Lyles holds a 2.63 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 13.2 innings pitched since being promoted to the majors on June 20.

EDGE Analysis

After a putrid start to the season where the he allowed at least five runs in four of his five appearances, Lyles has completely turned things around as of late. His strikeout numbers are still lackluster at best since the promotion (5.3 K/9), but his stellar 1.3 BB/9 and 0.7 HR/9 are allowing him to hold his own in the big leagues. The right-hander's role may be in question in the coming days, even with his recent success. Chris Rusin (shoulder) is expected to come off the disabled list this coming week, which could put Lyles' job as the Rockies' long reliever in jeopardy. How the Rockies plan to handle this situation will likely become clearer as Rusin's activation comes nearer, but in the meantime, Lyles will look to continue pitching like he has over the past month, a time in which he's lowered his ERA from 8.55 to 6.15 on the season.

Lyles was recalled Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Lyles last pitched for the Rockies on May 23 when he gave up four earned runs in 2.1 innings of work, bringing his ERA to 8.55 and WHIP to 2.05 on the season and leading him to be optioned to Triple-A. Lyles will likely serve as a long reliever, a role that is needed due to Tyler Chatwood and Chris Rusin both being lost to the 15-day DL.

Lyles was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lyles has started five games during his in the majors in 2016, earning a dismal 8.55 ERA and 2.05 WHIP over 20 innings pitched. He was sent down to the minors when Jorge De La Rosa (groin) was reinstated Tuesday to make his first start since injury against the Red Sox. Lyles will spend some time in Triple-A making adjustments, but he could be called up again later in the year if he's needed.

Lyles gave up six runs -- four earned -- on five hits over 2.1 innings in a spot start against Pittsburgh on Monday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

He's not scheduled to pitch as a member of the rotation this weekend, and the ongoing struggles could punch Lyles' ticket back to Triple-A in the near future if the Rockies decide to bring up a fresh arm from Albuquerque in the coming days. Monday's blow-up pushed his season ERA to 8.55 in five starts.

Lyles will be the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Pirates, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lyles will get another chance to start due to the postponement of their matchup with the Pirates being moved to Monday. Lyles was just called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, and was expected to be a long reliever after a rough start to the year with a 7.64 ERA and 1.87 WHIP in four starts.

Lyles was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old faltered in a starting role with Colorado earlier this year, posting a 7.64 ERA and 1.87 WHIP in four starts. He'll step into a long-relief role this time around, replacing Christian Bergman (oblique) in the bullpen, but he remains a big ratios risk given his propensity for walking batters and inability to miss bats.

Lyles has been optioned to Triple-A, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lyles has scuffled all season, walking more batters (11) than he's struck out (9) while pitching to a 7.64 ERA over 17.2 innings. Chris Rusin will join the Colorado rotation Friday against Arizona in a road start at Chase Field.

Lyles lasted just 2.2 innings in Sunday's start against the Dodgers, allowing five runs on five hits and five walks. He did not record a strikeout or factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

After struggling to begin the year, Lyles turned in a gem in his previous outing, only to record another clunker. Lyles' struggles have all come at home this season, where he has an ERA of 12.66, yielding some rather obvious splits at this early stage of the season. His next start will come on the road, but things don't get much easier, as he will face the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Lyles (1-1) was masterful Monday against the Reds, allowing just an unearned run in seven innings. He allowed four hits, struck out four, and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

Lyles' start comes out of nowhere, as the righty had been tormented for 10 runs in eight innings across his first two starts of the season. It may be worth noting that this was Lyles' first start away from Coors Field this year, but in 2015 he actually registered a worse ERA on the road than he did at home. Lyles will carry a 6.00 ERA into his start next Monday against the Pirates.

Lyles was tagged for five runs on six hits in 4.2 innings Wednesday against the visiting Giants. He struck out just one while walking two and avoiding a decision.

EDGE Analysis

That's two starts and two five-run outings for the 25-year-old righty. Coming off a 5.14 ERA last year and still pitching in the unfriendly confines of Coors Field, Lyles doesn't make for an appetizing fantasy start.
