Astros | Jordan Lyles a work in progress

Houston Astros SP Jordan Lyles said he was throwing mostly fastballs and changeups in his outing Friday, March 8, in which he allowed seven hits and six runs in just two-thirds of an inning. "The past few years I've had a tendency to dip my shoulders a little bit and I was working on staying back a little more," he said. "It was good work. I understand why they came and got me this early. There's no need for me to throw as many pitches as I did in one inning. I wasn't upset about that, and it gives me a chance to get work in at my own pace." Lyles is 0-3 with a 25.20 ERA this spring in five innings over three starts, but he said he's not concerned.
