  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: First to double-digit losses

    Lyles (0-10) took the loss Wednesday as the Royals fell 6-1 to the Marlins, coughing up five runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out two.

    The veteran right-hander gave the Kansas City bullpen a bit of a breather, but that's about the only silver lining to take away from this performance. Lyles tossed 56 of 85 pitches for strikes while becoming the first pitcher in the league to reach 10 losses -- no one else has more than seven -- and he also leads the majors with 18 homers allowed. He'll carry a 6.84 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 55:25 K:BB through 73.2 innings into his next start, likely to come at home early next week against the Reds.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Fans eight in no-decision

    Lyles allowed one run on two hits and a walk over five innings in Friday's loss to the Rockies. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

    Lyles produced what was easily his best start of the year but got no run support. The 32-year-old forced a season-high 14 whiffs on 74 pitches but his record remains at 0-9 on the year while he still sports an unsightly 6.89 ERA through 66.2 frames. Lyles is currently lined up to start in Miami next week.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Winless streak continues

    Lyles (0-9) took the loss Friday as the Royals were toppled 12-10 by the Nationals, giving up five runs on six hits and three walks over five-plus innings. He struck out two.

    The veteran right-hander was nursing a 2-1 lead through five innings, but both offenses erupted in the second half of the game, with Lyles getting chased by the three-run shot off the bat of Corey Dickerson. Lyles has served up multiple homers in seven of his 11 starts this season, getting tagged for 16 long balls over 61.2 innings in total to fuel his ghastly 7.30 ERA. He'll try to stop the bleeding in his next outing, likely to come next week at home against the Rockies.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Serves up five runs in loss

    Lyles (0-8) took the loss Saturday, allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits and three walks over five innings during a 5-1 loss to the White Sox. He struck out five.

    Lyles has allowed four or more earned runs in eight of his last nine starts and holds a 7.15 ERA across his first 56.2 innings with the Royals. The veteran's 1.34 WHIP is consistent with previous years and suggests he could turn a corner soon, but he's never been considered an ace. Despite the struggles, Lyles is locked into Kansas City's rotation for the foreseeable future after signing a two-year, $17 million deal this offseason.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Hit hard for seven runs

    Lyles (0-7) took another loss Sunday, allowing seven runs on four hits and three walks over 2.1 innings against the White Sox. He struck out two.

    Sunday was easily Lyles' worst outing of the season. He let up one run through the first two frames on a Christian Yelich homer and then completely fell apart in the third. He faced seven batters in the inning, allowing three walks, two singles and a double, which amounted to another four runs for the Brewers before he was pulled. Two additional runs were charged to him after Jose Cuas allowed both inherited runners to score off a three-run blast by Brice Turang. Lyles' velocity noticeably dropped down to 88.8 MPH after he had been averaging 90.7 with his fastball for the year. He has allowed at least one homer in seven of his nine starts this year and now owns a 7.14 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 38:17 K:BB over 51.2 innings. He's lined up for a tentative start against the White Sox next weekend.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Takes loss in complete game

    Lyles (0-6) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits over nine innings in a 4-2 loss against the White Sox. He struck out six.

    Lyles needed 112 pitches to go the distance Tuesday. He had six clean innings, but the White Sox cashed in with a couple of homers and two-hit innings to put up four runs. The 32-year-old has a 6.20 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 49.1 innings on the season.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Has another rough outing

    Lyles gave up eight runs (six earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out three batters over five innings against Baltimore on Thursday. He did not factor in the decision.

    About the only thing that went right for Lyles on Thursday was that opposing starter Grayson Rodriguez struggled just as badly, allowing Lyles to escape a loss. The veteran right-hander gave up all eight of his runs over the first three innings, with half of the tallies coming on a pair of two-run homers. Lyles has surrendered 13 earned runs across nine innings over his past two starts, pushing his season ERA to 6.69.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Remains winless

    Lyles (0-5) allowed seven runs on seven hits and four walks over four innings Friday, striking out four and taking a loss against Minnesota.

    Things got off to a poor start when Max Kepler took Lyles deep in the first inning. Most of the damage came in the fourth inning however, headlined by Jorge Polanco's three-run shot. Lyles has allowed at least four runs in four of his six starts this year and is now sporting an ugly 6.11 ERA through 35.1 frames. He's expected to face the Orioles at home next week.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Handed fourth loss

    Lyles (0-4) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk over six innings against the Angels. He struck out five.

