Tyler Lyons is in line to start on Wednesday versus the Pirates in Carlos Martinez's (shoulder) place.

The Cardinals had the option of pushing John Lackey back to Monday for the Pittsburgh series, which would put Lance Lynn in line to start Tuesday and Michael Wacha Wednesday. However, manager Mike Matheny has decided not to tinker with the rotation, leaving Lyons to start Wednesday in a game that could potentially have huge playoff implications.
Sep 27 - 11:19 AM

Tyler Lyons pitched six innings of three-run ball in his spot start Wednesday against the Nationals.

Lyons will probably be called on once or twice more this month with the Cardinals sitting pretty in the NL playoff picture. He'll be a decent option in NL-only leagues when he gets the nod as a starter.
Sep 3 - 12:17 AM

Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons is going to make a spot start for the Cardinals on Wednesday night against the Nationals. The left-hander will probably then slide into a long relief role.
Sep 2 - 4:07 PM

Cardinals optioned LHP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons tossed 7 2/3 scoreless relief innings in his most recent stint with the big club. He'll be back in September.
Aug 23 - 1:37 PM

Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons holds a 5.02 ERA over six starts for the Cards this season, although he's struck out 31 over 28 2/3 frames. He'll work in long relief.
Aug 7 - 1:07 PM

Cardinals optioned LHP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a spot start as the 26th man during Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. He'll return to a 3.10 ERA at Memphis.
Jul 8 - 8:39 AM

Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons will serve as the 26th man in Tuesday's doubleheader and start against Jake Arrieta in the first game. The 27-year-old has a 5.09 ERA and 28/7 K/BB ratio in 23 innings over five starts with the Cardinals this season. He has pitched really well in his last two chances.
Jul 7 - 11:41 AM

Cardinals optioned LHP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons pitched well in two fill-in starts for the Cards, but Lance Lynn is ready to return from a right forearm strain. Lyons should get another shot later this season, either as a spot starter or long reliever.
Jun 25 - 12:53 PM

Tyler Lyons allowed three runs over five innings in a 12-4 win over the Phillies on Friday.

His only mistake was a three-run homer by Ryan Howard in his final inning of work. Lyons gave up five hits in all while walking one batter and striking out five. Lance Lynn (forearm) could be ready for his next turn in the Cardinals' starting rotation, which means that Lyons is likely headed back to Triple-A soon.
Jun 19 - 11:22 PM

Making his fourth start of the season and his first since being sent to Triple-A on May 16, Tyler Lyons held the Royals to two runs on three hits over five innings on Saturday.

Lyons is pitching in the place of the injured Lance Lynn (forearm). While he threw to a 5.54 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in his first three starts, his outing against the Royals looked pretty good. Lyons struck out six and walked one. Both runs on his line came via solo homers by Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez in the second and fourth innings, respectively. We'll see how many starts Lynn ends up missing (it could just be a few), but Lyons will definitely be starting at Target Field against the Twins on Thursday afternoon.
Jun 13 - 8:46 PM

Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

With Lance Lynn (forearm) hitting the disabled list, Lyons is being called up to start in his place on Saturday. In three previous starts this season, the southpaw struggled with a 5.54 ERA and 1.77 WHIP. He's not a particularly palatable fantasy option.
Jun 12 - 4:52 PM

Cardinals optioned LHP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons struck out 17 but held a 5.54 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over three starts with the big club. The Cards are expected to activate Jaime Garcia (shoulder) from the disabled list to start on Thursday.
May 17 - 1:47 PM

Tyler Lyons surrendered three earned runs over 3 2/3 innings Saturday in the Cardinals' loss to the Tigers.

Lyons escaped with a no-decision in the 10-inning game. He gave up seven hits and walked two while failing to make it out of the top of the fourth. Jaime Garcia (shoulder) may be called on to take his spot next week.
May 16 - 7:40 PM

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that Tyler Lyons will remain in the team's rotation.

Mozeliak indicated that Lyons could receive at least a couple more starts while the club waits on Jaime Garcia (shoulder) and Marco Gonzales (pectoral). Lyons has been tolerable as a fill-in, posting a 4.82 ERA but with a 12/3 K/BB ratio over 9 1/3 innings. He'll face the Tigers in Detroit next weekend.
