Rockies RHP Lyles stymies San Diego for second win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Rockies starter Jordan Lyles continued Thursday to be one of the pleasant surprises of 2015, but blew a chance to maintain a pattern he established in his first three starts.
Lyles gave up five hits in six innings in each of his first three outings. He yielded six hits in six innings against the Padres.
No matter. He still won to raise his record to 2-1. Lyles surrendered just one run with two walks and four strikeouts. Only a Yonder Alonso RBI single in the fourth provided a blemish.
Lyles will take his 2.92 ERA into his next start against Arizona on Tuesday.
Rockies starter Lyles can't compete against Greinke in defeat
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Opposing pitchers must be sharp when matched up against Dodgers stud Zack Greinke. Rockies right-hander Jordan Lyles was not sharp Saturday night. The result was his first loss of the season.
Lyles walked five in six innings. He also gave up five hits and four earned runs. He was hanging in there until a two-run single by Adrian Gonazalez in the fifth stretched the Los Angeles lead to 4-1.
"Tonight was not good," Lyles said after the game, per MLB.com. "I cannot walk that many people."
His ERA jumped more than a point to 3.50, but he will have a chance to lower it Thursday against San Diego.

Rockies P Jordan Lyles struggles in loss to Mariners
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles had a rough outing on Friday in a 5-4 loss to the Mariners. Although he only pitched 1 1/3 innings, he gave up three runs and three walks in his final spring appearance.
"It's tough to end on that kind of outing, but everything's good, everything's ready for the season," Lyles said. "This was kind of like a bullpen session. It's not fun giving up runs and walking everybody in the lineup, but I got the work in and I'm ready for Tuesday," per MLB.com.
Prior to Friday's game, Lyles had only allowed two earned runs in his first six outings.
|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.
