Drew Smyly goes four-plus innings Thursday

Drew Smyly pitched four-plus innings against the Mets Thursday, allowing nine hits, three runs (all earned), and one walk while striking out six batters. He was chased after a Pete Alonso home run in the fifth (no outs). The Braves' offense came alive to seal the 6-3 win although Smyly didn't pitch the required innings to get a win or quality start. He threw 85 pitches, 56 for strikes. He carries a 4.40 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

It's apparent that Smyly can get through a lineup once or twice, but the third time through is definitely a no-no. And that, of course, puts a dent in his fantasy value.

Drew Smyly (knee) leaves Saturday's start

Drew Smyly exited Saturday's start against the Phillies due to left knee pain.

Fantasy Impact

Smyly threw four scoreless frames before exiting. He's likely being sent for imaging, and the Braves should update his status by Sunday at the latest.

Drew Smyly goes 5 2/3 innings Sunday

Drew Smyly pitched 5 2/3 innings against the Rays Sunday, allowing four hits, three runs (all earned), and two walks while striking out six batters. He drew a no-decision as the Braves bullpen imploded again. Smyly threw 92 pitches, 63 for strikes. He carries a 4.50 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves offense is doing their best to provide support for the Braves starters, without Ronald Acuna Jr., Travis d'Arnaud, and Marcell Ozuna. But the devil of the truth is the Braves bullpen, who can't seem to hold leads. Going forward, wins might be hit or miss for Smyly but he must produce more quality starts to be an effective fantasy starter.

Drew Smyly goes five innings Wednesday

Drew Smyly pitched five innings against the Pirates Wednesday, allowing nine hits, three runs (all earned), and three walks while striking out four batters. The Braves bullpen held the Marlins at the three runs, the offense supplied 14 runs, and Smyly picked up his seventh victory, his season record is 7-3. He threw 88 pitches, 61 for strikes. He carries a 4.48 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

This was not a good effort, Smyly was very lucky they only scored three on him today. But limiting damage is a key component for a starter, and the Braves are grateful for the win. Smyly should have a fairly good second half for fantasy managers.
