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.

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.

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.

Jordan Lyles surrendered six runs -- four earned -- over just 2 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Pirates.

It was a messy afternoon for Lyles and the Rockies, who lost the final two games of the three-game set (this game was originally scheduled for Sunday). Lyles walked three and gave up six hits, falling to 1-2 on the year. He has an 8.55 ERA in five starts this season.

Rockies recalled RHP Jordan Lyles from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Lyles was booted from the rotation last month after posting a 7.64 ERA over four starts. It appears that he'll work in long relief for now.

Rockies optioned RHP Jordan Lyles to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Lyles was knocked around for five runs over 2 2/3 innings against the Dodgers on Sunday, giving him a 7.64 ERA for the year. He'll try to get things back on track in the minors while Chris Rusin will take his place in the rotation Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Jordan Lyles was hit hard in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, giving up five runs on five hits in just 2 2/3 innings of work.

Lyles struggled badly with his command, issuing five walks and failing to record a strikeout on his abbreviated afternoon. The Dodgers struck quick, pushing four runs across the plate in the first inning and never looked back. While Coors Field can be partially to blame for his struggles, Lyles owns a disappointing 7.64 ERA and 1.87 WHIP over 17 2/3 innings in his first four starts. He'll hope for better results when he takes on the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Friday.

Jordan Lyles spun an unexpected gem Monday, allowing just one unearned run over seven frames in a 5-1 victory over the Reds.

Lyles yielded just four hits, walked one and struck out four. He threw only 76 pitches through his seven innings, but the Rockies elected to pinch-hit for him to lead off the eighth. Lyles' outing Monday was easily the best of his three so far, as he lowered his ERA to 6.00. He'll likely fall back to earth this weekend at home against the Dodgers.

Jordan Lyles was rocked in a losing effort against the Padres on Friday afternoon, allowing five runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Lyles punched out four and walked three in the ballgame. He worked his way through the first three innings unscathed, but the Padres offense awoke in the fourth inning, scratching out five runs to chase Lyles from the game. He remains nothing more than a middling fantasy option in mixed leagues and can safely be avoided for Wednesday's matchup against the Giants.

Jordan Lyles held the Mariners to one run over three innings in his final Cactus League start Saturday.

Lyles wasn't terribly efficient, walking three and giving up two hits over his three innings, but he escaped largely unscathed. His 7.11 ERA in Cactus League play isn't terribly promising, nor is the fact that he still pitches roughly half his games in Coors Field. There's no fantasy interest here.
Sat, Apr 2, 2016 06:15:00 PM

Jordan Lyles was smacked around for seven runs across 4 2/3 innings against the White Sox on Monday.

He gave up nine hits -- including a pair of home runs -- on the forgettable day. Lyles is coming off a season where he was limited to just 10 starts because of a toe injury. He'll be part of the Rockies' rotation in 2016 but holds little appeal in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Mar 28, 2016 07:38:00 PM

Jordan Lyles tossed four scoreless innings of relief against the Angels on Friday.

Lyles gave up two hits and walked two while striking out one. The 25-year-old really struggled in his last outing against the Dodgers, so this was nice to see. He’s locked into a rotation spot with the Rockies to begin the year, but fantasy value figures to be elusive in this situation.
