After Cuban free agent Yoan Moncada agreed to a reported $31.5 million signing bonus with the Boston Red Sox on Monday, Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Drew Smyly saw a discrepancy and took to Twitter to express his view.
Smyly, in the hours after the news broke, tweeted his thoughts on what he feels is a difference in how young prospects are paid, the amount of money dependent on where...
The Boston Red Sox have reportedly agreed to terms with 19-year-old infielder Yoan Moncada, and the Cuban baseball player is set to receive a $31.5 million signing bonus to join their organization.
However, $31.5 million seems like a lot of money for a player who has never played in a game at the Major League level.
Tampa Bay Rays reliever Drew Smyly echoed those sentiments on Twitter...
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 […]
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...
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 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...
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...
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...

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...
