• Manager Mike Matheny announced that Lance Lynn will start on Wednesday when the Cardinals travel to Port St. Lucie, Fla., to face the Mets. Lynn, who is about 40 pounds lighter than he was last October, has a hold on the fourth spot in the team's rotation.
• Shelby Miller is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Monday, three days after he returned to the mound for the first time after being briefly slowed by shoulder soreness. If all goes well for the righty, Miller will likely make his first Grapefruit League appearance later in the week.
• Prior to the start of Sunday's home spring opener, the Cardinals observed a moment of silence for Stan Musial. Musial died on Jan. 20 at the age of 92. The Cardinals will wear a Musial patch on their jerseys during the regular season.
