VEB 2018 Projections Results: Tyler Lyons

What does VEB have to say about Tyler Lyons? Here’s some words I said a couple weeks ago about Tyler Lyons: Originally brought up to the St. Louis Cardinals as a starting pitcher, Tyler Lyons concluded his second consecutive season pitching exclusively in relief in 2017, and it was a watershed season in his career so far.

Even though Pham suffered through injury...
