Between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers, Lyles posted a 4.15 ERA across 141 innings in 2019. He went 7-1 with a 2.45 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 11 starts with the Brewers, who acquired him at midseason.
Lyles, 29, will get the chance to start in Texas, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Barring any further acquisitions, the Rangers' rotation is slated to include Mike Minor, Lance Lynn, recently signed Kyle Gibson, Lyles, and Kolby Allard.
The Brewers, Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, and Minnesota Twins were also in on Lyles before he signed with the Rangers, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman.
