DREW SMYLY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Q&A: Kevin Ziomek, Detroit Tigers Pitching Prospect (and the Next Drew Smyly?)

Kevin Ziomek carved up Midwest League hitters in his first full professional season. In 123 innings at West Michigan, the 22-year-old left-hander logged a 2.27 ERA and an 11.1 K/9. His top-flight numbers notwithstanding, he created surprisingly little buzz. The Detroit Tigers took Ziomek in the second round of the 2013 draft out of Vanderbilt […]

Fantasy Baseball: David Price trade implications

There’s no question that the biggest move of this season’s trade deadline was the three-team deal sending David Price to the Detroit Tigers, Austin Jackson to the Seattle Mariners, as well as Drew Smyly and Nick Franklin to the Tampa Bay Rays. When this kind of blockbuster trade goes down, it’s impossible not to consider the fantasy implications it will have on the players...

Mechanics tweak has Tigers' Smyly at top of his game

DETROIT -- Drew Smyly has never looked this efficient and dominant at the same time. The Detroit Tigers left-hander has carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning of his last two starts. Can he do that for a third consecutive start? "I hope so," said Smyly, whose next start is Thursday afternoon against the Chicago White Sox. "We'll see." Then he joked that "together" the beginning...

Smyly looks to bounce back from shortest start of career Friday

The Detroit Tigers are thriving in nearly every facet of late, but their rotation has been particularly outstanding. The same can't be said of Drew Smyly's latest outing. Smyly looks to bounce back from the shortest start of his career and help the Tigers to a six-game home winning streak Friday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. Detroit (48-34) is atop the AL Central by five games...

Detroit Tigers: should Drew Smyly stay in the pen?

First off, it is not panic time for the Detroit Tigers. They are 5-2 atop the AL Central and have three winnable games against the Padres this weekend. The pretty record however, does mask some cause for concern. And to absolutely nobody’s surprise, chief among them is the bullpen. What has been a shocker is closer Joe Nathan’s horrible start to the season. He is 1 for 3 in save...

Drew Smyly’s girlfriend Eryn Blatt wins the day (PICTURES)

Drew Smyly will have the opportunity in 2014 to prove that his left-arm is worthy of excelling in a starting role in the Big Leagues.  At his side, hopefully for Tiger fans on his right arm, will be girlfriend Eryn Blatt. As Smyly transitions back to being a starter after being arguably the Tigers’ most valuable reliever last year, Blatt will transition into being one of the dolls...

Tigers will be careful with Smyly

LAKELAND, Fla. -- This season is all about the change for Detroit Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly. There's the changeup -- a pitch that he's finally developed to the point where it enabled him to get out of jams in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the New York Mets. Then there's the change in role -- moving from bullpen to rotation, which isn't easily accomplished. Consider this: With the regular...

Smyly begins return to Tigers rotation

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Drew Smyly started his return to the rotation Wednesday after pitching out of the bullpen all of last season. Smyly, who started Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Braves, threw two innings for the first time since last June 23. Smyly allowed one run on two hits while walking one and striking out two. "I thought it went well," Smyly said. "My arm felt good...

Detroit Tigers full of questions

When a team sees their payroll jump from approximately $148M to what figures to be a tad higher than $160M by opening day like the Detroit Tigers have from last year to this, you’d expect a product that is equal to or greater than the previous version. Well, so much for logic, and welcome to modern baseball where arbitration raises and ballooning free agent deals are driving payroll...

Detroit Tigers rumors: Domonic Brown edition

Before the Detroit Tigers made two big offseason trades and a free agent signing for a closer, I had suggested the possibility of a trade for Phillies left-fielder Domonic Brown. As the winter meetings have kicked off in Orlando this week so has the news that the 26-year old Brown is indeed on the market. One problem, the trade proposal that I set forth back then involved Doug Fister...
