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. Sep 14 - 7:07 PM

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.
Aug 17 - 8:43 PM

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.
Aug 16 - 8:45 PM

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.
Aug 12 - 1:32 AM

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.
Aug 6 - 11:41 PM

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.
Aug 6 - 5:52 PM

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.
Aug 2 - 6:42 PM

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.
Aug 1 - 12:35 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 11:46 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.

Jordan Lyles will not need surgery but is still expected to be sidelined for a while due to a fracture of the middle metacarpal on his left hand.

Lyles will wear a cast or a hard splint on his hand once the swelling goes down. "He's going to be out for a few weeks, but we don't know exactly how long that is right now," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "But it's one of those things where he'll have to be re-evaluated every week or so. And go from there."

Rockies placed RHP Jordan Lyles on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand.

Lyles suffered the injury during a home plate collision with the Diamondbacks' Martin Prado during his start on Wednesday night. The good news is that it was his glove hand, but it's unclear how much time he'll need to miss.
Jun 5 - 5:14 PM

Jordan Lyles, a right-handed pitcher, was diagnosed late Wednesday with a broken left hand.

Lyles suffered the injury to his glove hand on a home-plate collision with the Diamondbacks' Martin Prado in the first inning of his start Wednesday night at Coors Field. He stayed in for four total frames, but X-rays were taken after the game and revealed the broken bone above the knuckle of his left middle finger. Lyles will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday. It's not yet clear how long he might be out.

Jun 5 - 2:17 AM

Jordan Lyles got the no-decision, allowing two runs over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Lyles worked around some spotty command, limiting the damage against the Phillies. Overall, the right-hander allowed five hits, walked four, and struck out five. Lyles has a 3.46 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 46/25 K/BB ratio in 65 innings. Considering his track record and his home ballpark, though, he's still a risky play in mixed leagues. Lyles will chase his sixth win in his next start against the Diamondbacks at home.
May 28 - 11:23 PM

Jordan Lyles yielded two runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Lyles gave up six runs and walked a career-high eight batters in his last outing, but he bounced back nicely in this one. The 23-year-old allowed six hits and one walk while striking out six batters. He has delivered seven quality starts in his 10 outings this season to go along with a 3.45 ERA and 41/21 K/BB ratio in 60 innings. He's been a solid addition for the Rockies.
