Lyles: Movin' on up

SC Now has a nice little profile on Jordan Lyles, and there is no timetable for his rapid advancement through the minors (thankfully):

Ricky Bennett:
“We knew when we drafted him that he has a chance to be special and Jordan has done an outstanding job since we drafted him in 2008. In terms of expectations, there is no timetable as to when he will be ready. His performance will tell us when he’s ready. He’s done everything we’ve asked of him and he has put himself in a position to be successful coming into 2010. Jordan is a very good athlete and we are excited about where he is in his development.”

“Last year was a pretty big step for me. I worked hard on working on my curve ball, and I felt I accomplished that. My record wasn’t all that great, but I felt like I had a good year.”
