  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Downed by Tigers

    Lyles (2-3) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks over 5.2 innings as the Orioles fell 4-2 to the Tigers. He struck out six.

    The six whiffs tied his season high, but so did the three free passes and it was overall another mediocre outing for Lyles. The veteran right-hander has a 4.38 ERA through seven starts and 39 innings, but it comes with a 1.51 WHIP and subpar 18.5 percent strikeout rate.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Lasts 7.1 innings against Royals

    Lyles allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out five in 7.1 innings during Sunday's loss in the first game of a doubleheader against the Royals. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Lyles had to wait two extra days to make his start after the Orioles' last two games were postponed, but he had his longest start of the season in Sunday's matinee. The right-hander allowed just one extra-base hit, but the Royals were able to generate some runs to force Lyles to settle for the no-decision. He's lasted at least 4.2 innings in every start this year and tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Detroit on Friday.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Saturday's game postponed

    Lyles and the Orioles won't play Saturday against the Orioles after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

    Lyles will now start two days later than expected after the Orioles had back-to-back games postponed. Lyles is slated to start in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday, while Bruce Zimmermann takes the mound in the nightcap and Tyler Wells starts Monday, Steve Melewski of reports.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Start rained out

    Lyles won't start Friday against the Royals as planned, as the game has been rained out, Anne Rogers of reports.

    More rain is in the forecast Saturday, so Friday's game has been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Sunday. Lyles is scheduled to start Saturday's game against Kansas City, Roch Kubatko of reports.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Grabs second victory

    Lyles (2-2) earned the win after giving up one run on seven hits with six strikeouts and three walks across six innings during Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    The veteran right-hander generated 13 swinging strikes and limited Boston to one run despite allowing multiple baserunners to reach in five of his six innings. It was the first time this season Lyles completed six full frames, and the six strikeouts also tied his season high. The 31-year-old has a 4.50 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 21:10 K:BB across 26 innings this year, and his next start tentatively lines up for Friday against the Royals.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Crushed in loss

    Lyles (1-2) took the loss, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in 4.2 innings in a 12-8 defeat Tuesday against the Yankees.

    After cruising through the first two innings, Lyles gave up home runs in each of the next three frames as the Yankees jumped out to a 6-0 lead. After giving up a whopping 38 homers last season, he had only allowed one home run in his first three starts. That changed quickly as Anthony Rizzo tagged him twice and Joey Gallo added a long ball. Consistency has been a challenge throughout the career of the 31-year-old and continues to be the case as he's had two good and two bad starts.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Another strong start

    Lyles (1-1) allowed five hits and one walk while striking out six across five scoreless innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Lyles put together an impressive outing, as he allowed only one extra-base hit and also generated 11 swinging strikes across 89 pitches. After allowing five earned runs in his first start of the season, Lyles has surrendered allowed only run across 11.1 innings in his last two outings combined. He's currently projected to take his next turn through the rotation Tuesday at the Yankees.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Stifles Yankees in no-decision

    Lyles didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 2-1, 11-inning win over the Yankees, giving up one run on six hits and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out four.

    A third-inning RBI single by Giancarlo Stanton accounted for the only damage against Lyles, who exited the game after tossing 91 pitches (60 strikes). With John Means (elbow) now joining Dean Kremer (oblique) on the shelf, the Orioles will need as much length from Lyles as they can get, but the veteran right-hander's 5.23 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 6:5 K:BB through his first 10.1 innings this season don't offer much reason for optimism. He tentatively lines up to take the mound Wednesday in Oakland.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Struggles in season debut

    Lyles (0-1) took the loss after he pitched five innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two in Saturday's defeat against the Rays.

    The 31-year-old pitched a clean first inning, but struggled over the next two frames, surrendering all five runs over that span. Lyles struggled to keep the Rays off the basepaths, allowing 10 batters to reach base. Coming off a 2021 campaign in which he compiled a 5.15 ERA and 1.39 WHIP while starting 30 games with the Rangers, the left-hander failed to start off the 2022 season on the right foot. He is projected to be back on the mound Wednesday at home versus the Brewers.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Appointed to rotation

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Lyles will start the team's second game of the season April 9 in Tampa Bay, Zachary Silver of reports.

