      Pirates' Jordan Lyles: Strikes out seven in no-decision

      Jordan Lyles allowed one run on seven hits with one walk and seven strikeouts across 5.2 innings during a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.After a couple of really poor starts from Lyles, this is what owners wanted to see in response. This outing stopped a two-game streak where he had allowed 14 total runs. The veteran yielded a single and double in the first inning, but after that, he barely allowed any traffic on the bases. The lone run he permitted was a solo homer. Lyles is 5-6 with a 4.91 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 87 strikeouts in 80.2 innings this season.

      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.
