Lyons had begun camp with what appeared to be an outside chance of cracking the rotation, but was used primarily in relief roles.
His performance in spring was less than stellar, as he surrendered 13 runs on 14 hits in just 8 innings. He will begin the season in the Memphis rotation and likely repeat his role as a spot starter for the MLB club in 2014.