    Though he owns a 5.24 ERA over 182 career MLB starts between stops with the Astros, Rockies, Padres, Brewers, Pirates and Rangers, Lyles will begin the season as the Orioles' No. 2 starter due mainly to the lack of appealing alternatives in the rotation. While he was with Texas a year ago, Lyles offered little fantasy value aside from eating innings, as he surrendered an MLB-high 38 home runs en route to a 5.15 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 180 frames. The move to the historically hitter-friendly Camden Yards may not dramatically help him in limiting home runs, even though the Orioles have implemented dimension changes to their home park in an effort to make the field more favorable for pitchers.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Set to pitch Sunday

    Lyles (illness) is scheduled to pitch during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    The 31-year-old was scratched from his start Friday due to a stomach bug, and he'll return to the mound Sunday and pitch behind starter John Means. The minor delay shouldn't affect Lyles' availability for Opening Day.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Scratched from Friday start

    Lyles is dealing with an illness and will not start Friday as scheduled, Zachary Silver of reports.

    Lyles is only dealing with a stomach bug, but he is not feeling well enough to take the mound Friday. Chris Ellis will get the nod in Lyles' place.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Reaches deal with Orioles

    Lyles agreed to a one-year, $7 million contract with the Orioles on Wednesday that includes an $11 million club option for 2023, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Lyles spent the past two seasons with the Rangers and started in 30 of his 32 appearances last season. He had an unimpressive 5.15 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 146:56 K:BB across 180 innings, though he should have a stable rotation spot to open 2022 given Baltimore's overall lack of starting pitching. The physical exam wasn't completed before MLB initiated the lockout of the players Wednesday, so the deal can't become official until after a new CBA is reached.

  • Rangers' Jordan Lyles: Masterful in season finale

    Lyles (10-13) allowed one run on two hits and one walk with eight strikeouts through seven innings, picking up the win in Saturday's 7-2 victory over Cleveland.

    Entering play, Lyles led the American League in hits and earned runs allowed while also leading all of baseball in home runs conceded. For seven innings you forgot about all of that, as the right-hander carved up Cleveland. Although he does have some unsightly numbers attached to his name, this season was pretty solid for the journeyman. He ate up 180 innings for a rebuilding Texas team and emerged healthy. He might not be flashy, but he figures to have a market when he hits free agency this offseason.

  • Rangers' Jordan Lyles: Breaks down late

    Lyles (9-13) allowed three runs on seven hits and one walk with four strikeouts through 6.2 innings, taking the loss in Saturday's 3-2 defeat to the Orioles.

    Lyles worked six shutout innings Saturday night, but he couldn't tame the Baltimore bats in the seventh. A walk, an RBI double and a two-run homer by Kelvin Gutierrez spelled an unfortunate end to an otherwise stellar performance. Regardless, the rubber-armed Lyles has been a reliable innings-eater for the Rangers this season. He's slated to make his final appearance of the year next Saturday against Cleveland.

  • Rangers' Jordan Lyles: Falters in loss

    Lyles (9-12) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out three across 3.2 innings, taking the loss against the White Sox on Sunday.

    Lyles fired three shutout innings to start the game. However, he fell apart in the fourth inning, allowing five runs while recording just two outs. He allowed a home run to Yasmani Grandal in that inning. The 30-year-old has a 5.36 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with 134 strikeouts in 166.1 innings this season.

  • Rangers' Jordan Lyles: Blanks Astros over seven innings

    Lyles (9-11) earned the win against the Astros on Tuesday after pitching seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out seven.

    Lyles entered Tuesday ranked last in baseball among qualified pitchers in ERA and WHIP, and he was ranked near the bottom in strikeout rate. However, he had his way against one of the top offenses in the league. The 30-year-old had not blanked an opponent during a start all season and was able to reach seven innings for a second straight time, despite his last appearance coming as a reliever. Lyles has now picked up a win in four of his last five outings and owns a 5.20 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 131:51 K:BB over 162.2 innings. He's lined up for a road matchup against the Yankees at the beginning of next week.

  • Rangers' Jordan Lyles: Plugged back into rotation

    Lyles is listed as the Rangers' starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Astros.

    For just the second time in 28 appearances on the campaign, Lyles was deployed as a reliever in his most recent outing Sept. 7 in Arizona, and he delivered what was one of his best efforts of a rough season. While piggybacking Spencer Howard, Lyles tied his season high with seven innings, and he permitted only one run on three hits and two walks en route to capturing his eighth win of the season. Due to the heavy workload in relief, Lyles will be stretched out enough to handle a traditional starting role Tuesday, but expecting a repeat performance is a tough ask. Among the 37 pitchers who have covered at least 150 innings this season, Lyles ranks last in ERA (5.43) and WHIP (1.44) and 32nd in strikeout rate (18.4 percent).
