Jordan Lyles was touched up for four runs over three innings on Tuesday against the Cubs.
Facing a split-squad lineup but one containing a handful of starters, Lyles served up a home run to Willson Contreras among his five hits allowed and also walked two batters. Lyles' first start this spring was a good one but he's been awful since, likely pitching his way out of consideration for a rotation spot. Mar 13 - 6:11 PM

Jordan Lyles was shelled on Thursday against the Cubs, allowing five runs in one inning of work in his third start of the Cactus League.

Lyles just didn't have it against Chicago on Thursday, giving up six hits in the one inning of work. The 27-year-old right-hander is being given a chance to win a spot in the rotation, and pitched relatively effectively in his first two outings with the Padres. This will not be the start that wins him a spot as a starter, however, and he'll need to bounce back next week if he's going to make the roster, much less the rotation.

Jordan Lyles pitched decently in Saturday's victory over the Athletics, allowing two runs on two hits over his two frames.

Lyles walked one and struck out one. All of the damage against him came on one mighty swing off the bat of Stephen Piscotty in the second inning. The 27-year-old is being stretched out as a starter this spring and has a chance to secure a spot in the Opening Day rotation with a strong showing in Arizona.
Mar 3 - 8:03 PM

Jordan Lyles allowed three hits and a walk over two scoreless innings Monday in his Cactus League debut against the Angels.

Lyles had the honor of facing Shohei Ohtani in his first North American plate appearance and walked him after going ahead 0-2. The 27-year-old right-hander is being stretched out as a starter this spring at Padres camp, but he figures to end up in long relief. He had a brutal 7.75 ERA in 69 2/3 innings last season between Colorado and San Diego.
Feb 26 - 5:25 PM

Padres re-signed RHP Jordan Lyles to a one-year, $750,000 contract.

The 27-year-old hurler posted a 7.75 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 55/22 K/BB ratio over 69 2/3 innings between the Rockies and Padres in 2017. He'll provide another rotation option for the Padres.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Sep 3, 2017 02:00:00 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.

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.
Fri, Sep 1, 2017 05:57:00 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.

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.

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.
