#Cardinals mgr Matheny says team is "on track" when it comes to who will start Friday vs. #Rangers ...
"We’re right on track," Matheny said about who starts Friday, implying that rookie Tyler Lyons will continue to hold the fifth spot in the rotation. "Right now that’s definitely where we’re going. We want him (Lyons) just thinking about his next start and not about all this other stuff. ... I think it’s his execution of pitches more so than anybody coming in with a better plan. He’s had a different plan almost every time out there. We’ve seen drastically different approaches that he’s had to using his stuff. I don’t think it’s that as much as a couple mistakes here or there I think he’s realizing hurt you here more than they do in the minor leagues. Guys don’t miss mistakes in the middle of the plate when you’re in hitters counts.
"We see him continuing to give us a good opportunity," Matheny concluded. "We’re just going to have to keep working."
