Jordan Lyles surrendered six runs -- four earned -- over just 2 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Pirates.

It was a messy afternoon for Lyles and the Rockies, who lost the final two games of the three-game set (this game was originally scheduled for Sunday). Lyles walked three and gave up six hits, falling to 1-2 on the year. He has an 8.55 ERA in five starts this season.
May 23 - 3:59 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Jordan Lyles from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Lyles was booted from the rotation last month after posting a 7.64 ERA over four starts. It appears that he'll work in long relief for now.
May 20 - 4:12 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Jordan Lyles to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Lyles was knocked around for five runs over 2 2/3 innings against the Dodgers on Sunday, giving him a 7.64 ERA for the year. He'll try to get things back on track in the minors while Chris Rusin will take his place in the rotation Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Apr 25 - 5:14 PM

Jordan Lyles was hit hard in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, giving up five runs on five hits in just 2 2/3 innings of work.

Lyles struggled badly with his command, issuing five walks and failing to record a strikeout on his abbreviated afternoon. The Dodgers struck quick, pushing four runs across the plate in the first inning and never looked back. While Coors Field can be partially to blame for his struggles, Lyles owns a disappointing 7.64 ERA and 1.87 WHIP over 17 2/3 innings in his first four starts. He'll hope for better results when he takes on the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Friday.
Apr 24 - 7:59 PM

Jordan Lyles spun an unexpected gem Monday, allowing just one unearned run over seven frames in a 5-1 victory over the Reds.

Lyles yielded just four hits, walked one and struck out four. He threw only 76 pitches through his seven innings, but the Rockies elected to pinch-hit for him to lead off the eighth. Lyles' outing Monday was easily the best of his three so far, as he lowered his ERA to 6.00. He'll likely fall back to earth this weekend at home against the Dodgers.
Apr 18 - 10:09 PM

Jordan Lyles was rocked in a losing effort against the Padres on Friday afternoon, allowing five runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Lyles punched out four and walked three in the ballgame. He worked his way through the first three innings unscathed, but the Padres offense awoke in the fourth inning, scratching out five runs to chase Lyles from the game. He remains nothing more than a middling fantasy option in mixed leagues and can safely be avoided for Wednesday's matchup against the Giants.
Apr 8 - 8:15 PM

Jordan Lyles held the Mariners to one run over three innings in his final Cactus League start Saturday.

Lyles wasn't terribly efficient, walking three and giving up two hits over his three innings, but he escaped largely unscathed. His 7.11 ERA in Cactus League play isn't terribly promising, nor is the fact that he still pitches roughly half his games in Coors Field. There's no fantasy interest here.
Apr 2 - 6:15 PM

Jordan Lyles was smacked around for seven runs across 4 2/3 innings against the White Sox on Monday.

He gave up nine hits -- including a pair of home runs -- on the forgettable day. Lyles is coming off a season where he was limited to just 10 starts because of a toe injury. He'll be part of the Rockies' rotation in 2016 but holds little appeal in fantasy leagues.
Mar 28 - 7:38 PM

Jordan Lyles tossed four scoreless innings of relief against the Angels on Friday.

Lyles gave up two hits and walked two while striking out one. The 25-year-old really struggled in his last outing against the Dodgers, so this was nice to see. He’s locked into a rotation spot with the Rockies to begin the year, but fantasy value figures to be elusive in this situation.
Mar 18 - 8:49 PM

Jordan Lyles tossed three innings of one-run ball Tuesday afternoon against the Royals.

Lyles served up a second-inning solo home run to Royals outfielder Paulo Orlando and a third-inning single to Royals shortstop prospect Raul A. Mondesi. He also walked Christian Colon in the bottom of the first. The 25-year-old right-hander probably won't carry much fantasy intrigue in 2016, even as a streamer. He posted a 5.14 ERA in 10 starts last season before undergoing surgery in June to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe.
Mar 8 - 5:28 PM

Jordan Lyles yielded two runs over two innings Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Lyles gave up three hits and struck out a pair. The 25-year-old suffered a broken hand in 2014 and was limited to just 10 starts last season due to a toe injury which required surgery, but with his penchant for inducing ground balls, he should be a useful starter for Colorado if he gets better luck on the health front.
Mar 3 - 6:57 PM

Rockies and RHP Jordan Lyles avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.975 million contract.

Lyles posted a 5.14 ERA over 10 starts this past season prior to undergoing surgery in June to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe. He should be ready to go for spring training. The 25-year-old was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter.
Wed, Dec 2, 2015 03:16:00 PM

Rockies activated RHP Jordan Lyles from the 60-day disabled list.

The move puts the right-hander back on the team's 40-man roster. He missed the majority of the 2015 campaign after undergoing surgery in June to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe. He should be fully healthy and ready to go for spring training where he's expected to earn a spot in the Opening Day rotation.

Jordan Lyles (toe) is scheduled to throw three innings in the instructional league on Wednesday.

He missed much of the season after having surgery in June to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe. Lyles will also play winter ball in order to make up for lost time.
