BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan Lyles -- Is any amount of his solid performance reliable? Curious if I should trade him in my Dynasty League while the gettin's good.
(Victor from Dumfries)
I own him in a few places and I don't trust him any further than I can throw him. I don't care how many starts in a row he does this for, I'm never starting him in Coors--but for now, I'm starting him on the road every time. (Bret Sayre)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan Lyles improved performance ... its because he finally has a solid infield defense behind him, yes?
(dianagram from VORGville)
I don't know if I'd attribute it 100 percent to an improved infield defense, but good gloves always help. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jordan Lyles worth picking up in this week's supplemental draft? He would just be depth to avoid Pitcher-AAA.
(GaryJohnson from The Beach)
Lyles was one of our targets on the recent mock supplemental, and we support him as a target--not unanimously, but particularly if you're looking for SP depth rather than immediate needs in the bullpen. As with any Rockies pitcher, he'll be worth more to you in the weeks they're traveling. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Help! I have Team 6 in NL All Stars, a 2-time defending division champ. In my quest to try to win the title last year (falling just short), I traded away many of my draft picks for this year. That meant that I wasn't able to draft much depth this year, and what depth I was able to draft (or keep), and whom I was counting on (hoping) to play in the majors are not (George Kottaras, Tommy La Stella, Oscar Tavares, Wilmer Flores, Tony Abreu) or are injured (Carlos Quentin with his annual injury, Josh Johnson). All of this leaves me with exactly one C, two 1B, one 2B, one part-time 3B, one SS, four OFers, five SPs (plus Thornburg), and five SRs. I have three SPs that are in the minors or should pitch later this year (TJ surgery-all Padres) and the aforementioned players languishing in the minors. I'm still competitive (above .500) and wish to remain so this year. What should I be looking for in the upcoming supps? I'd like another SP, but the best two available are Jorge de la Rosa & Jordan Lyles. I don't trust either. Or should I just try to eliminate all the AAA appearances by infielder and outfielder and draft accordingly?
(Mark68 from A Mile High)
We'd probably go with the best SP with one pick and the best middle infielder with the second since a sixth starter can be used regardless and middle infield depth is one of the most painful places to see AAA show up on the weekly results. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts about Jordan Lyles 2 and oh start?
(Drifter from Long Branch)
(Insert snarky comment about W's here)
I think that he was facing two of the lowest offenses in the game - Miami and the Chicago Sox. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Drop Hellickson for R.A. Dickey or Jordan Lyles?
(Scout from the Diamond)
Sure. I'd try Dickey first, despite his annoying inconsistency. (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan Lyles' recent breakout (1.67 ERA over last six starts); real, illusion, or somewhere in the middle?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
obviously somewhere in the middle is the safest pick. I've liked him from the get-go. Now that he's got some big league innings under his belt he is probably better equipped to take advantage of his five pitch mix, led by that lovely power sinker. He should be a solid mid-rotation guy for the Astros for a while. (Harry Pavlidis)
2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan Lyles just tossed a shutout against a pretty solid Brewers lineup yesterday, with his fastball regularly hitting 94-95 MPH. How is his secondary stuff? Do you see his potential being better than a #3 now that his velocity is up as much as it is?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Good question. Unfortunately, I wouldn't consider myself qualified to answer the question about his secondary stuff. I hate to deflect, but you'd get a much more informative answer from our loaded prospect/scouting staff. As far as the added velocity goes, it should without question benefit him. Setting his ceiling above a number three starter is being a bit too ambitious. A middle of the rotation arm is a valuable thing, but ones and twos don't grow on trees. His significant jump in groundball rate is promising, but even with the jump in velocity, he has just 10 whiffs in 181 pitches thrown in his last two starts. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-09-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Recently Jordan Lyles has been hitting 94-96 MPH on the radar gun with fairly regular consistency. Is he a breakout candidate for next year? What's his realistic ceiling at this point, considering that bump in velocity and his age?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Lyles was kind of rushed to the majors as a 21-year-old last year after only 16 starts in Triple-A and 20 in Double-A, so it's not surprising that it's taking him a while to settle in. He's definitely on the list of breakout candidates for next season, but his upside is more of a mid-rotation starter than an ace. It doesn't help that Minute Maid Park punishes pitchers for mistakes, so Lyles will need to work on keeping the ball in the yard to take that next step. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who on their 2012 Opening Day 25-man roster will still be with the club the next time the Astros make the playoffs?
(Kyle from (St. Paul, MN))
The only player I'd even hazard a guess on is Jordan Lyles, and even then, it's quite possible he starts the year in the minors. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-02-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Jordan Lyles be a perennial innings-eater with low ERA?
(josh from VA)
He can be a perennial innings-eater with a average to slightly below-average ERA. And that is IMMENSELY valuable. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Given Jordan Lyles's success this year, do you think he figures into the Houston rotation next year?
(Lyles from Houston)
Well, if Brian Moehler has figured into their rotations recently, I don't see why not. Let him pitch in spring training, and take it from there. Maybe he isn't in the rotation at the onset of the season but he could be there by the summer. The Astros finally seem to understand what they need to do, and keeping someone that could develop more at the major league level, in the minors, is not progressive or helpful to the organization. Then again, he should be close to ready -- we don't want another Homer Bailey situation. (Eric Seidman)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why no love for Jordan Lyles? Is he the only thing us Astros fans have to look forward to, or is JD Martinez legit?
(Lastros from Houston, TX)
Not very excited about Martinez, unfortunately. Lyles however, I'm a big fan of. Just because I don't think a guy is a Top prospect in ALL OF BASEBALL, doesn't mean I'm dinging him. (Kevin Goldstein)
