Smyly (elbow) "felt pretty good" after playing catch Wednesday and will throw every other day for the foreseeable future, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. ""Just build some arm strength,'' manager Scott Servais said. "Get him out there playing some long toss then get him to a bullpen and go from there."

The veteran is eligible to come off the DL on May 29, but his current pace may leave him a bit short of that goal. However, Smyly isn't experiencing any setbacks, which remains the biggest takeaway from his progress reports. The 27-year-old southpaw had a rocky final outing before his injury this spring but was solid over his first two starts, firing five scoreless innings and only giving up one hit.
