Rockies unsure if P Jordan Lyles can make next start
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3:53 pm ET) The Rockies are unsure if pitcher Jordan Lyles will be able to make his next scheduled start, according to The Denver Post

Lyles sprained the big toe of his left foot during Saturday's start against the Giants. 

"As far as the status of his next start, we aren't sure yet," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "There are some things that have to happen. He has to throw his side (session), and those are determining factors."

Lyles has been known to play through pain. Earlier this month, he took an Albert Pujols' comebacker to his hand and was able to make his next start. Lyles is scheduled to start this Friday. 

"I just over-extended my big toe and something popped," Lyles said Sunday. "Hopefully I will try to be out there for my next start, like I did last time with my hand."
