Jordan Lyles SP COL 17 Hrs

Jordan Lyles (hand) is on pace to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on August 4.

"He'll certainly be close, if not ready to go, at that point," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Lyles threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Modesto on Saturday. The righty surprised with a 3.52 ERA in his first 11 starts before breaking the middle metacarpal on his left hand in early June.

Rockies transferred RHP Jordan Lyles from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The club needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Brett Anderson. Lyles, who is out with a fracture of the middle metacarpal on his left hand, won't be eligible to return until early August.

Jordan Lyles will not need surgery but is still expected to be sidelined for a while due to a fracture of the middle metacarpal on his left hand.

Lyles will wear a cast or a hard splint on his hand once the swelling goes down. "He's going to be out for a few weeks, but we don't know exactly how long that is right now," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "But it's one of those things where he'll have to be re-evaluated every week or so. And go from there."

Rockies placed RHP Jordan Lyles on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand.

Lyles suffered the injury during a home plate collision with the Diamondbacks' Martin Prado during his start on Wednesday night. The good news is that it was his glove hand, but it's unclear how much time he'll need to miss.

Jordan Lyles, a right-handed pitcher, was diagnosed late Wednesday with a broken left hand.

Lyles suffered the injury on a home-plate collision with the Diamondbacks' Martin Prado in the first inning of his start Wednesday night. He stayed in for four total frames, but X-rays were taken after the game and revealed the broken bone above the knuckle of his left middle finger. Lyles will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday. It's not yet clear how long he might be out.

Jordan Lyles got the no-decision, allowing two runs over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Lyles worked around some spotty command, limiting the damage against the Phillies. Overall, the right-hander allowed five hits, walked four, and struck out five. Lyles has a 3.46 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 46/25 K/BB ratio in 65 innings. Considering his track record and his home ballpark, though, he's still a risky play in mixed leagues. Lyles will chase his sixth win in his next start against the Diamondbacks at home.

Jordan Lyles yielded two runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Lyles gave up six runs and walked a career-high eight batters in his last outing, but he bounced back nicely in this one. The 23-year-old allowed six hits and one walk while striking out six batters. He has delivered seven quality starts in his 10 outings this season to go along with a 3.45 ERA and 41/21 K/BB ratio in 60 innings. He's been a solid addition for the Rockies.

Jordan Lyles was rocked for six earned runs in 3 1/3 innings Saturday as the Rockies fell to the Padres.

Lyles was due for a clunker after opening the season 5-0, and the Padres handed it to him on Saturday night at Coors Field. Lyles surrendered five hits and walked six, watching his ERA jump from 2.66 to 3.50 and his WHIP go from 1.09 to 1.22. Expect the regression to continue.

Jordan Lyles moved to 5-0 after limiting the Reds to two runs in six innings on Saturday.

Lyles got 11 runs of support from his offense and struck out a season-high eight batters as the Rockies won their 23rd game of the year. The young right-hander has an impressive 2.66 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 50 2/3 innings this season and warrants a roster spot in mixed fantasy leagues for as long as he can keep it up. Lyles had issues with mid-season fading in Houston.

Jordan Lyles moved to 4-0 after holding the Rangers to two runs over eight innings on Monday.

Lyles' strikeout rate is awful, but he's getting more grounders than ever before and he has a 2.62 ERA after seven starts. We're still not buying it -- he's not going to keep stranding runners or preventing homers at this rate -- but he's been a big reason the Rockies have been one of the league's most pleasant surprises thus far.
