The right-hander has not pitched well as of late, going 0-4 with a 7.40 ERA in his last six starts.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) 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
(5/23/2015) 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.

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.

Lyles suffered the injury on a comebacker in the first inning of Wednesday's game against the Angels. He owns a 4.30 ERA and 21:17 K:BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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

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.

"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.

Rockies' Jordan Lyles allows five unearned runs Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles allowed five unearned runs on two hits and two walks in four innings in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the White Sox.

Lyles ran into trouble in his fourth and final inning but escaping the outing without having any runs charged to his ERA, which has falled to 0.60 through 15 spring innings. He threw 55 pitches after coming into the start hoping to raise his pitch count to 70, the Denver Post reports.

"I feel good," Lyles said. "I think where I’m at now is strides ahead of where I was last year at this time. I can say that with confidence. A lot of that has to do with my changeup, and I was working on my curveball today. I threw some good ones and some bad ones."

Lyles is locked into a rotation spot to start the season.


Rockies' Jordan Lyles tosses four perfect innings Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles was at his best Thursday, retiring all 12 of the batters he faced in four perfect innings against the Royals.

Lyles was able to get eight groundouts and two strikeouts during his two innings of work, continuing an impressive spring that has featured just one earned run and three hits allowed in 11 innings as he hones his split-finger changeup.

"I just have a lot of confidence in my changeup, a pitch I haven't had in previous years," Lyles said after the outing, per MLB.com. "It's another pitch I can lead on. I threw it a lot during the game but they haven't been hit hard."

Lyles is looking to improve on a 2014 season in which he went 7-4 with a 4.33 ERA and 90:46 K:BB ratio in 126 2/3 innings.


Rockies' Jordan Lyles racking up strikeouts with changeup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles has seen a rise in strikeouts this spring largely due to his split-finger changeup, a pitch he developed last summer and honed during the offseason, MLB.com reports.

"Of my strikeouts this spring, I want to say 75 percent [of the put-away pitches] have been changeups," Lyles said. "That tells me it's a little more difficult to see. I don't necessarily think I'm a strikeout pitcher now just because of that one pitch, but it adds something for the hitter to respect. A good changeup can make the other pitches better."

Lyles has been a ground-ball pitcher throughout his career but has a 1-to-1 ground-to-fly ratio this spring. However, the changeup can allow him to put batters away and not extend at-bats.

"It was primarily to keep hitters off his fastball and create more margin for error," Weiss said. "He's embraced [the changeup]. It's become more than that. It's become a pitch he can finish hitters with so the at-bats don't get extended against him -- foul ball, foul ball, foul ball, and now you're at eight- and nine-pitch at-bats."

Lyles has surrendered two runs (one earned) in seven innings this spring.
