Don't be surprised if Lyles comes up

There's a pretty decent chance that, in one calendar year, Jordan Lyles will have pitched for Lexington, Corpus, Round Rock, and Houston. He's already the youngest player to join Triple-A this season, and now Brad Mills wouldn't be surprised if he found his way to Minute Maid:

“That’s not out of the question. You see guys make those steps all the time, get a couple of starts at Triple-A and then move up to the next level. If he is as good as advertised, that wouldn’t be surprising at all.”
