Rays | Drew Smyly to be re-evaluated in eight weeks

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:26:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) said he'll be re-evaluated in roughly eight weeks and there should be a clearer picture of whether he can return in 2015. He currently is not considering season-ending surgery. Smyly was put on the 60-day disabled list May 9, and he hopes to resume playing catch in the next couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly shouldn't be held onto in shallow mixed leagues at this point unless you're using him in one of your DL slots. Even then, there's a good chance he won't pitch again this season. With Matt Moore's (elbow) return on the horizon, Alex Colome ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) may not be long for the rotation. Stash Moore now if you're looking for extra pitching help this summer.

Rays | Drew Smyly could return this year

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:59:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) could return this season after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder. Manager Kevin Cash said the team is "optimistic" that Smyly could pitch this year. Smyly will meet with the training staff Thursday, May 21, to formulate a plan that will include rest and rehab over surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly is probably still a long shot to pitch again in 2015, and surgery might be inevitable. About the only place you should hang onto him are AL-only setups. Alex Colome's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) rotation spot may be safe until Matt Moore (elbow) returns sometime next month.

Rays | Drew Smyly seeking second opinion

Wed, 13 May 2015 14:50:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) is headed to Texas to have the torn labrum in his left shoulder examined by Dr. Keith Meister of the Texas Rangers. There still has not been a final decision on whether Smyly will opt for surgery.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Smyly is nothing more than a desperation DL stash in seasonal formats. There is no guarantee he returns to make an impact in 2015, if he does opt out of season-ending surgery, either. Smyly is not worth a bench spot in year-long leagues.

Rays | Drew Smyly moved to 60-day DL

Wed, 13 May 2015 14:11:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Seasonal owners have no reason to stash Smyly on their bench, as he is unlikely to pitch again in 2015. Nathan Karns ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Alex Colome ($4,000, 8% of cap) have been filling as starters for Tampa, but one will likely be bumped once Matt Moore rejoins the rotation. Karns and Colome's year-long value is fleeting in AL-only and cavernous mixed formats, and they're risky FantasyScore starts.

Rays | Drew Smyly decision coming in a few days

Mon, 11 May 2015 13:34:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) won't have a decision on whether he'll need surgery for a few more days after he underwent his second MRI exam Monday, May 11. He is seeking a second opinion on a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: With Smyly facing the potential of season-ending surgery, Nathan Karns ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Alex Colome ($4,000, 8% of cap) may be gaining long-term fantasy value. Alex Cobb is also having season-ending Tommy John surgery. However, the return of Matt Moore (elbow) looms early this summer.

Rays | Drew Smyly having another MRI

Mon, 11 May 2015 06:50:32 -0700

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will have a second MRI on his left shoulder. There is a strong possibility Smyly will require season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum, but the team stressed that decision hasn't been made yet.

Fantasy Tip: In all likelihood, Smyly is done for a while. Alex Colome ($4,000, 8.0% of your cap) has a 1.80 ERA and 10 K's in as many innings thus far and is a great waiver wire target. He's a low-end matchup play on FantasyScore.

Rays | Drew Smyly could have surgery

Sun, 10 May 2015 06:09:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) has a tear in his labrum that could require season-ending surgery. SP Alex Colome will likely remain in the Rays starting rotation, at least until SP Matt Moore (elbow) is able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) can be dropped in all leagues. Owners should add Colome and Moore if they have the roster room.

Rays | Drew Smyly out a while?

Sat, 09 May 2015 17:22:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) may not be ready to come of the 15-day disabled list when he is eligible May 22. "Obviously, some negative news on Drew," manager Kevin Cash said. "We're still in the process of evaluating exactly what the issue is. But we know enough that we need to put him on the DL and make some adjustments."

Fantasy Tip: Smyly has been limited to just three starts this season because of shoulder problems, and it sounds like the Rays are not optimistic about his chances of a speedy recovery. If you own him in seasonal leagues, stash him until a more definite timetable for his return is established.

Rays | Drew Smyly to the DL

Fri, 08 May 2015 20:37:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder stiffness Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has been solid when he has been healthy, but injuries have limited him to just three starts this season. It doesn't sound like this latest issue is going to threaten his season, and if you own him in seasonal leagues, keep him stashed on your bench for now.

Rays | Drew Smyly solid in second start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:47:44 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly gave up just two runs and four hits while striking out 10 in six innings in a no-decision against the New York Yankees Wednesday, April 29, in just his second start of the season after opening on the disabled list due to shoulder inflammation. Smyly walked just one batter and threw 59 of his 87 pitches for strikes in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is still building his stamina in the first month of the season, and his first two starts have been very encouraging for his fantasy owners. He blossomed in the second half of 2014 after arriving from the Detroit Tigers, and he should continue to grow with the Rays. As he builds his arm strength, Smyly is a great FantasyScore option with high-strikeout upside.
