DREW SMYLY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Schedule, rainouts delay Smyly's first start

DETROIT -- Drew Smyly will be a starting pitcher again someday, but it hasn't happened yet this season. Brad Ausmus promises that Smyly will eventually get to pitch in the rotation spot that he earned with a strong season in the bullpen last year. He was originally scheduled to start Wednesday, but Tuesday's postponement has moved that back once again. "It has been hard...

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...

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.

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...

Drew Smyly looks forward to being a starter again

DETROIT -- For Drew Smyly, starting is like going home. When the Tigers traded Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals, it opened a spot in the rotation for Smyly, who spent the entire 2013 season in the bullpen. "I was really shocked," Smyly said before the Tigers started their Winter Caravan. "I didn't really think it was going to happen. We had one of the best...

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...

Laid-back Drew Smyly remains consistent in bullpen role

DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Drew Smyly probably wouldve made a great fireman or tightrope walker. His focus under duress also would come in handy as a Secret Service agent or high-rise window washer. Hes as cool a customer as Ive ever seen, Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones said. Smyly faces the best hitters opponents have to offer, but the fans waiting in line for...
