Lyles left Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants after four innings with a sprained toe on his left foot, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Lyles stayed in the game initially after suffering the injury, but it seemed to affect his performance as he went on to allow five runs. The Rockies are now in a tough spot with the bullpen called into duty so early in a twin bill, but Lyles is said to be merely day-to-day.

Lyles covered six innings and gave up four runs to take his fourth loss of the season in Monday's start against the Phillies.

Lyles' availability Monday appeared to be in peril after he took a liner off the hand in his previous outing, but the swelling died down enough over the last few days to allow him to pitch. The right-hander fell just shy of notching a quality start, something he's failed to do in his last four turns. His value remains largely confined to NL-only leagues at this time.

Lyles (hand) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Phillies.

Lyles left his last start following the first inning after taking a line drive off his pitching hand, but the setback will not cost him any additional action. Monday's game will be played at Coors Field, where Lyles owns a 1-1 record and 2.75 ERA in three starts this season.

Lyles (hand) said after Wednesday's outing against the Angels that he "fully intends" to make his next scheduled start Monday versus the Phillies, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Lyles left Wednesday's outing after just one inning when he took a comebacker off the bat of Albert Pujols to his right (throwing) hand. Fortunately, X-rays cleared him of any fractures, but Lyles is nursing a sizable bruise. While the 24-year-old seems optimistic that the swelling will dissipate over the next couple of days, he'll have to demonstrate during side sessions that he's feeling fine in order to receive clearance to make his next turn.

Lyles took the loss in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with Arizona. He allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk, while striking out six, over seven innings pitched.

Lyles lost for the second consecutive start to the Diamondbacks, although he pitched better this time out. He has been decidedly mediocre this year, posting a 4.42 ERA with 21 strikeouts and 17 walks in 36.2 innings, while giving up up more than four earned runs in three of his six starts. That said, he is secure in the Rockies' rotation for now.

Lyles will have a chance for revenge when he faces off against Arizona again in his next start Tuesday.

Lyles (2-1) held the Padres to just one run on six hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in Thursday's home victory. He struck out four.

A 2-1 game in Colorado is a rare thing, but Lyles has been considerably more effective in his home starts than he has on the road. He also still owns a hideous 14:11 K:BB on the year, which takes a lot of the shine off his 2.92 ERA. If you can sell him high in an NL-only league somehow, do it.
