Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly will remain in the starting rotation, and manager Kevin Cash and the staff is optimistic about Smyly's next start.
Fantasy Tip: Smyly has had a trying season with a 5.64 ERA, and he's allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last five starts dating back to June 20. The strikeout upside is there (9.5 K/9 and 10.4 in 2015), but he's hurting his owners much more frequently than helping, and you should look to avoid him until he shows better results.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly gave up nine hits and five runs in five innings Monday, July 18, in a 7-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies. The loss left Smyly 0-7 over his past 10 starts and extended his career-high losing streak. The 11 defeats are also a career high for Smyly, who lost 10 games in 2014 when he pitched for both the Detroit Tigers and the Rays.
Fantasy Tip: What has gone wrong with Smyly? He was so promising at one point, and all that promise appears to have gone out the window. Needless to say, you need to avoid him for the time being.

Tampa Bay Rays SPs Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly are possible trade targets for the Texas Rangers, but the Rangers are not pursuing SP Chris Archer.
Fantasy Tip: The Rangers are looking to add to their starting rotation and could add either Odorizzi or Smyly. They likely would see a boost in their value since they would be playing for a better team and would be decent options in mixed leagues.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly was blasted for seven runs - four earned - and eight hits over four innings Wednesday, July 6, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He is winless in nine starts since last winning May 16.
Fantasy Tip: Smyly joins teammate Chris Archer in the double-digit loss club before the All-Star break. While his 1.32 WHIP isn't too terrible, his 5.47 ERA is deplorable. At least Smyly manages to salvage most fantasy stat lines with 108 strikeouts through 100 1/3 innings.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (2-9) allowed six runs (four earned) on six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Detroit Tigers Friday, July 1, with four walks and eight strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Smyly has allowed 12 earned runs in his last 11 2/3 innings and hasn't recorded a victory since May 16. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats at this point.
