Lynn on being Carpenter's backup: 'Ready to go'

Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn said he will be ready to enter the regular season as a starter if Chris Carpenter remains injured.

"Hopefully it doesn't come to that, but if it does I'll be ready to go," Lynn said.

The right-hander threw as a reliever last season, but said he had plenty of starter experience in the minor leagues.

"My whole life I've been a starter so it won't be that big of a deal," Lynn said. "The reliever thing was something I got to do last year, and I enjoyed it. I just wanna pitch whenever they need me to and do what I need to do to help the team win."
