  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Grabs fifth win

    Lyles (5-17) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out three over five scoreless innings to earn the win Saturday over the Astros.

    Lyles was defeated by the Astros in his last start, but he was able to put together his second scoreless outing of the season in Saturday's game. The veteran right-hander has had a tough season, posting a 6.24 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 116:44 K:BB through 171.2 innings over 30 starts this year. He's allowed 16 runs across 29.1 innings in September, a modest improvement on his season numbers. He's tentatively lined up to make his last start of the campaign at home versus the Yankees next week.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Leads majors with 17 losses

    Lyles (4-17) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk over six innings against Houston. He struck out six.

    Lyles also hit two batters to go along with giving up four extra-base hits, two singles and a walk. Lyles, who is now three losses clear of his next closest competitors, continues to eat innings for the Royals while opponents continue to feast when he does. His ERA in September now stands at 5.98, an improvement over his season ERA of 6.43. Despite those consistent struggles, Lyles has now tossed five innings or more in 26 of his 29 starts. He is currently scheduled to get another chance to face the Astros next weekend in Houston.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Tagged for seven runs

    Lyles did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing seven runs on seven hits over five innings against the White Sox in the second game of a doubleheader. He struck out three.

    Lyles was cruising Tuesday, holding the White Sox hitless until Eloy Jimenez cranked a home run to lead off the fifth inning. Lyles would then unravel in the sixth, allowing six consecutive hits without recording an out, as he was charged for six more runs. The 32-year-old right-hander has struggled to a 7.14 ERA over his last 10 starts (58 innings). Lyles is now 4-16 with a 6.44 ERA through 28 starts (160.2 innings) this season. He's lined up for a home matchup with the Guardians early next week.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Handed loss Wednesday

    Lyles (4-16) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while failing to record a strikeout over 5.1 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the White Sox.

    Lyles has gone eight innings in every other start over his last six outings, though he has a 1-4 record with 27 runs allowed (26 earned) over 37.1 innings in that span. The veteran right-hander was OK in this one, with Andrew Vaughn's two-run home run in the sixth inning ending his start. Lyles is now at a 6.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 104:41 K:BB through 155.1 innings spanning 27 starts this season. He's projected to make his next start on the road in a rematch versus the White Sox next week.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Snags fourth win

    Lyles (4-15) allowed two runs on four hits over eight innings Friday, striking out seven and earning a win over Boston.

    Lyles kept the Red Sox scoreless for seven frames before Alex Verdugo finally broke up the shutout with a two-run shot in the eighth inning. It's the fifth time this season that Lyles has tossed at least eight innings, but he was 0-4 in those outings prior to Friday's win. The veteran righty now owns a 6.29 ERA with a 104:40 K:BB through 150.1 frames. Lyles is currently lined up to face the White Sox at home next week.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Hit hard in Seattle

    Lyles (3-15) took the loss Saturday, allowing seven runs on six hits and three walks over three innings against Seattle. He struck out four.

    The 32-year-old righty allowed all seven of his earned runs in the third inning on three homers, including a Teoscar Hernandez grand slam. This marks the shortest outing for Lyles since he allowed seven earned runs to Milwaukee in 2.1 innings on May 14. In eight second-half starts, the veteran is now 2-4 with a 6.70 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB across 45.2 innings. Lyles is projected to make his next start at home against the Red Sox.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Takes loss in complete-game effort

    Lyles dropped to 3-14 in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Cubs after allowing four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two over eight innings.

    Interestingly enough, Lyles is now tied with Sandy Alcantara for the league lead with three complete games this season after going the distance for the second time in his last three starts. However, each time Lyles has lasted the whole game, he's lost. The Cubs jumped on him with two quick runs in the first and then padded the lead with a solo home run in the fifth and eighth innings. Lyles has now given up multiple home runs in consecutive games and sits at a 6.07 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 93:37 K:BB over 139.1 innings. His next start is expected to come next weekend versus the Mariners.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Rocked by Mariners

    Lyles did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and one walk over five innings against the Mariners. He struck out three.

    After going eight innings last time out against the Red Sox, Lyles went just five innings and threw 91 pitches Tuesday. However, his shortened outing didn't prevent him from serving up four home runs on the day, setting a single-game season-high in the category. Over his last five appearances (28.2 innings), Lyles owns a 7.22 ERA and an 18:5 K:BB. He's tentatively scheduled to face off against the Cubs this weekend.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Goes distance in loss

    Lyles (3-13) took the loss Wednesday, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk over eight innings as the Royals were downed 4-3 by the Red Sox. He struck out six.

