tear he noticed on his body. "At the end of last year I felt some aches and pains that might have been due to the fatigue as the year went on and, candidly, to the excess weight you shouldn't be carrying," Lynn said.
