Jordan Lyles tosses quality start

|(8/28/14) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles tossed a quality start Thursday against the Giants.
Lyles allowed three runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out five and walked three during the outing. The Giants were able to tag Lyles early, but he settled in after briefly stumbling. After giving up a single to lead off the second inning, Lyles allowed Gregor Blanco to belt a two-run homer. He would settle in at that point, keeping the Giants off the board over the next three innings. He couldn’t keep San Francisco off the board in the sixth. After a leadoff single, Lyles walked two batters, loading the bases. Hunter Pence managed to bring home another run on a sac fly. Despite walking the next hitter, Lyles was able to get out of the inning without giving up any more runs.
With the loss, Lyles fell to 6-2. He’ll take on the Giants in his next start.
|2014 Summary: What little Fantasy appeal Jordan Lyles had going into 2014 appeared to have been shredded when he was dealt to the Rockies, yet he emerged with his best season to date. All things are relative -- Lyles merely posted his the first sub-5.00 ERA of his four-year career, finishing with a 4.33 mark. He actually had a 3.52 ERA through his first 12 starts, but then he missed two months with a fractured left hand and wasn't as effective when he returned. Key to Lyles' improvement was -- get this -- a lower home run rate (0.9 HR/9, down from 1.1), even with Coors Field as his home park. Lyles relied more on his slider, which was an effective ground ball pitch to complement his sinker.|
Playing time status: Lyles would appear to have a lock on a rotation spot after last season's progress.
2015 Outlook: Avoiding home runs as a Rockies hurler is a neat trick, but even if Lyles can repeat it, he allows too much contact and too many walks to be reliable in mixed leagues. He is good enough, however, to fill out the back end of an NL-only rotation.
