Rockies RHP Lyles stymies San Diego for second win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) 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

(4/19/2015) 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
(4/4/2015) 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.

 


Jordan Lyles picked to start second game of season for Rockies

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.


Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles shows his array of pitches in spring debut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles came into spring training with the goal of making his new changeup becomes a weapon in his arsenal. Lyles faced eight batters in his spring training debut Wednesday and was able to mix in most of the pitches he wanted to throw, reports the Denver Post.

"I wanted to throw everything," Lyles said. "I usually start out slow throwing just fastball-changeup. But I really wanted to work in everything, especially the changeup. I probably threw six or seven of those. That was the gameplan going in. That was my second most-used pitch today."

Lyles allowed no hits with two strikeouts and a walk in his appearance against the Diamondbacks.


Rockies' Jordan Lyles hoping new changeup leads to success


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles is hoping a new changeup will lead to success this season, according to the Denver Post

Lyles started experimenting with a split-change last year, and spent all offseason honing the pitch. I've been working on that all offseason," Lyles said. "I wasn't paying too much attention to my curveball and cutter. I really wanted to give a bigger gap between mph."

Manager Walt Weiss came away impressed with the offering. "His confidence in that pitch has skyrocketed," he said. Weiss added that he views Lyles as "a staple for [the Rockies."

Lyles is expected to open the year in the team's rotation. He posted a 4.33 ERA over 126 2/3 innings last season.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
