Lyles has allowed two runs on two hits and a pair of walks in four total innings. The 24-year-old right-hander has notched a couple of strikeouts.
It's highly unlikely that Lyles will begin the regular season anywhere but in the Rockies' starting rotation, but if Jorge De La Rosa and Jhoulys Chacin prove to be healthy and prospects Jon Gray and Eddie Butler continue to look as impressive as they've been thus far in the desert ... well, I guess you never know.
Here are the lineups for both teams:
With apologiez to Brandon Barnez, Carlos Gonzalez's name is the most exciting one in the lineup today. It will also be interesting to see if Trevor Story can continue his strong start to the spring. Story has as many extra-base hits (three) as strikeouts during Cactus League play and, by all accounts, has looked good at each of the three positions at which he's appeared.
