2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

In his first season in the big leagues, Lyons posted a 4.75 ERA and struggled both as a starter and reliever while bouncing between Triple-A and the majors. He's still just 26 and his xFIP (3.84) suggests that he pitched better than his initial numbers indicate, but he's likely to serve as organizational depth for the Cardinals in 2014 probably working in long relief out of the bullpen. The Cardinals will likely have three pitchers ahead of Lyons competing for the fifth spot in their rotation, so Lyons would need some injuries and excellent pitching to make his way into the rotation.
