Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Latches on with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees on Thursday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

Lyons was recently released from his minor-league deal with the Pirates, but it didn't take long for him to find a new team. The 31-year-old had a 3.31 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 55:16 K:BB over 45.2 innings at Triple-A, and he'll remain at that level with his new organization.

Pirates' Tyler Lyons: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Lyons was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh on Thursday, and after failing to draw interest while on the waiver wire, he's accepted an assignment at Triple-A, where he's posted a 3.18 ERA with 12 punchouts over 11.1 innings this season.

Pirates' Tyler Lyons: Dropped from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates designated Lyons for assignment Thursday.

The 31-year-old lost his roster spot after he was blown up for five runs on six hits and three walks over four innings in his three relief appearances since joining the Pirates on May 4. He'll be cycled out for another reliever in right-hander Montana DuRapau.

Pirates' Tyler Lyons: Contract purchased by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons' contract was purchased by the Pirates on Saturday.

Lyons spent parts of six seasons in the major leagues with the Cardinals, recording a respectable 4.09 ERA. He struggled significantly last season, posting an 8.64 ERA in 16.2 innings. He'll take the roster spot which had belonged to Jameson Taillon, who hit the injured list with a flexor strain in a corresponding move. A move to open up a 40-man roster spot has not yet been announced.

Pirates' Tyler Lyons: Poor spring continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons allowed five runs on three hits and one walk while recording only one out during Tuesday's spring game against the Twins.

Lyons entered for the top of the ninth inning during a one-run game and managed one out, which was a sac fly by the final batter he faced. The 31-year-old has given up nine runs on nine hits over five innings this spring after signing a minor-league deal with the Pirates in January.

Pirates' Tyler Lyons: Joins Pirates on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Lyons had an abysmal 2018 season with the Cardinals, posting a 8.64 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 19:8 K:BB over 16.2 innings. The 30-year-old was actually a solid bullpen piece the previous two seasons with a 3.09 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 10.1 K/9, and the Pirates will undoubtedly hope he can regain that form in 2019.

August 4, 2018 05:24 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

Lyons missed six weeks with an elbow strain and struggled for the Cardinals with a 8.64 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and 19:8 K:BB over 16 innings. The 30-year-old will head to the Redbirds with the hope of rejoining the big-league club later this season if he can make significant improvements while in the minors.

Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons was designated for assignment by St. Louis on Friday.

Lyons was cast off the 40-man roster as the Cardinals made a slew of moves to reshape their bullpen. Through 27 appearances this year, Lyons has posted an unsightly 8.64 ERA and 1.92 WHIP. After coming back a couple weeks ago from an elbow injury, he still wasn't able to find a rhythm, allowing seven earned runs across three innings of work.

July 13, 2018 12:20 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Reinstated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday, Rob Rains of Stlsportspage.com reports.

Lyons will be available out of the bullpen for Friday's series opener in Cincinnati after missing the past six weeks with an elbow strain. That injury came on the heels of a back issue that forced him to miss a couple weeks in May, so Lyons has only appeared in 22 games with the Cardinals this year. Over 13.2 innings of relief, he's logged a 5.93 ERA and 1.61 WHIP.

Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Making notable progress in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Matheny is pleased with the progress Lyons (elbow) is making in his rehab assignment, Max Gelman of MLB.com reports.

Matheny described Lyons' progress as just a bit behind that of fellow reliever Luke Gregerson, who's logged more innings overall at the minor-league level. Lyons has made two appearances with the Redbirds during his current stint, firing a pair of perfect frames in the process. Judging from Matheny's comments, it appears the team envisions the southpaw putting in at least one more outing before being activated.

Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Strikes out side for Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) fired a perfect fifth inning in Triple-A Memphis' win over Omaha on Sunday, striking out the side.

That's two impressive rehab efforts for Lyons, who got through his one frame on 13 pitches. The southpaw may still be afforded at least one more rehab appearance, but his elbow appears to be back at full strength if his first pair of minor-league outings is any indication.

July 7, 2018 09:04 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Scoreless inning in first rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) threw a scoreless eighth inning and was credited with a hold in Triple-A Memphis' win over Omaha on Friday.

Lyons ultimately threw a total of 13 pitches, a good first test for his recovering elbow. The southpaw will mark a calendar month on the disabled list Sunday, and it appears likely he'll log at least one more rehab appearance at the minor-league level after such an extended absence.

Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Throwing bullpen Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Saturday and will embark on a rehab assignment next week, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

It's been a positive week for Lyons, who also extended his throwing distance out to 90 feet last Monday. Assuming all goes well with Saturday's session, the southpaw should be back in game action in a rehab capacity at some point next week.

June 26, 2018 12:24 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Extends throwing distance Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) played catch from 90 feet out on Monday afternoon, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw was thought to be nearing a bullpen session, and although Monday's activity didn't qualify as such, it was still an encouraging step. If he remains free of setbacks, Lyons should head out on a minor-league rehab assignment within the next couple weeks.

June 21, 2018 12:24 AM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Bullpen session forthcoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) has resumed his throwing program and is slated to throw a bullpen session in the coming days, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Lyons was able to hit his target of starting a throwing program earlier this week, and it appears he's progressed through it without setbacks thus far. The aforementioned bullpen session may be followed by a minor-league rehab appearance, although it remains to be seen if the team will deem that a necessity in Lyons' case.

June 16, 2018 04:04 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: To begin throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (elbow) is slated to begin a throwing program next week according to general manager Michael Girsch, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw has been on the disabled list since June 8, so he'll resume throwing approximately 10 days after that point if all goes according to plan. Lyons has had a rough go of it on the health front since early May, as he also had a previous disabled list stint due to a back injury.

June 8, 2018 04:44 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals placed Lyons on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a left elbow sprain.

Lyons has made only one appearance since the start of June, tossing a scoreless inning against the Marlins on Tuesday. The severity of the injury is unclear at this point, but the diagnosis of a sprain makes it seem unlikely the 30-year-old will be able to return when eligible June 16.

May 27, 2018 02:48 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Grabs eighth hold in DL return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (back) grabbed his eighth hold in a win over the Pirates on Saturday, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout over one-third of an inning.

The southpaw threw 10 pitches after being activated from the disabled list earlier in the day. Lyons has now generated scoreless appearances in six of his last seven trips to the mound, a stretch in which he's also notched a win and recorded a pair of holds.

May 26, 2018 05:12 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: Activated ahead of Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (back) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Saturday.

As expected, Lyons is back with the Cardinals after missing the past two weeks with a back strain. The 30-year-old compiled a mediocre 6.17 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 11.2 innings prior to landing on the shelf, so he may need to prove himself again before being trusted in a high-leverage role. Greg Holland (hip) was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move.

May 25, 2018 06:04 PM
Cardinals' Tyler Lyons: May not return for Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons (back) was expected to return from the disabled list for Friday's game against the Pirates, but may not be activated until after the game, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

The delay would be procedural move more than anything, as it would allow the team to make a roster move after John Gant's spot start Friday. Regardless, Lyons has already rejoined the team in Pittsburgh and should be reinstated to the 25-man roster in the next few days.
