News: Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood is recovering from Tommy John surgery at a faster pace than expected, according to The Denver Post

Chatwood, 25, underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career last July. It's still unknown, and maybe not even practical to speculate, whether Chatwood will return this season. However, it does appear progress is being made with his recovery. 

“I think I’m ahead of where they expected me to be, throwing-wise, so that’s always good,” Chatwood said. “I really don’t want to set a schedule, but the plan is to come back this season.”

One good sign is the fact Chatwood was able to throw a 40-pitch bullpen on Sunday. 

Chatwood first had Tommy John surgery when he was 16 so the injury history is a concern. However, manager Walt Weiss said that while a return to the mound is too far out at this time, Chatwood is showing signs of being further along than what the club expected. 

"(W)ith his history and this being his second (surgery), we are going to take our time and make sure he’s ready to go out and compete," Weiss said.

News: 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."
