The Houston Astros acquired OF Dexter Fowler and a player to be named from the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Dec. 3, in exchange for SP Jordan Lyles and OF Brandon Barnes.
Fantasy Tip: Fowler's value doesn't change all that much with the move to Houston, where he'll start in center field. Lyles and Barnes are merely NL-only fodder. Lyles has room to grow, but Coors Field will negate any upside he has left. Barnes is more of a fourth outfield type that might struggle to find consistent playing time, like he did in Houston.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter announced Tuesday, May 14, that SP Jordan Lyles will slide up a day to pitch Friday, May 17, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Porter wants to break up his left-handed starters, and the scheduled off day Thursday, May 16, allows him to do that.

The Houston Astros recalled SPs Jordan Lyles and Dallas Keuchel from Triple-A Oklahoma City Thursday, May 2.

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.

The Houston Astros optioned SPs Jordan Lyles and John Ely to Triple-A Oklahoma City Wednesday, March 20. Ps Alex White, Brad Peacock, Edgar G. Gonzalez and Erik Bedard are now battling for the final two spots in the starting rotation. Gonzalez is likely to be used in long relief. Lyles had given up 36 hits and 23 earned runs in just 11 2/3 spring innings.
Fantasy Tip: Lyles was working on some things this spring as he matures as a pitcher. Don't write him off after he made significant command gains at the end of last season. He'll be back. Peacock is probably the most intriguing pitcher in the competition for a roster spot and should be given a look in deep NL leagues.

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.