    The veteran right-hander delivered his second complete game of the season in a road loss, and it's indicative of Kansas City's season that Lyles lost the other one too (May 9 against the White Sox.) He fired 70 of 102 pitches for strikes, and while he can provide the Royals with innings, that's about the extent of his value given his 6.13 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 88:35 K:BB through 126.1 frames this season. He'll next take the mound for a home start early next week against the Mariners.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Earns third win

    Lyles (3-12) earned the win Friday, allowing five runs on eight hits and zero walks over 5.2 innings against the Phillies. He struck out two.

    After a four-run sixth put Kansas City up by two, Lyles was pulled following a Trea Turner single that cut the Royals' lead to one. The bullpen proceeded to blank the Phillies the rest of the way, earning Lyles his third victory of the season. It wasn't pretty, but Lyles has now earned the victory in his last two starts after securing just one win in his previous 18 outings. His next start is likely to come next week in Boston.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Gets back into win column

    Lyles (2-12) picked up the win Saturday in a 10-7 victory over the Twins, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran right-hander got staked to a 6-0 lead after the first three innings, and while Lyles stumbled in the fourth he managed to do just enough to record the win. Both his wins this season have come in his last five starts, but his 4.33 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB through 27 innings over that stretch highlight his limited fantasy ceiling in most formats. He's next lined up to take the mound next weekend in Philadelphia.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Takes 12th loss

    Lyles (1-12) took the loss Sunday, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings against the Yankees. He struck out three.

    The Yankees jumped on Lyles early, scoring four runs on five hits in the opening inning. While Lyles was able to settle in a bit, allowing just one run over his final four frames, the Royals couldn't overcome the early deficit, tagging Lyles with his league-high 12th loss. The 32-year-old right-hander has struggled to a 6.19 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP and 76:32 K:BB through 19 starts (107.2 innings) this season. Lyles is currently lined up to face the Twins at home in his next outing.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Impresses in no-decision

    Lyles pitched six scoreless innings against Detroit on Monday, allowing three hits and one walk while striking out four batters.

    Lyles was pretty efficient in the outing, needing just 83 pitches (55 of which were a strike) to get through six frames. All three of the hits he allowed were singles, and the right-hander notched his third quality start of the campaign. Lyles hasn't been rosterable in most fantasy formats this season with a 6.05 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 6.4 K/9, but he's at least eaten innings for the Royals, going six or more frames in nine of his 18 starts. Lyles has also shown improvement of late, posting a 3.13 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB over his past four starts spanning 23 innings.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Pitches well in no-decision

    Lyles allowed one run on six hits and no walks while striking out five batters over five innings in a no-decision against Cleveland on Thursday.

    Lyles was scratched from his scheduled start last Friday due to an illness but was well enough by Thursday to take the mound against the Guardians. The right-hander put together one of his best starts of the campaign, finishing with no walks for just the third time and allowing only one run, which came on a solo shot by Andres Gimenez in the second inning. Lyles has completed at least five frames in each of his past eight starts, though he hasn't been all that impressive over that span with a 5.60 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31:13 K:BB over 45 innings.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Cleared for Thursday

    Lyles (illness) is listed as the Royals' probable pitcher for Thursday's game against the Guardians at Progressive Field.

    As anticipated, Lyles is ready to make his 17th start of the season after he missed his previous turn through the rotation last weekend, when he was scratched against the Dodgers after falling ill. The 32-year-old right-hander is valued by the Royals for his ability to eat innings, but his 1-11 record and poor ratios (6.68 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 8.7 K-BB%) have rendered him mostly unusable in fantasy leagues.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Expected to start Thursday

    Lyles (illness) is expected to make his next start Thursday against the Guardians in Cleveland, Anne Rogers of reports.

    After coming down with an illness this past Friday, Lyles ended up missing his turn through the rotation, but he looks like he's shown enough improvement over the last few days to avoid a trip to the 15-day injured list. Assuming Lyles checks out fine following a throwing session early this week, he shouldn't face any restrictions when he returns to the mound Thursday for the series opener at Progressive Field. Through 16 starts this season, Lyles is 1-11 with a 6.68 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and a 64:30 K:BB in 91.2 innings.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Scratched from start Friday

    Lyles was scratched from his scheduled start Friday versus the Dodgers due to an illness, Jaylon T. Thompson of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Alec Marsh will be called up from Triple-A Omaha to start in place of Lyles, who should be able to slot back into the Royals' rotation next week. The 32-year-old has allowed the most earned runs (68) of any major-league pitcher this season.
