Rays | Drew Smyly a couple weeks away

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:35:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) is likely to make his season debut April 29 against the New York Yankees. The team wants to stretch him out to 100 pitches before recalling him from his rehab assignment. He threw 40 pitches in a rehab game at Double-A Montgomery Tuesday, April 14, and threw 12 more in the bullpen afterwards. His next rehab start will be Sunday, April 19, at Double-A.

Fantasy Tip: You should probably give Smyly ($6,200, 12.4% of your cap) a start or two before considering him on FantasyScore.

Rays | Drew Smyly heads to Double-A

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 13:43:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will head to Double-A Montgomery for another rehab start Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is heading up the ladder as he recovers from shoulder surgery, but he may not be 100 percent until the end of April or the beginning of May. Avoid putting him in until he's been in the MLB lineup a couple of times.

Rays | Drew Smyly to rehab Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 11:38:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will make his second rehab outing for Single-A Charlotte Tuesday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) could figure into the Rays rotation in early May, and he'll be a mid-tier starting pitching option at FantasyScore. However, you'll likely want to stay away from him in at least his first major league start in 2015.

Rays | Drew Smyly looking at four rehab starts

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 06:49:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) could return after being stretched out to 75 pitches, according to manager Kevin Cash. Smyly will throw 35 pitches in his first rehab start Thursday, April 9, and could reach 75 after four starts.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly has a lot of upside and would be a good mid-tier starter on FantasyScore upon return. That return could come at the end of the month.

Rays | Drew Smyly to pitch Thursday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:18:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will make his first rehab start for Single-A Charlotte Thursday, April 9.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) could be back in the Rays rotation by the end of April if everything goes right. Stash him in a DL spot for now in standard leagues. It'll probably be wise to hold off on using him at FantasyScore until at least May, though.

Rays | Drew Smyly pleased with BP session

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:08:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) threw a batting practice session Wednesday, April 1, and he seemed pleased by his first live session. "He started at around 80 percent effort level then kind of dialed it up by plan," manager Kevin Cash said. "Everybody that watched it all felt really good. I'd be curious to see how he feels (Thursday), but everything we've heard so far is that he'll come in feeling good." Smyly is scheduled to throw again Saturday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly appears to be making progress and he could be back in action by the end of April. FantasyScore owners will want to forget about him for the first few weeks of the season and wait for him to officially return and prove his health in at least one full start before trusting him.

Rays | Drew Smyly making progress

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 11:57:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday, March 29, and is scheduled to throw a two-inning batting practice session Wednesday, April 1. Smyly could throw another batting practice session Saturday, April 4, and then pitch in a minor league game. Manager Kevin Cash there is a chance Smyly could return to the rotation by the end of April.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) will have a rotation spot when he returns from injury, so owners should monitor his rehab over the next few weeks. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see him start a game or two before using him in their lineups.

Rays | Drew Smyly to throw Sunday

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 07:15:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, March 29, and could start facing batters if everything goes well.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is expected to miss the first week or two of the regular season, so owners should keep an eye on his recovery. Smyly could be a solid option on FantasyScore when he returns and could be a middle- to late-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Rays | Drew Smyly not expected to pitch this spring

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:24:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) is expected to throw his third bullpen of the spring Thursday, March 26, but manager Kevin Cash doesn't think Smyly will be able to appear in a game in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly recorded a 1.70 ERA and 0.76 WHIP while compiling 44 strikeouts in 47 2/3 innings over seven starts after being traded to the Rays in 2014. Smyly will need to be monitored, but his shoulder injury shouldn't keep him out for long. He's worth stashing late in mixed league drafts for his upside.

Rays | Drew Smyly throws bullpen, feels good

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:47:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Monday, March 23, and said he felt good.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly remains an upside arm to target in the late middle rounds of drafts, but it would be wise to continue monitoring his recovery progress leading into the season. He isn't expected to miss a significant amount of time and projects to return in mid-April, barring any setbacks.
