Rockies SP Jordan Lyles set to rejoin rotation Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Rockies starting pitcher Jordan Lyles, who is dealing with a toe sprain on his left foot, will rejoin the rotation Sunday against the Phillies, according to MLB.com.
He was bumped from his original start Saturday in order for Jorge De La Rosa to rejoin the rotation after he was scratched Tuesday due to a cut on his hand.
"He's had some strange occurances on the mound," Weiss said to the Denver Post. "But his arm has always been healthy, that's the silver lining I guess."
Lyles is 0-4 with a 7.43 ERA in his last five starts.

|(5/26/15) Rockies SP Jordan Lyles will have his Saturday start pushed back because of a left big toe sprain, according to MLB.com and The Denver Post.
Lyles sustained the injury during Saturday's game, but he won't need a stint on the disabled list. Left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa will start Saturday's game at Philadelphia.
Rockies unsure if P Jordan Lyles can make next start
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) 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."
Rockies SP Jordan Lyles exits start Saturday with apparent injury
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Rockies starting pitcher Jordan Lyles was removed from the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants with a sprained left toe. Lyles exited the game in the fifth inning with the bases loaded and no one out. He suffered the injury after he landed awkwardly following a pitch in the fourth inning.
Lyles (2-5) had been checked on by the team's trainer three times before finally exiting with the injury.
"He was throwing the ball well to start, but noticeably different after that," manager Walt Weiss said, per the Denver Post. "It got to the point where we thought he was spinning off of it when he tried to protect that landing foot."
The right-hander wound up going four innings, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits. He struck out four without issuing a walk, throwing 41 of his 62 pitches for strikes. He is considered day-to-day in advance of his next start, currently scheduled for Friday against the Phillies.
Rockies P Jordan Lyles allows four runs in Monday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings of work during Monday's 4-3 loss to the Phillies.
Lyles struck out three batters and walked two during the outing. His troubles began in the first inning when he surrendered one run on two hits. He was able to settle down before running into trouble in the sixth inning. During the inning, Lyles gave up three hits, which led to three runs. He took the loss for his effort.
"They put together some at-bats on him -- found the barrel -- but I felt like he was still throwing the ball pretty well," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, per MLB.com. "He just got some pitches elevated."
Lyles has given up at least four runs in each of his last three starts. He is now 2-4 with a 4.53 ERA. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Giants.
|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.
