Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Outrighted off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons was outrighted to the Yankees' alternate training site Friday.

Lyons' only big-league outing of the year was a disaster, as he allowed four runs in just 1.2 innings of work against Toronto on Wednesday. Miguel Yajure was recalled in a corresponding move.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Contract selected by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons' contract was selected by the Yankees on Tuesday.

Lyons has spent the entire season at the alternate training site, but he'll join the active roster for the first time in 2020 after right-hander Michael King was optioned to the alternate training site. It's unclear whether he'll remain with the team during a potential postseason run. The southpaw is likely to take on a low-leverage bullpen role.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Reassigned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons was reassigned to the Yankees' alternate training site Tuesday.

Lyons had a shot at making the team's Opening Day roster while competing in spring training and summer camp, but he'll begin the season at alternate camp instead. The southpaw recorded a 6.39 ERA and 17:5 K:BB over 12.2 innings with the Pirates and Yankees last season.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Invited to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons has been named to the Yankees' 60-man player pool.

Lyons was competing for a bullpen spot prior to the suspension of spring training, and he'll resume that battle when summer camp gets underway. The southpaw impressed in Grapefruit League play, racking up seven strikeouts in 4.1 scoreless innings.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Could make club if rosters expand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons would be an option for the Yankees' bullpen if MLB expands rosters at the start of the season, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.

Lyons signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees in January and was not expected to break camp with the club. However, the southpaw pitched well this spring, hurling 4.1 scoreless innings and racking up seven strikeouts. That performance, along with Lyons' experience and left-handedness, could tilt the scales in his favor should MLB opt to expand rosters, as is widely expected.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Rejoins Yankees on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons agreed to a minor-league contract with the Yankees earlier this month, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

Lyons will return to the Yankees organization after being outrighted off the 40-man roster in November, with his deal likely including an invite to big-league spring training. The lefty reliever saw action in 14 MLB games between the Pirates and Yankees in 2019, giving up nine earned runs on 13 hits and five walks while striking out 17 in 12.2 innings.

Tyler Lyons: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons elected free agency Monday rather than accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre.

The 31-year-old threw 12.2 major-league innings last season, first with the Pirates and then with the Yankees after joining the latter team on a minor-league deal in mid-August. He finished with a 6.39 ERA, though he did at least strike out 31.5 percent of opposing batters.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Makes playoff roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons has made the Yankees' ALDS roster.

Lyons threw 8.2 innings for the Yankees in September, posting a modest 4.15 ERA but also a strong 12:2 K:BB. He could be called on to shut down the Twins' lefty hitters.

Yankees' Tyler Lyons: Headed to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyons signed a major-league contract and had his contract selected by the Yankees on Sunday.

Lyons previously had a minor-league contract with the Pirates before latching on with the Yankees on another minor-league deal in mid-August. He's worked effectively in Triple-A this season, racking up a 3.22 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 60 strikeouts across 50.1 innings. He figures to serve as bullpen depth for the big-league club to close out the season.

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 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 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.

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.

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 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 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.
