Rockies vs. Brewers spring training preview: Jordan Lyles makes 2nd start

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Lyles will have his work cut out for him against the Brewers. Let's hope he flashes some of that upside.

One-half of the return the Rockies received in the Dexter Fowler trade will make his second start this spring against the Brewers in Cactus League action.

Lyles has been one of the worst starters in the league over the last three seasons, as SB Nation's Grant Brisbee recently noted. But, since he's only 23 years old and possesses a pretty good fastball, there is some upside there and the Rockies obviously see it. He's certainly in for a challenge today against a Brewers lineup that looks big-league quality, unlike the one the Rockies will be running out there.

Still, all is well, as we'll get our first chance to see Lyles and the rest of the squad as MLB.tv will finally be carrying a Rockies game, albeit with the Brewers feed.

Opposing Lyles will be Kyle Lohse, a guy at whom the Rockies made a run prior to last season. Lohse ultimately signed with Milwaukee, of course, and ended up posting solid numbers -- a 3.35 ERA and 3.47 K/BB ratio in just shy of 200 innings.
