Originally scheduled to start against the Twins Thursday, Carlos Rodon has been pushed back to Saturday due to tightness in his right hamstring.

Lance Lynn starts in Rodon's place.

 

"It was more just to make sure that his leg, and his back was a little tight, things that crop up," manager Tony La Russa said. "Just don't want to push it unless you have to, and we didn't have to."

Rodon is one of baseball's biggest surprises this season with a 5-0 record and 0.58 ERA. The 28-year-old lefty pitched a no-hitter vs. the Indians on April 14.
