Rays shut Drew Smyly down
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/9/14) The Rays have shut pitcher Drew Smyly down, the Tampa Tribune reports.
Smyly ends his season with a 3.24 ERA and 133:42 K:BB ratio in 153 innings with the Rays and Tigers. He threw just 76 innings while working exclusively out of the bullpen last season. The team's starter for Friday has yet to be announced.
Drew Smyly might be done for 2014
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/7/14) According to the Tampa Bay Times, Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly may not pitch again for the rest of this season. Smyly may make one more start, but with his innings total already at 153 for the season, he could get shut down immediately. He has already exceeded his previous career high by 36 innings.
Rays executive vice president Andrew Friedman and manager Joe Maddon are expected to meet with other club officials within the next few days to decide upon a course of action for Smyly, who was acquired from the Tigers at the July 31 trade deadline. He was a key part of the package received by the Rays in exchange for former ace David Price.
Smyly turned in the latest of a series of strong performances on Saturday when he held the Orioles to one run over six innings.
Bullpen lets Drew Smyly down in quality start
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/6/14) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly put together a strong performance Saturday, but had to settle for a no-decision in a 3-2 win over the Orioles.
Smyly allowed just one run in six inning of work, and exited in line for the win before the bullpen let go of the lead. He allowed his one run on four hits and a pair of walks, while striking out eight batters, his second highest total since joining the Rays in early August.
Smyly remains 3-1 in seven starts with the Rays, while posting a 1.69 ERA in 47 2/3 innings. He will try to keep rolling in his next outing, set for Friday in Toronto.
|2014 summary: Drew Smyly had trouble getting on a roll with the Tigers, as inconsistent performance and occasional skipped starts made him a frustration to own in Fantasy. Owners who held on to him or picked him up after his July trade to the Rays were rewarded in a big way. In seven starts with Tampa Bay, Smyly went 3-1 with a 1.70 ERA and an 0.76 WHIP, as high swinging strike (12 percent) and popup (16 percent) rates made him tough to get a hit against.|
Playing time status: A restriction on Smyly's workload limited him to 153 innings last season, and that low total makes him a poor bet to come close to 200 innings this season.
2015 outlook: It's hard to imagine that Smyly could sustain the level of success he had in his short time with the Rays last year, but it speaks to the potential he has as a must-start option in standard mixed leagues. Given his strong flyball tendencies, Smyly still appears to be risky when pitching in venues that are tougher on pitchers than Tropicana Field. Despite the possible need to sit Smyly in his tougher weeks, he is still worth a late-round pick in standard mixed leagues.
