If you're willing to buy into Smyly's 2020 season, then he's likely to come at a major discount in drafts. He added more than two miles per hour to his fastball, struck out 37.8% of the batters he faced, and leaned more into his excellent curveball. There's reason for optimism after the Braves offered him a substantial one-year deal. Of course, Smyly's real issue is his health, as he missed two full seasons because of Tommy John surgery and even last year was limited to 26 1/3 innings. But there's reason to believe his gains last year are sustainable, so taking him late in your drafts, is worth the gamble.

Drew Smyly tosses two innings Wednesday

Drew Smyly pitched two innings Wednesday against the Orioles allowing one hit and striking out three.

Fantasy Impact

Smyly, along with Charlie Morton, were two veterans added to an otherwise young rotation for 2021. He should have plenty of run support if everybody stays healthy and thus a solid candidate for wins. And he should have enough left in the tank for a good number of quality starts, providing coach Brian Snitker lets him go six innings more times than not.
