Astros | Jordan Lyles to start Thursday

Houston Astros SP Jordan Lyles will make the start Thursday, May 2, according to manager Bo Porter.

Fantasy Tip: Lyles will take the spot of Brad Peacock, who was banished to the bullpen for the time being. It's unclear if Lyles will stick in the rotation, but he'll probably be given an opportunity to, at least in the short term. Lyles wasn't exactly impressing at Triple-A Oklahoma City this year, and he's still in the process of growing as a pitcher. Unless he continues to build on his ground-ball prowess in conjuction with solid command, he won't be more than a streaming option in deep mixed leagues.
