Jordan Lyles surrendered seven runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Giants.
Lyles, a reliever for the Rockies in the first half of the year, ended up 1-3 with a 9.39 ERA in five starts for the Padres. He'll be dropped from the roster as soon as the season is over, and he should have to settle for a minor league contract this winter. Sep 30 - 2:01 AM

Jordan Lyles allowed seven earned runs, eight hits and three walks over just four innings in a loss at Colorado on Saturday.

Lyles threw just 54 of his 90 pitches for strikes against his former team. In three starts with San Diego has he posted a 1-1 record and 8.78 ERA through 13 1/3 innings. As such, he can be avoided in all fantasy leagues until he starts to show some consistency.
Sep 17 - 12:36 AM

Jordan Lyles was credited with his first win of the year after allowing four runs in five innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Lyles had a worse ERA tonight than he did in his Padres debut last weekend against the Dodgers, but this was undeniably a better outing; he struck out six and walked none tonight after finishing with three strikeouts and four walks (and a 2.31 WHIP) his previous start. Lyles isn't recommended in NL-only leagues.
Sep 9 - 1:31 AM

Padres manager Andy Green said Tuesday that Jordan Lyles will remain in the starting rotation.

San Diego will employ a six-man rotation down the stretch to allow for extra rest for some of their younger starters. Lyles allowed two runs over 4 1/3 innings in the nightcap of a doubleheader Saturday against the Dodgers. It was his first major league start since May 2016.
Sep 5 - 10:27 PM

Making his first major league start since May 2016, Jordan Lyles allowed two runs in 4 1/3 innings against the Dodgers in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

Lyles allowed six hits and walked four, so he was fortunate to escape with so little damage. He's not guaranteed any additional starts.
Sep 3 - 2:00 AM

Padres' manager Andy Green announced Friday that Jordan Lyles will start the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Lyles was among the group of September call-ups for the Padres on Friday. The 26-year-old hurler posted a troublesome 6.94 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 33/12 K/BB ratio across 46 2/3 innings with the Rockies earlier this season.
Sep 1 - 6:35 PM

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Jordan Lyles from Triple-A El Paso.

Lyles was stretched back out as a starter at El Paso after being released by the Rockies and posted a 4.50 ERA and 20/8 K/BB ratio over 20 innings. He should get starts for the Padres this month.
Sep 1 - 5:57 PM

Padres signed RHP Jordan Lyles to a minor league contract.

Lyles elected free agency after being removed from the Rockies' 40-man roster late last month. The 26-year-old has posted a 6.94 ERA this season in his first full year being used exclusively as a reliever. However, it sounds like the Padres will stretch him back out at Triple-A El Paso for rotation depth.
Aug 8 - 10:03 AM

Rockies designated RHP Jordan Lyles for assignment.

The 26-year-old hurler struggled during his time with the Rockies, registering a 6.94 ERA and 6.4 K/9 across 46 2/3 innings. He's still talented enough that there should be another club willing to take a chance on him on waivers.
Jul 29 - 3:08 PM

Jordan Lyles gave up four runs in 1 1/3 innings out of the pen Thursday against the Nationals.

One of the odder decisions of the offseason was the Rockies choosing to pay Lyles $3.175 million in arbitration rather than just non-tender him. Had they went that route, they might have been able to bring him back on a minor league deal anyway. Lyles is sporting a 9.28 ERA through 10 2/3 innings out of the pen.
Apr 27 - 6:49 PM

Jordan Lyles was hammered for five earned runs in the fifth inning of Tuesday's Cactus League loss to the Dodgers.

Lyles struck out two of the three batters he faced in his spring debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks, but the wheels fell off for him Tuesday. Andre Ethier and O'Koyea Dickson both homered off Lyles in the top of the fifth and Brett Eibner contributed a two-run double. The 26-year-old right-hander will probably open the 2017 regular season in long relief.
Feb 28 - 7:03 PM

Rockies and RHP Jordan Lyles avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.175 million contract.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reported the terms involved. Lyles earned $2.975 million this past season while posting a 5.83 ERA and 32/28 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings, mostly in a relief role. Despite the rough year, the Rockies resisted non-tendering him and gave him a slight raise in the process. He was arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter.

Jordan Lyles pitched the last three innings of the Rockies victory to earn his first save of the season on Saturday.

It was the second save of his career, the first coming way back in 2013. The Rockies' closer situation is muddy right now but Lyles is clearly not in the running. Lyles got this save because the Rockies left their long man in to finish out the last three innings of a blowout. Lyles gave up one run and lowered his heinous ERA to 6.98 in 29 2/3 innings.

Rockies recalled RHP Jordan Lyles from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Lyles will join the Colorado bullpen on Monday night. He has an 8.55 ERA, 2.05 WHIP, and 12/14 K/BB ratio in 20 innings (five starts) this season for the Rockies.
Mon, Jun 20, 2016 03:26:00 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Jordan Lyles to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Lyles was lit up for six runs -- four earned -- over just 2 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Pirates, watching his season ERA rise to 8.55. It might be a while before the right-hander gets another look. Jorge De La Rosa (groin) was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
