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.
Mar 29 - 10:31 PM

Jordan Lyles delivered another strong performance in Tuesday's Cactus League victory over the White Sox, allowing four runs (zero earned) on two hits over four frames.

Lyles walked a pair and struck out one. He now owns a terrific 0.60 ERA and 9/6 K/BB ratio across 15 innings in spring play. He'll work near the front of the Rockies rotation in 2015, though his fantasy value is limited to NL-only and deep mixed leagues due to his home park and his limited strikeout ability.
Mar 24 - 8:40 PM

Jordan Lyles held the Royals hitless over four innings in Thursday's Cactus League start.

Lyles struck out two on the afternoon. The young right-hander has had great results this spring, sporting a 0.82 ERA with an 8/4 K/BB ratio in 11 innings. Lyles had the best season of his career in 2014, finishing with a 4.33 ERA and hopes to take another step forward in 2015. His mediocre strikeout rate and pitching half his games in Coors Field limits his fantasy value, though.
Mar 19 - 7:18 PM

Jordan Lyles fired three scoreless innings versus the Reds on Saturday.

Lyles limited the Reds to one hit while walking two and striking out three. In three Cactus League starts thus far, the right-hander has allowed only one earned run in seven innings. Lyles, who posted a 4.33 ERA in 22 starts last season, will slot behind Kyle Kendrick in the Rockies' rotation going into the season.
Mar 14 - 7:21 PM

Jordan Lyles allowed two runs -- one earned -- across two innings in Monday's Cactus League tie versus the Reds.

Facing a split-squad Reds lineup, Lyles yielded two hits, walked one and struck out one. The righty missed two months last season with a broken hand but was solid for the Rockies when healthy with a 4.33 ERA over 22 starts. Colorado will again be counting on the 24-year-old as part of their rotation in 2015.
Mar 9 - 8:10 PM

Jordan Lyles struck out two over two scoreless innings in his Cactus League debut against the Diamondbacks Wednesday.

Lyles didn't allow a hit while walking one in his first start of the spring. He also hit a batter in the outing. Lyles had his moments last year en route to a 4.33 ERA over 126 2/3 innings of work, and he's a surefire member of the rotation this season. Unfortunately for him, Lyles still pitches in Colorado, marginalizing any fantasy value he might have had.
Mar 4 - 6:28 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Sunday that Jordan Lyles will start Wednesday's Cactus League opener against the Diamondbacks.

The 24-year-old is locked into the Rockies rotation after posting a 4.33 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 90/46 K/BB ratio in 126 2/3 innings a season ago. Jhoulys Chacin will follow and pitch on Thursday, with Kyle Kendrick taking on the Angels on Friday and Jorge De La Rosa battling the Cubs on Saturday.
Mar 1 - 7:41 PM

Rockies and RHP Jordan Lyles avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.475 million contract.

Jon Heyman reported the details of the deal on Twitter. Lyles posted a 4.33 ERA in 22 starts this past season. The former first-round pick of the Astros is still just 24 years old and has shown some upside when healthy. He'll be in the Rockies' rotation to start the year.
Jan 14 - 6:56 PM

Jordan Lyles lost to the Dodgers on Friday, giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Lyles was effective more often than not when healthy this year, but it doesn't really show up in his season-ending 4.33 ERA. He struck out 90 and walked 46 in 126 2/3 innings over 22 starts. It should be good enough to pretty much guarantee him a spot in the Rockies' rotation next year, but he'll remain a rather poor bet for fantasy purposes.

Jordan Lyles picked up his seventh victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Diamondbacks to two runs on nine hits over his six innings of work.

Lyles struck out just one opposing hitter and didn't issue a walk on the night. While he was far from dominant, he was able to keep the D'Backs hitters off-balance and prevent them from mounting any serious scoring threats. He will carry a 4.15 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into his season finale against the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday.
Sat, Sep 20, 2014 12:12:00 AM

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.
Sun, Sep 14, 2014 07:07:00 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.
