Manager: Rest, rehab possible for Rays SP Drew Smyly
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash has echoed the optimism expressed by Rays starter Drew Smyly in regard to the torn labrum that has the left-hander on the 60-day disabled list.
"There are so many different degrees to a shoulder issue," Cash told MLB Network Radio. "He met with doctors and rest and rehab is now a possibility."
Smyly is hopeful he can return to the mound at some point this season. He performed well in three starts before going down despite an 0-1 record, yielding just five runs on 10 hits in 16 2/3 innings while striking out 21.
Rays' Drew Smyly hopeful he can pitch through torn labrum
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) After meeting with doctors, Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly told reporters that the tear in his labrum is not considered a significant tear. He remains confident that he'll be able to pitch through the issue, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
"I obviously have a shoulder problem," Smyly said, per the Tampa Tribune. "After talking with a few of the doctors that I’ve met with, we’ve decided to rehab it. Everyone seems very optimistic that that’s the route to take. It’s not choosing that over surgery. They act like surgery’s not even really an option right now."
Smyly was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday because of the injury. He will need approximately eight weeks of rehab before rejoining the club.

Rays move Drew Smyly to 60-day disabled list
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) The Rays transferred starting pitcher Drew Smyly to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday with a torn labrum, per the Tampa Tribune. Smyly will have his left shoulder examined on Thursday by Rangers team doctor, Keith Meister.
"Obviously it's a devastating blow," manager Kevin Cash said. "Obviously we don't know much more beyond other than the fact that we knew regardless of what happens, it's going to take some time for him to get to where he needs to be to help us."
Rays P Drew Smyly seeking second opinion on shoulder
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/10/15) Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly is trying to avoid undergoing season-ending surgery on his shoulder, and is seeking a second MRI on the injury, per the Tampa Tribune.
Smyly was placed on the disabled list Saturday with what the team termed left shoulder tightness. If Smyly is done for the year, he would finish the year 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA.
The Rays feel that Smyly could have suffered the injury initially during spring training but that it was diagnosed only as tendinitis.

MLB Preseason Power Rankings: Nationals lead final forecast for 2015
How are these 2015 predictions going to turn out? If this expert's track record is a guide, some good, some bad and some ugly.
|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, which looked like it could be an issue later this season, but now that he's likely to begin the year on the DL, any thoughts of an innings limit may be moot. The injury itself doesn't seem like a big deal -- shoulder tendinitis, the Rays are calling it -- but because it developed midway through spring training, Smy could potentially miss all of April.
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.
