Lyons side-armed delivery from the left side elicits comparisons to Brian Fuentes. Lyons does look to be particularly effective against left-handed hitters, but he has been rather effective against right-handed hitters as well during his college career, meaning there's no reason to label him a specialist despite his side-arm delivery. He has a solid repertoire highlighted by a 88-91 fastball that he commands very well. He alternates between a slider and a curveball, depending on which pitch is working better for him on any given day. His curveball is a big, slow breaker while his slider has a less pronounced sweeping action. His changeup is servicable. Lyons did pitch almost exclusively out of the Team USA bullpen less summer, and he didn't give up an earned run in 11 appearances. He will return to the rotation for his junior season at Oklahoma State, joining fellow southpaw Andrew Oliver.
