Jordan Lyles struck out two over two scoreless innings in his Cactus League debut against the Diamondbacks Wednesday.
Lyles didn't allow a hit while walking one in his first start of the spring. He also hit a batter in the outing. Lyles had his moments last year en route to a 4.33 ERA over 126 2/3 innings of work, and he's a surefire member of the rotation this season. Unfortunately for him, Lyles still pitches in Colorado, marginalizing any fantasy value he might have had. Mar 4 - 6:28 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Sunday that Jordan Lyles will start Wednesday's Cactus League opener against the Diamondbacks.

The 24-year-old is locked into the Rockies rotation after posting a 4.33 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 90/46 K/BB ratio in 126 2/3 innings a season ago. Jhoulys Chacin will follow and pitch on Thursday, with Kyle Kendrick taking on the Angels on Friday and Jorge De La Rosa battling the Cubs on Saturday.
Mar 1 - 7:41 PM

Rockies and RHP Jordan Lyles avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.475 million contract.

Jon Heyman reported the details of the deal on Twitter. Lyles posted a 4.33 ERA in 22 starts this past season. The former first-round pick of the Astros is still just 24 years old and has shown some upside when healthy. He'll be in the Rockies' rotation to start the year.
Jan 14 - 6:56 PM

Jordan Lyles lost to the Dodgers on Friday, giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Lyles was effective more often than not when healthy this year, but it doesn't really show up in his season-ending 4.33 ERA. He struck out 90 and walked 46 in 126 2/3 innings over 22 starts. It should be good enough to pretty much guarantee him a spot in the Rockies' rotation next year, but he'll remain a rather poor bet for fantasy purposes.

Jordan Lyles picked up his seventh victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Diamondbacks to two runs on nine hits over his six innings of work.

Lyles struck out just one opposing hitter and didn't issue a walk on the night. While he was far from dominant, he was able to keep the D'Backs hitters off-balance and prevent them from mounting any serious scoring threats. He will carry a 4.15 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into his season finale against the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday.

Jordan Lyles allowed three runs on nine hits over six innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Lyles gave up nine hits, but it was back-to-back knocks -- a Matt Holliday double followed by a Jhonny Peralta homer -- that did all the damage. Lyles took the loss despite the quality start, falling to 6-3. He'll take a 4.21 ERA into Friday's contest against the Diamondbacks.

Jordan Lyles struggled but got a no-decision after allowing five runs in five innings in the Rockies' walk-off win in the first game of Sunday's double-header against the Reds.

Lyles was humming along with three scoreless innings, but the Reds brought on the offense in the middle innings. The right-hander surrendered five hits -- including a two-run home run to Jay Bruce -- while walking two and striking out four. Lyles now has a 4.01 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a 62/32 K/BB ratio. He'll match up against the Marlins at home next Sunday.

Saturday's game between the Reds and Rockies has been postponed due to a water main break.

The water main break flooded the street outside Coors Field and shut down all of the stadium's plumbing. The issue should be solved by Sunday afternoon, and the two teams have scheduled a makeup doubleheader. Jordan Lyles was scheduled to pitch for the Rockies and Dylan Axelrod was to take the mound for the visiting Reds.

Jordan Lyles yielded two runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Padres.

Lyles struck out four and walked three as Colorado fell to an MLB-worst 18-42 on the road. He entered this evening 2-0 with a 3.60 ERA in seven starts on the road. That isn't much of a surprise. What has been a pleasant revelation is the 23-year-old right-hander's success in Coors Field, where he's 4-1 with a 3.86 ERA. Lyles hosts Cincinnati this weekend.

Jordan Lyles gave up four earned runs in six innings but got the win Wednesday night against the Cubs.

Lyles didn't pitch terribly, allowing just six hits and a walk while striking out five, and the Colorado offense exploded in support of him for 13 runs on 16 hits. It was Lyles' first start since suffering a fractured left finger in early June, so some rust was to be expected. He should do a better job of limiting the damage next time out in San Diego.

Rockies activated RHP Jordan Lyles from the 15-day disabled list.

Lyles will return to the Rockies' starting rotation on Wednesday night against the Cubs after missing two months with a fractured metacarpal in his left (non-throwing) hand. The young right-hander had a strong 3.52 ERA over his first 12 starts this season and could be a decent fantasy streamer for the stretch run.

Jordan Lyles (hand) will be activated for a Wednesday start against the Cubs.

It's a nice matchup in his return. Lyles has been out since early June with a fractured middle metacarpal on his left hand. He's been looking good during his rehab assignment, hurling 8 1/3 scoreless frames during two starts. The righty surprised with a 3.52 ERA in his first 11 starts.

Jordan Lyles (hand) struck out four over 4 2/3 scoreless inning in his second rehab start for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday.

All told, Lyles has now spun 8 1/3 scoreless frames during his two rehab outings. The Rockies haven't officially announced anything, but the right-hander could rejoin the rotation as soon as Monday, the first day he's eligible to be activated. Lyles has been out since early June with a fractured middle metacarpal on his left hand.

Jordan Lyles (hand) is on pace to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on August 4.

"He'll certainly be close, if not ready to go, at that point," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Lyles threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Modesto on Saturday. The righty surprised with a 3.52 ERA in his first 11 starts before breaking the middle metacarpal on his left hand in early June.
Tue, Jul 22, 2014 11:46:00 PM

Rockies transferred RHP Jordan Lyles from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Tests showed that the fracture of the middle metacarpal on Lyles' left hand hasn't healed yet. The righty was also involved in a car accident Friday, though that's not the reason his return is being delayed. "It was a minor accident, but he doesn't look real pretty," manager Walt Weiss said. Lyles won't be eligible to return until early August and it's not clear whether he'll even be ready at that time.
