I would drop him at this point. I'm a ravenous D-Backs fan and I myself jettisoned him to the waiver wire about a week ago. :,-(

60 day DL stint on top of all the sitting he's already done... if he does come back and he's handed the ball, he ain't going to be the same Lyon we all came to love. Maybe the D-Backs will have another rock solid closer at that point. Maybe the D-Backs will be so far out of it at that point they won't want to risk injuring him again. I just don't think he's worth keeping on your roster for another 60 day folks.

is this day 1 or 60 or does it take in all the DL time he's had so far?

From Rotoworld:
Brandon Lyon - R - Diamondbacks
Diamondbacks transferred RHP Brandon Lyon from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.
This confirms that Lyon is out until the All-Star break with his strained elbow. He said he will begin light tossing during the Diamondbacks' upcoming 10-game road trip. Jun. 12 - 7:18 pm et

This move just gives the D-backs more flexibility with their 40-man roster. He's retroactive to May 13, so should be available — if healthy — mid-July, or shortly after the break.
For those hanging on, I'd look for the first reports on that 'light tossing' that's supposed to be happening soon.
