Lyles didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 15-14 extra-innings win over the Nationals, giving up five runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings while striking out four.
Juan Soto and Adam Eaton both took the right-hander deep, and he needed 83 pitches (52 strikes) to record just 12 outs -- a fitting beginning to a wild 14-inning affair that wrecked ratios on both staffs. Lyles will take a 4.96 ERA and 108:44 K:BB through 103.1 innings into his next outing Friday, at home against Arizona.
Lyles (7-8) yielded one run on three hits and four walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out nine and taking the loss against Texas.
Lyles held Texas off the board until a seventh-inning sacrifice fly. He was on his way to going 3-0 in three starts with Milwaukee since being acquired from the Pirates, but his offense couldn't get anything going against Mike Minor. The nine punchouts were his highest since May 12. In 17 innings since the trade, the 28-year-old right-hander owns a 1.59 ERA while allowing just two long balls. Lyles will take the mound in Washington next Sunday.
Lyles (7-7) allowed three runs (one earned) on two hits with two walks and one strikeout across five innings while earning a victory against the Pirates on Monday.
As he returned to PNC Park, Lyles once again ran into home-run trouble. He gave up 12 homers in his last eight starts with the Pirates before getting traded last week, and he tossed up two more home runs Tuesday, though it led to just three runs and only one earned. Behind a strong offensive performance from the Brewers, Lyles was able to beat his old club, improving his record back to .500. He also has a 4.97 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 95 strikeouts in 92.1 innings this season. Lyles will start again Saturday at home against the Rangers.
Lyles is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Pirates.
After serving up 12 home runs in his final eight starts with the Pirates before being traded to the Brewers, Lyles tightened up his command in his Milwaukee debut last week. The spacious confines in Oakland surely helped Lyles' cause as he tossed five innings of one-run ball, but he could run into more trouble while returning to his old stomping grounds in Pittsburgh in his second start with his new club. Over his 45.2 innings at PNC Park this season, Lyles submitted a 5.52 ERA while allowing opposing hitters to post a .386 wOBA.
Lyles (6-7) earned the win Wednesday after holding the A's to one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings.
Making his first start with the Brewers following a trade from the Pirates on July 29, Lyles turned in a solid performance without issuing any walks or home runs to pick up his sixth win of the season. The right-hander had previously been traded to the Brewers in 2018 to fill a relief role, but he's expected to maintain a spot in the rotation this time around. Lyles will carry a 5.15 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 94:35 K:BB into his next start Monday against his old Pirates teammates.
Manager Craig Counsell confirmed Lyles would start Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
As anticipated, Milwaukee won't waste much time to break the newly acquired right-hander into its injury-depleted rotation. Lyles' results since the All-Star break haven't been encouraging -- he's surrendered 16 runs (13 earned) on 18 hits and six walks over eight frames -- but the Brewers will probably be pleased enough if he can merely eat some innings in his team debut. The 28-year-old likely won't warrant much attention outside of NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.
Manager Craig Counsell said that he expects Lyles to start Wednesday's game in Oakland, Bryan Dee of ESPN Milwaukee reports.
Lyles was lined up to start for the Pirates on his normal four days' rest Monday before those plans were scrapped when he was dealt to the Brewers. Milwaukee will waste little time plugging Lyles into its rotation, which has been hit hard by injuries over the past couple of weeks. After submitting a 3.71 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through his first 13 starts with the Pirates, Lyles has been shelled in three of his past four turns, yielding 23 runs (20 earned) on 28 hits -- including eight home runs -- and seven walks over 12 innings.
Lyles was traded from Pittsburgh to Milwaukee on Monday in exchange for prospect Cody Ponce, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
The Brewers are replicating a trade from last season, when they acquired Lyles as a bullpen piece for the stretch run. He's likely to be a starter this time around, with Freddy Peralta pitching out of the bullpen and Brandon Woodruff (oblique), Jhoulys Chacin (lat), Jimmy Nelson (elbow) and Corbin Burnes (shoulder) all injured. Lyles' 5.36 ERA in 17 starts for Pittsburgh this season is worse than he deserves according to his peripherals, though his 4.81 FIP isn't particularly encouraging. Moving from PNC Park to Miller Park is unlikely to help bring his ERA down. Since Lyles was scheduled to start the Pirates' game Monday against the Reds, the team will now need to break in a new rotation member on short notice. According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Lyles is expected to make his Brewers debut either Wednesday or Thursday against the Athletics.