    Lyles has gotten off to a rough start to the 2023 season, having allowed three or more runs in four of his five starts while allowing seven home runs. Three of those long balls came in the sixth inning of Sunday's game, when Taylor Ward, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani hit consecutive solo homers to give the Angles a 4-2 lead. However, Lyles had found a rhythm prior to the nightmare sixth inning, having retired 14 of his previous 15 batters before getting shelled. Lyles is slated for another start Friday against Minnesota, a team he held to two runs in 5.1 innings in his first start of the campaign.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Eight solid innings in loss

    Lyles (0-3) took the loss Monday, allowing four runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks over eight innings during a 4-0 loss to the Rangers. He struck out three.

    Lyles served up a one-out, three-run homer to Josh Jung in the first, but all three runs were unearned due to back-to-back errors to start the game. The lone earned run on Lyles' ledger came in the third via a solo shot from Marcus Semien. Despite the rocky start, Lyles was able to settle down and got through a season-high eight frames against a good Rangers offense. Through four outings (25.1 innings), Lyles sports a 4.26 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP with a 18:7 K:BB.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Allows four runs in no-decision

    Lyles did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Rangers, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran right-hander appeared headed for his third straight loss to open the campaign as Kansas City trailed 4-2 after seven innings, but the offense rallied over the final frames to force a 10th inning. Lyles has a 5.19 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB across 17.1 innings through his first three starts of the season.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Takes second loss

    Lyles (0-2) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out nine across 5.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Lyles was hit hard throughout the start, as he served up two home runs and five total extra-base hits while allowing the Blue Jays to score at least one run in four of the six innings he pitched. Lyles did rack up nine strikeouts, which matched his highest total since 2019. Through two starts in the current campaign, he has a 4.91 ERA but a more impressive 11:2 K:BB across 11 frames.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Allows one earned run in loss

    Lyles (0-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks over 5.1 innings, taking the loss versus Twins on Saturday.

    It was far from a dominant effort for the Lyles, but he was able to get out of the jams he created and pitched well enough to win if he would have received some run support. The Royals provided none. The right-hander is expected to be back on the mound next week for a tough home matchup against the Blue Jays.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Settling in with new team

    Lyles allowed two hits and struck out two over three innings in Friday's Cactus League game versus the Padres.

    Lyles has struck out six over eight innings this spring while allowing two earned runs, six hits and a walk. The right-hander was an effective innings-eater with the Orioles in 2022, posting a 4.42 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 144:52 K:BB across 179 innings. He should be a lock for the Royals' rotation after signing a two-year deal in December, though his ratios will likely continue to be just okay across the board.

  • Royals' Jordan Lyles: Signs two-year deal with Royals

    Lyles signed a two-year, $17 million deal with the Royals on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Lyles will be getting pretty good money for a 32-year-old with a 5.10 career ERA. His 4.42 ERA last season for the Orioles beat his career mark by a significant margin but still wasn't particularly strong, especially in a year in which offense dropped across the league. Lyles' 18.6 percent strikeout rate in 2022 was in line with his 17.6 percent career figure, so don't expect him to become a different pitcher any time soon. He should at least be able to eat a healthy amount of innings for the Royals, as his 62 starts over the past two seasons tie him for 13th in the league. Toss in his pitcher-friendly home park and relatively weak division and Lyles becomes a viable end-game option in deeper formats despite his rather bland numbers.

  • Jordan Lyles: Becomes free agent

    The Orioles declined Lyles' $11 million team option for 2023 on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Lyles will receive a $1 million buyout as part of the Orioles' decision to decline his option, so he'll take home $7 million in total for his lone season in Baltimore. The 32-year-old right-hander wasn't a particularly enticing fantasy asset in 2022 with a 4.42 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 11.9 K-BB%, but he brought value to the Orioles as a competent innings eater, as he covered 179 innings over 32 starts. Baltimore could revisit bringing Lyles back for 2023 at a more team-friendly price, but he might be a candidate to move to the bullpen once the Orioles are ready to clear spots in the rotation for pitching prospects such as Grayson Rodriguez and DL Hall.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Not starting Wednesday

    Lyles isn't scheduled to start either game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    The 31-year-old's final turn through the rotation lined up for Wednesday, but Mike Baumann and Spenser Watkins will instead start the final two games of the campaign for Baltimore. Lyles has been a solid innings eater for the Orioles this year with a 4.42 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 144:52 K:BB across 179 innings (32 starts), and that's where his numbers will finish for 2022 barring an appearance out of the bullpen.
