Rays | Drew Smyly to rehab Friday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:30:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will make another rehab start Friday, July 31, according to manager Kevin Cash. The team's reports on Smyly have been much better than his results so far.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly still has a ways to go to get stretched out in order to return to the Rays rotation in the second half of the season. Expecting him to make a big impact down the stretch for a fantasy squad is unrealistic, and he should only be stashed in deeper leagues.

Rays | Drew Smyly set for rehab assingment

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:19:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) is expected to began his rehab assignment with Class AAA Durham Sunday, July 26. He is scheduled to throw approximately 45 pitches or three innings.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly is rehabbing from a torn labrum and likely will have minimal fantasy impact this season, if any. He'll need to be stretched out and avoid any setbacks, so a few starts in September is likely a best-case scenario. At this point, he is a desperation stash in the majority of formats.

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 12:07:24 -0700

Rays | Drew Smyly throws live BP

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 16:36:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch live batting practice session in Florida Thursday, July 16, and the session went well.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly is dealing with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, but the Rays aren't ruling him out for the rest of the 2015 season. However, there's little chance that he makes a significant impact for fantasy owners in the second half, especially since Tampa Bay could use him out of the bullpen. Stash him if you must in deeper leagues, but don't hold your breath.

Rays | Drew Smyly could return in August

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:52:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) returning in August is still a possibility, according to the organization. His rehab starts will be telling, though, as there is a possibility his labrum tear was existing.

Fantasy Tip: While the Rays remain optimistic, fantasy owners should view any contributions from Smyly this season as a bonus. He is worth stashing in a disabled list slot in seasonal formats, but wasting a bench spot on him is ill-advised. Continue to check back for updates.

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:21:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will throw off a mound for the first time Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly is fighting an uphill battle to pitch again this year. Only continue stashing him on the DL if you have the room in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 14:01:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) threw long toss from 105 feet Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly still has a long road ahead of him before returning to the mound, and outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, there is no reason to stash him. Plus, there is no guarantee of what his fantasy return will be for those patient owners, either. After all, he is rehabbing a torn labrum. Continue to monitor his progress and check back for updates.
