A supplemental first-round draft pick in 2008, Lyles debuted with the Astros at just 20 years of age. He started his career with seven shutout innings against the Chicago Cubs. The young phenom has shown modest improvement over his first two seasons, posting a 7-20 record and struggling with middle-inning meltdowns.
