Further evidence Lyles might be coming up to the Big Club

Alyson Footer posted from her minor-league road trip an update on Jordan Lyles:

The Astros have become much more liberal with their thinking when it comes to challenging the really special talent, and while they don't want to place too many early expectations on Lyles, it's clear he's the pitching prospect with the brightest future. After spending the 2009 season with Low-A Lexington, Lyles skipped High-A Lancaster and went straight to Corpus to begin '10, and there's a chance that's not his final stop this year, despite there less than a month remaining in the Minor League season.
