Fantasy Analysis | 1409265602
Drew Smyly must-own, but not must-start
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Drew Smyly probably isn't as good as he's shown since joining the Rays. Granted, you shouldn't put anything past their coaching staff -- Alex Cobb, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi all appear well on their way to maximizing their talents -- but in his last four starts, Smyly has been as good as the man he was traded for, perennial Cy Young contender David Price. No transformation is that sudden.

The most telling number for me is that one that falls well short of Price's standards: During that four-start stretch, Smyly has averaged 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings. And yet he's allowed 11 hits in 30 2/3 innings. The result is an impossibly low .111 BABIP.

Of course, one look at his 0.88 ERA during that four-start stretch would tell you it's something he can't sustain, so maybe I'm going overboard digging into the advanced numbers there. My point is this: He's good, but with middle-of-the-road strikeout ability and an occasional vulnerability to home runs, I don't see him becoming start-him-every-week good.

In a relief pitcher spot in a points league, maybe, but otherwise, keep an eye on the matchups and weigh your alternatives.

Jake Odorizzi eaten alive by home runs
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi had a rough start Monday against the Orioles.

Odorizzi allowed eight runs on 11 hits over four innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Home runs were a major issue for Odorizzi. He wound up giving up four long balls during the game. Odorizzi got through the first two innings with no issues, but ran into some trouble in the third. Odorizzi gave up a single to start the inning, and then allowed back-to-back home runs. He settled down enough to get out of the inning without giving up any more runs. After a scoreless fourth, things fell apart in the fifth. Odorizzi gave up three straight singles to open the frame, the last of which brought home a run. With two men on, Delmon Young hit a three-run blast. J.J. Hardy followed that up with a solo shot. Odorizzi was replaced before he was able to record an out in the fifth inning.

With the loss, Odorizzi drops to 9-11. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.

Jake Odorizzi loses his 10th game Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Tigers.

Odorizzi gave up three runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two during the outing. The Tigers struck early against Odorizzi. With two outs in the first inning, Rajai Davis doubled and Ian Kinsler singled home a run. Odorizzi then settled in, tossing five straight scoreless innings. He ran into trouble again in the seventh. The same exact sequence happened during the inning. Odorizzi struck out the first two batters of the inning, but allowed a double and run-scoring single to the next two hitters. He was removed from the game at that point. Another run score following his departure. That run was charged to Odorizzi. 

With the loss, Odorizzi dropped to 9-10. He’ll take on the Orioles in his next start.
