DETROIT -- Jordan Lyles threw 4 2/3 scoreless innings on Thursday night for Triple-A Colorado Springs as he continues to rehab a broken bone in his left hand.

"Things went well for him last night," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.

The encouraging start means that the Rockies will be examining the possibility of Lyles starting a game during the team's next homestand, which begins Tuesday against the Cubs.

"Jordan's an option," Weiss said. "We have the off-day when we go back home and there's a chance that he could be slotted in on that homestand. We're still trying to line up some things because we do have the off-day. Jordan could certainly be one of those pieces."

Lyles has been out since June 4.
