Rockies | Chris Rusin starting vs. Arizona Friday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:10:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin will start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 29. In a corresponding move, SP Jordan Lyles was optioned to the minors Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin has pitched out of the bullpen to start the season, so he likely won't be stretched out enough to pitch deep into the game Friday, which is an obvious limitation to his fantasy value Friday. Additionally, he owns a 5.21 ERA through 42 career starts and will toss any home games at Coors Field. View Rusin as a desperation start in all fantasy formats until he proves otherwise. Similarly, Lyles, who owns a career 5.18 ERA through 570 1/3 innings, can be dropped in all leagues.

Rockies | COL to employ four-man rotation

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 18:57:40 -0700

The Colorado Rockies will use a four-man rotation to start the season, according to manager Walt Weiss. SPs Jorge De La Rosa, Chad Bettis, Tyler Chatwood and Jordan Lyles will occupy the rotation spots. The club isn't expected to need a fifth starter until sometime between April 14, in a game versus the San Francisco Giants, and April 16, in a game versus the Chicago Cubs. At that point, SP Jon Gray (abdomen) could be ready to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Of the four healthy starters, De La Rosa has the most fantasy value but should be viewed as nothing more than a late-round option for mixed leagues. Gray should remain stashed in dynasty and keeper formats, as well as NL-only leagues.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles to work in 'B' game

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 22:20:53 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles is scheduled to work in a minor-league spring game Wednesday, March 23.

Fantasy Tip: Lyles is penciled in to serve as the No. 4 pitcher in the team's rotation. As such he would only be worth using in deeper NL-only fantasy formats.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson placed on disabled list

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 19:09:17 -0700

The Colorado Rockies have placed OF Corey Dickerson (foot) on the 15-day disabled list due to continuing inflammation in his left foot. There is no timetable for his return but he is not expected to undergo surgery. In corresponding moves, RP Justin Miller was called up from the minors and SP Jordan Lyles (toe) was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was placed on the disabled list last month because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot and had returned to action less than a week ago. His swing was not affected but he was running at less than full speed. Look for Brandon Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) to see more playing time in Dickerson's absence.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles set for season-ending surgery

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 14:11:46 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (toe) will have season-ending surgery to repair the medial capsular ligament and capsule in his left big toe.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a starter for the game against the Miami Marlins Saturday, June 6, to be announced soon. Chris Rusin is an option. Whoever it is, though, should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation add in NL-only leagues, and potential matchup flier for FantasyScore players.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles might require surgery

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 18:22:46 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (toe) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, June 1, due to a torn toe ligament. He will visit a foot specialist Tuesday, June 2, to determine if surgery is needed to repair the tear. The team recalled P Tommy Kahnle from Class AAA Albuquerque to take his roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: With Lyles down for the count, Chris Rusin is considered the likely candidate to move into the vacant rotation spot. He is worth a speculative pick in NL-only play if you’re desperate for starting pitching, and he is also worth monitoring in FantasyScore when the matchup is favorable.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles to miss start, DL likely?

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 16:51:44 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (toe) will miss his next start after leaving the game with an injury for the third time in his last four starts Sunday, May 31. He'll also likely require a trip to the disabled list, although the team won't confirm it yet. "I tried to get out of the way and when I pushed off, I over-extended the joint," Lyles said. "Same as last start." Lyles was replaced by SP Chris Rusin, who pitched four innings without allowing an earned run, and he'd be the obvious choice to replace Lyles in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Between his injuries and poor performance, there's no reason to hang onto Lyles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) in shallow mixed leagues anymore. Rusin is worth a speculative pickup in NL-only leagues but is strictly a matchup play as a sleeper on FantasyScore if he takes Lyles' rotation spot.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles injured

Sun, 31 May 2015 15:10:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (toe) was injured in his start Sunday, May 31, and had to leave the game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Lyles left the game with an injury to his left big toe, and SP Chris Rusin took his place.

Fantasy Tip: No announcement was made whether Lyles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will have to miss any time, but monitor this situation and see what happens. Lyles has been especially brittle as of late, and that has cost him some fantasy value. Rusin didn't do a bad job in his previous outings, so he may not make a bad emergency replacement.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles pushed back

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:18:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (toe) will have his next start pushed back because of a left big toe sprain, but he will not need to go on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Lyles ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has allowed at least four runs in each of his three full starts in May, and he should be avoided at FantasyScore until he can turn things around and prove he's past his toe issue. You can drop him in shallow mixed leagues for now.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles expects to make start

Thu, 14 May 2015 05:09:59 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (hand) is expected to make his next start Monday, May 18, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Lyles ($3,500, 7.0% of your cap) is dealing with a contusion to his pitching hand, so it might affect him gripping the baseball. We'd probably steer clear on FantasyScore, despite a solid matchup.
