Drew Smyly gets shelled Friday

Drew Smyly pitched four innings Friday against the Blue Jays, allowing seven hits, six runs (five earned), and four walks while striking three batters out. He is now 0-2 on the season, carrying an 8.05 ERA. He threw 84 pitches, 46 for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves signed Smyly to a one-year $11M deal, it was a mistake then and he is proving that now. There is no reason to roster him at this point, he just can't be trusted.

Drew Smyly tosses four innings Sunday

Drew Smyly pitched four innings in the second game of the doubleheader Sunday against the Diamondbacks, allowing six hits, six runs (five earned), and two walks while striking out four batters. This was his first loss of the year, his record stands at 0-1. He threw 71 pitches, 51 for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

So far, Smyly is proving what many knew, except for the Braves, that Smyly just isn't that good. He can and probably will have some good outings this year but his consistency has always been the problem.

Drew Smyly (forearm) activated for Saturday's start

The Braves activated Drew Smyly (forearm) from the 10-day IL.

Fantasy Impact

Smyly is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the D'Backs. He has a 5.73 ERA with 11 strikeouts in 11 innings so far this season.

Drew Smyly (forearm) will return Saturday vs D'Backs

Braves LHP Drew Smyly (forearm) is scheduled to return on Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

Smyly will wind up missing just a little bit more time than the minimum IL stay. He's a risky fantasy option in his first start back.

Drew Smyly (forearm) placed on 10-day IL

The Braves have placed Drew Smyly on the 10-day IL with left forearm inflammation. Kyle Wright was recalled from the club's alternate site and will start on Friday against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Smyly had a 5.73 ERA this season so fantasy managers probably weren't starting him anyway, but they'll need to find a replacement if they were. Health concerns, not talent, have always been the impediment to Smyly's success, and given that he is dealing with an injury to his forearm, fantasy managers should not be optimistic on his status going forward.
