The Seattle Mariners announced on Wednesday that lefty Drew Smyly will have Tommy John surgery and will be out 12-15 months. With this news, it’s entirely possible that Smyly will never throw a pitch for the Mariners.

Did Drew Smyly Already Fix What Was Broke?

The last time I saw Drew Smyly, it was during one of the lowest points of his career. It was July and he’d just completed a stretch of 20.2 innings over which he’d allowed 21 earned runs.
