Jordan Lyles (toe) has been cleared to start on Sunday versus the Phillies.
Lyles had a start pushed back due a sprain in his left big toe, but he's already feeling much better. The right-hander sports an ugly 5.10 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 28/19 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings this season for the Rockies. May 27 - 10:30 AM

Jordan Lyles' next start has been pushed back to due a sprain in his left big toe.

But the right-hander is fully expected to avoid the disabled list. Lyles owns a 5.10 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 28/19 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season for the Rockies and shouldn't be trusted in any fantasy league.

Jordan Lyles could miss his next start due to a sprained big toe on his left foot.

He is scheduled to work on Friday against the Phillies in Philadelphia, but he'll have to improve significantly from where he is now and throw a successful side session during the week before he's cleared to make that start. More should be known on his status later in the week, but he probably isn't worth the gamble in weekly leagues.

Jordan Lyles pitched ineffectively in Saturday's loss to the Giants, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits over four innings before leaving with a toe injury.

Following a long, long rain delay, Lyles held the Giants without a hit through the first three innings. The good times wouldn't last. After inducing a double play grounder from Angel Pagan in the fourth inning, Lyles proceeded to give up four straight singles yielding three runs. He then loaded the bases to start the fifth before taking the long walk to the dugout. Yohan Flande entered the game and went on to allow all three of the inherited runners to score. With the disappointing start, Lyles' ERA peaked up to 5.10 to match with an equally lackluster 1.49 WHIP and 28/19 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. He'll hit the road against the Phillies in his next start.

Jordan Lyles left Saturday's game with a sprained toe on his left foot.

Lyles got roughed up in his four innings of work, allowing seven hits and six runs (five earned). The right-hander hasn't been much help lately, going 0-3 with a 7.43 ERA over his last five starts. Yohan Flande came in for Lyles to start the fifth inning.
May 23 - 8:52 PM

Jordan Lyles took the loss against the Phillies on Monday after yielding four runs in six innings.

Lyles held the Phillies to one run over his first five innings, but faltered in the sixth in a three-run frame. He gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. It was a solid performance considering he was hit on the hand in his previous start against the Angels. Lyles has a 4.53 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a 24/19 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. He'll match up against the Giants at home next.

Jordan Lyles suffered a hand contusion on Wednesday against the Angels.

Not many men are thrilled to hear they have a hand contusion, but you can count Lyles amongst the ranks after X-rays on his right hand surprisingly revealed no fractures. Lyles' pitching hand was on the receiving end of an Albert Pujols liner in the second inning. You can imagine. The hand swelled up immediately and he was replaced by Christian Bergman. Fortunately, Lyles avoided serious injury. Keep an eye on his status, but it appears as though Lyles is going to avoid a date with the disabled list.

Jordan Lyles left Wednesday's game against the Angels after being hit in the right hand by a comebacker.

Lyles took an Albert Pujols shot off his pitching hand, and it swelled up in between innings. He was replaced by Christain Bergman in the second inning. The Rockies should update his status after the game, if not sooner.
May 13 - 10:31 PM

Jordan Lyles lost the second game of Wednesday's double-header, allowing the Diamondbacks to score four times in seven innings as the Rockies went on to lose 5-1.

Lyles was effective through four innings, allowing only one run, but the Diamondbacks got to him in the fifth to plate three runs. David Peralta knocked in a pair of runs with a double, and Paul Goldschmidt followed up with an RBI single to score Peralta. Overall, he gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out six. Lyles has had middling results through six starts so far, sporting a 4.42 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a 21/17 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings. He'll face the Angels on the road in his next outing.
May 6 - 10:08 PM

Jordan Lyles was detonated for seven runs (six earned) over five innings in a blowout loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Lyles came into the game 2-1 with a 2.92 ERA, but we warned you that he was pitching way over his head due in part to a 14/11 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. The wheels came off and the axis gave way Wednesday, as Lyles walked five batters. He now sports a 4.25 ERA, but that too is wholly unsustainable if he can't turn around the grisly 1.52 WHIP and 15/16 K/BB ratio. Steer clear outside of Frank Ocean-deep formats until the 24-year-old shows signs of progress.
Apr 30 - 12:18 AM

Jordan Lyles earned his second win of the season, holding the Padres to one run over 6 2/3 innings on Thursday.

Lyles allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out four in the sterling effort. Yonder Alonso was the only batter to do damage against the right-hander, knocking in a run with a single in the fourth. Despite a propensity for the walk and a lackluster ability to miss bats, Lyles has had a successful start to the season, sporting a 2.92 ERA. However, his 14/11 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings is concerning. Combined with his home ballpark, he's a risky play going forward. He'll toe the rubber in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next.
Apr 23 - 6:13 PM

Jordan Lyles surrendered five runs (three earned) over six innings against the Cubs on Sunday.

It was a hit-and-miss outing for Lyles, who struck out three and walked three in the contest. He was somewhat undone by his defense in the fifth inning, when the Rockies committed two errors, but it didn't help that Lyles gave up an RBI single to Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks. Lyles posted a 4.33 ERA in 2014 and at just 24 years old, he's a solid young asset for the Rockies. He'll face off with the Padres next.
Apr 12 - 8:43 PM

Jordan Lyles held the Brewers to two runs over six innings Tuesday to pick up his first win of the season.

It was a quality start for the right-hander, as he allowed five hits and a walk while striking out two. Lyles had some good moments for the Rockies in 2014, owning a 4.33 ERA and 7-4 record over 22 starts, and he should once again be serviceable for them in 2015. The 24-year-old will try to keep rolling when the Rockies visit the Giants Monday.
Apr 7 - 11:31 PM

Jordan Lyles was knocked around by the Mariners in his final Cactus League start Friday, surrendering three runs on two hits over 1 1/3 innings.

Lyles struggled with his command throughout the shot outing, issuing three free passes while striking out one. Even with the rough start, he still boasts a terrific 2.01 ERA and 14/10 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings in the spring. He could be a useful option in deeper mixed leagues when skimming his road starts and avoiding Coors Field.
Apr 4 - 1:18 AM

Jordan Lyles excelled again in Sunday's Cactus League victory over the Diamondbacks, surrendering just one run on three hits over six innings.

The 24-year-old right-hander fanned four while issuing just one free pass. He has been electric all spring, registering a 0.86 ERA and 13/7 K/BB ratio over 21 innings. While his upside is capped by pitching half of his games at Coors Field, he could be worth a look in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.
