Drew Smyly on innings limit
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Drew Smyly will be held to about 150 innings this season, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Joe Maddon said Smyly would likely be held between 150 innings and 160 innings. Smyly has already reached his career-high in innings, and currently sits at 141 1/3 on the year. Smyly has put up strong numbers, posting a 3.31 ERA, but he's never thrown more than 117 innings over a full season.

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.

Drew Smyly turns in fantastic start Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Drew Smyly turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Orioles. 

Smyly allowed one run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked one during the start. The Orioles picked up their only run in the second inning on a Chris Davis solo shot. Following that at-bat, Smyly retired the next 12 Orioles. His streak was broken by a two-out single in the sixth inning. Smyly threw 87 pitches during the appearance. 

With the win, Smyly improved to 9-10. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.

Kevin Kiermaier ready to roll Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier has returned to the lineup for the Wednesday night game in Baltimore. He has been dealing with a neck issue.

Kiermaier was heating up before going down. A 6-for-9 stretch ended a 2-for-27 slump.
