    • Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Will not play this weekend
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lyons has been shut down for the rest of the 2017 season, Jim Hayes of Fox Sports Midwest reports. With the Cardinals now out of playoff contention, manager Mike Matheny has elected to shut Lyons down ahead of this weekend's series against the Brewers. The 29-year-old appeared in 50 games for the club this season, and recorded a 2.83 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over the course of 54 relief innings.

    • Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Mows down Reds in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lyons grabbed his 14th hold by racking up four strikeouts over 1.2 scoreless innings in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Reds. He didn't allow any hits but walked two. The 29-year-old southpaw notched multiple whiffs for the fourth time in 10 September appearances. Lyons did give up an earned run in back-to-back outings last weekend versus the Cubs for the first time since early July, but he's enjoyed a solid September in which he's logged two victories, converted two save opportunities and posted a trio of holds. His 2.60 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 14 holds and 63 strikeouts over 52 innings this season continue to keep him viable in deeper formats.

    • Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Earns 10th-inning save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lyons recorded the last two outs (including a strikeout) of the 10th inning Tuesday in Cincinnati for his third save. He only gets save chances here and there, and in fact Lyons wasn't going to come out and pitch at all until Juan Nicasio started showing signs of blowing the game. The lefty may not see many more save opportunities this year, but he's developed into a quality back-of-the-bullpen asset for the Cardinals.

    • Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Takes first loss Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lyons (4-1) took the loss in Sunday's 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Cubs, allowing an earned run on one hit and a hit batsman. Lyons got into trouble right from the start, opening the seventh by hitting Anthony Rizzo and allowing a single to the pinch-hitting Javier Baez. That put him on the hook when Rizzo eventually crossed the plate on Jason Heyward's RBI single after Lyons had exited. The outing was the second consecutive in which the southpaw had given up an earned run -- a rarity, considering he'd put together a 20-appearance scoreless streak that stretched between July 7 and Sept. 1. Despite the recent stumbles, he boasts a solid 2.72 ERA and 1.11 WHIP along with a 58:17 K:BB.

    • Lyons gave up two hits and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to notch his second save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Padres. Despite the fact that Seung Hwan Oh hasn't pitched since Sept. 2, it was Lyons who got the call in a save situation Wednesday, picking up his second career save and first since mid-June -- and that one was of the three-inning, long-relief variety. The Cards' closer situation has been in flux all season, but Lyons' impressive second-half numbers (0.44 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, 26:6 K:BB in 20.1 innings) may have made him the latest contender for the job.
