In Sunday's 8-4 win, Jordan Lyles tossed three innings while allowing four hits, two earned runs, two walks, and four strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.

In Thursday's loss to the Astros, Jordan Lyles tossed seven innings while allowing three hits, two earned runs, and one walk with two strikeouts. That was his first quality start of the season.
Although Lyles threw a quality start, it looked a bit fluky since he allowed ten hard-hit batted balls with an exit velocity of 95+ mph. He is not a reliable streaming pitcher at this point.
Jordan Lyles threw 6.1 innings while allowing three hits, four earned runs, four walks, and four strikeouts in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners. This was the first time Lyles reached six innings.
At this point, Lyles isn't fantasy relevant even as a streaming pitcher. His 12.9% strikeout rate paired with his 10% walk rate is worrisome.
The Rangers used Jordan Lyles in a follower role and he threw five innings while allowing six hits, three earned runs, and one walk with two strikeouts in a 6-5 win against the Astros. On the season, Lyles has struggled with an 8.59 ERA, 1.81 WHIP, and 18 strikeouts in 29.1 innings.
After a decent 2019 where Lyles threw 141 innings with a 4.15 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 146 strikeouts, he has struggled in 2020. At this point, Lyles isn't even in the streaming pitcher category.
