Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles (hand) suffered a broken bone above his left knuckle on the back of his hand Wednesday, June 4, and will head to the disabled list. Lyles was applying a tag at home plate and his hand was bent in the wrong direction. He remained in the game for four innings before exiting. "I knew something was wrong," Lyles said. "I couldn't catch the ball back from the catcher."
Fantasy Tip: The 23-year-old was quietly having a good season, but it sounds like he'll miss at least 4-6 weeks - maybe more if surgery is required. Prospect Eddie Butler has some margin for error to stick around with Lyles down. Tyler Matzek could also come up.
