      Pirates' Jordan Lyles: Rehab start set for Sunday

      Jordan Lyles (hamstring) will make a minor-league rehab start Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Lyles completed a four-inning simulated game earlier in the week, but he'll need at least one more tune-up before returning from the injured list. The right-hander is slated to throw six innings or 85 pitches with an undetermined affiliate, and if everything goes as planned, he could be cleared to join the big-league rotation next weekend against the Brewers. In the meantime, Steven Brault is expected to make one more spot start in place of Lyles on Sunday.

      Pirates' Jordan Lyles: Completes simulated game

      Jordan Lyles (hamstring) tossed a four-inning simulated game Tuesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.Rather than sending Lyles out on a rehab assignment, the Pittsburgh Pirates elected to keep the right-hander on hand in Pittsburgh to test out his tight left hamstring in front of the team's medical staff. Manager Clint Hurdle said afterward that Lyles' next step is "to be determined," but if his hamstring responds well to the simulated-game action, he could return from the 10-day injured list to rejoin the rotation as soon as Sunday against the Padres. Steven Brault and Mitch Keller are the other candidates to take the hill that day if Lyles needs more time to recover from the injury.

      Pirates' Jordan Lyles: Placed on injured list

      Jordan Lyles was placed on the injured list Monday with left hamstring tightness.This move comes after Lyles lasted just three innings in his most recent start Saturday against the Brewers, during which he allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five. The severity of the issue is not yet known, so it remains to be seen how long Lyles will remain sidelined for. Montana DuRapau was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding roster move. The Pittsburgh Pirates have yet to announce who will replace Lyles in the rotation.

      Pirates' Jordan Lyles: Lasts just three innings

      Jordan Lyles allowed three runs on five hits with five strikeouts and four walks across three innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Saturday.While he did yield a run per inning in this outing, Lyles departed more because of pitch count than ineffectiveness. He needed 92 pitches to get through just three frames, which is the most any starter in the league has thrown through the first three innings of a game this season. The Brewers worked deep counts the entire afternoon, and Pittsburgh Pirates pitching walked nine batters. Lyles is 5-3 with a 3.64 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 64.1 innings this season. His next start will be in Atlanta on Thursday.