Lyles (5-7) allowed eight runs (five earned) on seven hits with one walk and three strikeouts across 1.2 innings while suffering an embarrassing defeat against the Cardinals on Wednesday.
After a 1-2-3 first inning, things just absolutely came apart during the second. The frame started with an error, but then the Cardinals posted four extra-base hits, including two homers, before Lyles recorded the first out. Ultimately, Lyles only registered a second out in the frame before getting the hook because the Pirates threw a runner out at the plate. The error did him no favors to start the inning, but that doesn't offset the right-hander having allowed six extra-base hits overall in one frame. Lyles has been a mess recently, giving up at least seven runs in three of his last four starts. He has also lost six straight decisions, as he's fallen to 5-7 with a 5.36 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 90 strikeouts in 82.1 innings. He will attempt to get out of this terrible funk Monday at the Reds.
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.
Lyles allowed seven runs on four hits, four walks and two strikeouts while completing only two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
The great start the 28-year-old had to the season is officially gone because of two horrific outings in a row against the Cubs. Lyles has yielded 14 runs and 14 hits in his last 4.2 innings across two starts versus the Cubs, losing both games. It wasn't too long ago that Lyles' ERA was below 3.00, and prior to his last two starts, his ERA sat at 3.71. It's escalated to 5.16 after these two disasters. He is 5-6 with a 1.40 WHIP, .255 batting average against and 80 strikeouts in 75 innings this season. Lyles will look to get on track at home against the Phillies next Friday.
Lyles (5-5) allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out seven across four innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cubs.
Lyles stumbled immediately, allowing a solo home run to Kris Bryant -- the third batter of the game -- in the first inning. Things didn't improve from there as he allowed two more home runs prior to being pulled with runners on first and second base in the fifth frame. The one positive from the performance was Lyles' ability to generate swings and misses: He had 14 on 78 total pitches. He enters the All-Star break with a 4.36 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 78 strikeouts across 74.1 innings.
Lyles (5-4) took the loss in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Brewers, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five.
The right-hander made a strong return from the hamstring strain that landed him on the injured list as he took the mound for the first time since June 8, but a lack of run support doomed Lyles to the loss column. He'll carry a 3.71 ERA and 71:26 K:BB through 70.1 innings into his next outing Thursday, at home against the Cubs.
Lyles (hamstring) was activated from the injured list in advance of Saturday's start against the Brewers.
Lyles had a run of excellence earlier this season but logged a 7.71 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 19:8 K:BB in 18.2 innings (four starts) prior to landing on the injured list. He went 5.1 innings (84 pitches) in a rehab start at Triple-A on June 23, so he should be able to pitch without restrictions.
Lyles (hamstring) will return from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday in Milwaukee, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Lyles has missed just over two weeks with left hamstring tightness. He recorded a solid 3.64 ERA in 12 starts before suffering the injury.
Lyles (hamstring) is expected to re-join the rotation during the team's weekend series in Milwaukee, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.
He pitched well in a rehab tilt Sunday, limiting Triple-A Pawtucket to one run on two hits in 5.1 innings. The righty threw 84 pitches, striking out seven while walking three. Prior to going on the IL, Lyle had registered a 6.93 ERA in his last three starts. Because he's allowed seven earned runs in nine innings to the Brewers in two starts this season, fantasy owners may want to consider keeping him benched this weekend in Milwaukee.
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.
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 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.
Lyles (hamstring) is expected to rejoin the Pirates' rotation next week, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Lyles landed on the injured list earlier in the week, but it sounds like his stay on the shelf will be a short one. Assuming everything goes off without a hitch during his scheduled bullpen session this weekend, Lyles could be cleared to return when first eligible (June 20).
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 Pirates have yet to announce who will replace Lyles in the rotation.
