Astros Send Jordan Lyles Back To The Minors

In a corresponding move to the activation of Jordan Schafer from the disabled list, Houston has elected to move young starting pitcher Jordan Lyles back to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

I can’t see him making too many starts down there, considering he’s rapidly approaching his should-be cut-off point for innings pitched this season. What’s the point of wasting his arm in a bunch of meaningless games?

Lyles has suffered enough already with his prolonged pursuit of career win number one. He got it, now let him rest.

Meanwhile, Schafer has indeed joined the team and will bat lead-off on Monday night in Colorado!
