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. Jul 13 - 1:52 PM

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.

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.
May 24 - 12:02 AM

Jordan Lyles was rocked for six earned runs in 3 1/3 innings Saturday as the Rockies fell to the Padres.

Lyles was due for a clunker after opening the season 5-0, and the Padres handed it to him on Saturday night at Coors Field. Lyles surrendered five hits and walked six, watching his ERA jump from 2.66 to 3.50 and his WHIP go from 1.09 to 1.22. Expect the regression to continue.
May 17 - 11:54 PM

Jordan Lyles moved to 5-0 after limiting the Reds to two runs in six innings on Saturday.

Lyles got 11 runs of support from his offense and struck out a season-high eight batters as the Rockies won their 23rd game of the year. The young right-hander has an impressive 2.66 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 50 2/3 innings this season and warrants a roster spot in mixed fantasy leagues for as long as he can keep it up. Lyles had issues with mid-season fading in Houston.
May 10 - 10:27 PM

Jordan Lyles moved to 4-0 after holding the Rangers to two runs over eight innings on Monday.

Lyles' strikeout rate is awful, but he's getting more grounders than ever before and he has a 2.62 ERA after seven starts. We're still not buying it -- he's not going to keep stranding runners or preventing homers at this rate -- but he's been a big reason the Rockies have been one of the league's most pleasant surprises thus far.
May 6 - 12:42 AM

Jordan Lyles starred in Wednesday night's no-decision against the Diamondbacks, hurling six innings of one-run ball and hitting a home run in a 5-4 loss.

This defeat isn't on Lyles, as he left with a 4-1 lead that the bullpen punted. The right-hander allowed three hits and two walks, striking out only one. His leadoff third-inning homer off Josh Collmenter put the Rockies up 3-0, a lead that held until Rex Brothers imploded in the ninth while LaTroy Hawkins got the night off due to recent usage. Lyles has impressed over his first month in black and purple, going 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. He's enjoyed his return to NL play as well, slashing .286/.333/.571 in a handful of at-bats. We're curious to see if he can continue keeping opponents off the scoreboard in hitter's parks while only striking out 19 over 36 2/3 innings. Lyles will be familiar with next week's foe Texas, with the Rangers traveling to Denver.
May 1 - 1:06 AM

Jordan Lyles surrendered two runs and six hits over seven innings against the Dodgers on Friday.

Lyles is pretty well entrenched in the rotation now after amassing a 2.93 ERA in his first five starts. We're still pretty skeptical; he's getting more grounders with his sinker, but his strikeout rate is worse than ever and more hits are sure to come in time. Fantasy leaguers should continue to shy away.
Apr 26 - 2:29 AM

Jordan Lyles limited the Phillies to one (unearned) run in seven innings Saturday in the Rockies' 3-1 win.

Lyles was sharp, scattering five hits and a walk over his seven innings. He struck out just two batters and owns an underwhelming 14/6 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings this season, but the other stats have been great. The 23-year-old will carry a 3-0 start, 3.04 ERA, and 1.14 WHIP into his next scheduled outing on the road against the Dodgers.
Apr 19 - 11:12 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that Jordan Lyles will remain in the rotation and make his next start on Monday against the Padres in San Diego.

That means Franklin Morales will be shifted to the bullpen with the impending return of Tyler Chatwood. While Lyles pitched well in his lone outing, he's unlikely to have much value in mixed leagues while pitching in Colorado.
Apr 11 - 8:46 PM

Troy Renck of the Denver Post believes that Jordan Lyles is likely to keep his spot in the rotation when Tyler Chatwood (hamstring) returns from the disabled list Sunday.

Renck notes that no decision has been made between Lyles and Franklin Morales, but Lyles is "in (a) good spot." The young right-hander was given a rotation spot only when Chatwood went down, but he's earned the right to keep the job after 6 2/3 frames of one-run ball Monday. Morales has fumbled his opportunity, posting a 6.94 ERA over his first two starts. He would move into the Rockies' bullpen.
Apr 9 - 1:40 PM

Jordan Lyles was the star of Monday night's victory over the White Sox, hurling 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in a 7-1 victory.

He allowed five hits and two walks while striking out four, mixing speeds effectively and keeping White Sox hitters off balance all evening. Lyles didn't just impress on the mound, going 3-for-3 with a double and two RBI at the dish. Including a walk he drew in his Rockies' debut, Lyles is now batting .600/.667/.800 over six trips to the plate. Obviously his work on the rubber is far more pressing, and Lyles has acquitted himself well in that department over his first two starts, going 2-0 with a 3.86 ERA. So far, so good for Colorado's biggest return from the Dexter Fowler trade. He's got a good matchup on deck next week in San Diego.
