Jordan Lyles unable to factor into the decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles wasn't a factor in the decision in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday against the Reds, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings of a 10-9 victory.

Over his last three starts covering 16 1/3 innings, Lyles has allowed 11 earned runs. He owns a 4.01 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 15 starts (85 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at home against Miami.

Jordan Lyles gives up two runs vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles wasn't a factor in the decision Monday, allowing two earned runs on four hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

Lyles fell behind by allowing a solo home run in the fourth inning, but his offense was able to deliver a three-run shot of its own in the top of the sixth. The starter was then pulled after giving up a one-out single in the bottom of the sixth, and the bullpen allowed that runner to score but otherwise kept the Padres at bay in the inning. That wasn't the case in the later innings, as the bullpen surrendered the lead in the seventh. Lyles owns a 3.70 ERA and 58:30 K:BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Reds Saturday.

Lyles (6-1) hadn't pitched since June 4 due to a fractured hand, and though he didn't have his best stuff in his return to action, the offense did more than enough to get him a win. Lyles owns a 3.72 ERA and 54:27 K:BB ratio in 75 innings. He's scheduled to face the Padres in San Diego Monday.

Jordan Lyles' timetable becoming clear with X-rays scheduled


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles continues to throw on the side, while recovering from a broken left (non-pitching) hand.

Lyles is scheduled to undergo a second follow-up X-ray next Wednesday, as the team continues to monitor his progress three weeks removed from the injury. He is scheduled for another examination two weeks from his second, with the expectation he can have his splint removed.

"We're going to stay ready, so when I get this thing [splint] off, the transition won't be too long," Lyles told MLB.com Wednesday.

Lyles will still need to strengthen the hand for fielding and hitting before he can return to game action, but his throwing arm won't need much time. He plans to begin throwing off a mound later this week.

Not ready to trust Jordan Lyles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) Rare is the starting pitcher who improves after joining the Rockies. In the more than 20-year history of the franchise, Jorge De La Rosa is the only one who comes to mind. But if the first month of this season is any indication, Jordan Lyles is poised to join him.

With another gem Wednesday, Lyles is 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in six starts. Given that he was arguably the most hittable pitcher in baseball the previous two years in Houston -- giving up 10.3 hits and 1.2 home runs per nine innings, poor ratios by any standard -- he's about the last pitcher you'd expect to find success at Coors Field, where pitches flatten and fly balls sail.

Granted, he's always been more of a groundball pitcher, which made the high home run rates kind of surprising, and has become even more of one this year by relying more than ever on his sinker. But again, the thin air of Coors Field flattens pitches. Other sinkerballers have failed there, most famously Mike Hampton. He got off to a good start, too, before the need to create more sink forced him into some bad habits mechanically.

Considering his brutal track record, I'd be doubting the legitimacy of Lyles' hot start even if he was pitching elsewhere, but in Colorado especially, I'm staying far away.


Bullpen lets Jordan Lyles down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Rockies starting pitcher Jordan Lyles had no trouble dealing with the Diamondbacks Wednesday, but the bullpen cost him a win in a 5-4 loss.

Lyles tossed his third quality start in a row, limiting Arizona's offense to just one run on three hits. He walked two batters and struck out one, while picking up nine groundball outs.

Lyles exited the game in line for a 4-1 win, but the bullpen surrendered four runs over the final three innings, leaving him saddled with a no-decision. He remains 3-0 on the season with a 2.70 ERA heading into his next start, set for Monday against the Rangers. 


Jordan Lyles settles for no-decision vs. Dodgers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles put together a quality outing, but had to settle for a no-decision Friday night against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The right-hander permitted two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four in seven innings of work.

Lyles allowed four runs in his first start of the season. Since then, he has allowed just four earned runs over his last 18 2/3 innings pitched in three starts. He owns a 3.04 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP with an 18:7 K:BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings pitched. He'll make his next start Wednesday at Arizona.

Jordan Lyles pitches well in win vs. Phillies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles gave up just one unearned run on five hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out two in his team's 3-1 win over the Phillies Saturday.

Lyles (3-0) has done a good job limiting scoring over his last three starts despite not posting a strong strikeout rate. The Phillies' only run came in the eighth inning, when the only batter Lyles pitched to in the inning came around to score. He owns a 3.42 ERA and 14:6 K:BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings. Lyles is slated to face the Dodgers in Los Angeles Friday.
