2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lyles opened the 2018 season in a relief role for the Padres, posting a 3.66 ERA and 16:7 K:BB across 19.2 innings before replacing Robbie Erlin in the starting rotation in May. The right-hander was wildly inconsistent as a starter, allowing four or more runs in four of his eight starts while allowing just four total runs in his other four starts. Forearm tightness sent Lyles to the disabled list at the end of June and forced him to miss more than a month. Once activated, he was sent to the bullpen, where he made a trio of appearances before being traded to the Brewers in August. He increased the usage of his curveball and fastball with Milwaukee, which resulted in an improved ERA and strikeout rate. Lyles signed with Pittsburgh after the Brewers declined his option. He'll compete for a rotation spot, and both Lyles and the Pirates believe his changes can translate to success as a starter. Read Past Outlooks
