MIAMI – The Colorado Rockies announced today that the club has placed right-handed pitcher Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring (retroactive to March 29). In addition, the club has recalled right-handed pitcher Jordan Lyles from Triple-A. Lyles (#24) is scheduled to start tonight’s game vs. Miami Marlins at Marlins Park (5:10 p.m. MDT).
Chatwood, 24, made his second Opening Day roster this season after spending the majority of last year on Colorado’s active roster. He started 20 games for the Rockies last year, going 8-5 with a 3.15 ERA (111.1 ip, 39 er), 41 walks and 66 strikeouts.

Lyles, 23, will be making his first career start as a Colorado Rockie after being acquired on December 3, 2013 from the Houston Astros along with outfielder Brandon Barnes for outfielder Dexter Fowler. In Spring Training, Lyles went 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA (17.0 ip, 6 er) in five games/four starts, all of which were on the road.
