Who had the best performance yesterday? None other than Jordan Lyles! The major league clubs seems to be having tree-outs for the starter on Tuesday between Aneury Rodriguez and Lyles, and Lyles bid could be all he needs to make it.

He posted a game score of 63 which is lower than what it could have been since he gave eight hits. One of those hits was to STARTING SHORT STOP ANGEL SANCHEZ! You have to think that a guy like Jed Lowrie would have taken care of that one. A lot of his singles were groundballs to centerfield. That could be a factor of hitters taking what they can get and shooting it back right and Lyles couldn't field it or the combination of Sanchez and Bixler for the middle infield couldn't range quite far enough.

The biggest thing I want to take away from the start was his groundball rate. Most of the hits were groundballs and he induced ten groundouts. You'll have success if you can do that as well as strikeout a handful of guys. Mark it down right here. Subber predicts Jordan Lyles gets called up (going out on a limb right).
