Smyly projects to be the Giants' third or fourth starter once play resumes, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Smyly signed a one-year deal with the club this offseason and is considered a lock to begin the season in the rotation. While his overall numbers were poor in 2019, Smyly logged a 4.45 ERA across 62.2 innings after joining the Phillies midseason while also notching an impressive 68 strikeouts. Perhaps more importantly, he proved he could stay healthy after failing to pitch a significant number of innings in both 2017 and 2018 due to injury. Now in a pitcher-friendly environment, Smyly could see improved results when the 2020 season resumes.
Smyly signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Thursday.
The southpaw will join the Giants' pitching staff after posting a career-worst 6.24 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 25 appearances (21 starts) with the Phillies and Rangers last season. The deal is worth $4 million over one year, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Smyly will likely compete for a role in the major-league rotation during spring training despite his struggles in 2019.
Smyly struck out 10 while allowing two runs on four hits with no walks across 6.1 innings during a no-decision against the Nationals on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old saved one of his best outings of the year for last, but unfortunately for him, it still didn't end in a victory. The runner he left during the seventh scored after he exited to tie the game, leaving him with a no-decision. Smyly still ended on a high note, but his overall season was ugly -- 4-7 record, 6.24 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 120 strikeouts in 114 innings.
Smyly (3-2) took the loss after giving up four runs on five hits and three walks over two innings Friday night against the Indians.
Smyly struggled right from the start in this one, allowing two runs in the first inning followed by two more in the second prior to being lifted. Prior to Friday's rough outing, the 30-year-old southpaw has surrendered just four earned runs over his last three starts, though he sits with a 6.44 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 110 punchouts over 107.2 innings this season.
Smyly did not factor into the decision during Thursday's win over the Braves, lasting just four innings while allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts.
Smyly was mostly hurt by the long ball, serving up a two-run home run to Ozzie Albies in the first inning, then giving up another two-run shot to Adam Duvall in the fourth. The southpaw was facing the Braves for the first time this season and facing Albies for the first time in his career. Despite the brief outing, Smyly managed to record six punchouts, three of which came in the first frame. The slumping 30-year-old will take a 4.14 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into a rematch with Julio Teheran and the Braves during his next start on Wednesday.
Smyly (4-6) picked up the win Saturday, allowing four hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out six in a 5-0 victory over the Mets.
The southpaw tossed 70 of 108 pitches for strikes en route to his third win, and third quality start, in nine trips to the mound as a Phillie. Smyly now sports a 3.93 ERA and 52:17 K:BB through 50.1 innings with his new club, and he'll look to come up big again in his next outing Thursday, at home against Atlanta.
Smyly (3-6) allowed one run on four hits with three walks and eight strikeouts across 5.1 innings while earning a victory against the Reds on Monday.
Even though he couldn't finish the sixth, this was still major improvement for the southpaw. Smyly had yielded 20 runs in his last 25 innings (7.20 ERA) and won just one of seven outings with the Phillies coming into the night. Of course, that's still better than what he was doing with the Rangers. Smyly is 3-6 with a 6.65 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 98 strikeouts in 94.2 innings with the Rangers and Phillies this season. He will pitch next at the Mets on Saturday.
Smyly allowed four runs on nine hits with zero walks and four strikeouts across 5.2 innings during a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.
While he's pitching better with the Phillies than he did in Texas, Smyly still isn't posting great numbers. He's yielded fewer than four runs just once in his last five starts, and in that outing, he lasted just 3.2 innings. Smyly owns a 7.20 ERA in his last five starts since surrendering only one run in his first 13 frames with the Phillies. The veteran left-hander will next start at the Reds on Sunday, an outing intp which he'll carry a 2-6 record, 6.95 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 90 strikeouts, all across 89.1 innings.
Smyly didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Red Sox, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks over 3.2 innings while striking out four.
The southpaw tossed only 44 of 84 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, and while the light rain that fell throughout the game may have played a part in Smyly's inability to get the ball over the plate consistently, it's not like his struggles are anything new. He now has a 7.45 ERA through four starts in August (19.1 innings), but with the Phillies lacking alternatives for the rotation, he'll next take the mound Tuesday, at home against the Pirates.
Smyly allowed five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings Thursday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.
Smyly pitched well through three innings, allowing only one run on a solo homer. He stumbled down the stretch, however, allowing four hits and three earned runs in the fourth frame. After allowing only one earned run across his first 13 innings and two appearances with the Phillies, Smyly has allowed 14 earned runs in his last 15.2 frames -- spanning three starts. That's balanced out to a 4.71 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 30 strikeouts across 28.2 innings in his tenure with his new club. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for Wednesday at Boston.
Smyly took a no-decision during Friday's win over the Giants, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings.
Making his fourth start for the Phillies, Smyly surrendered three home runs, including a two-out solo homer to Kevin Pillar in the second inning, a solo shot to Joey Rickard in the third and a long ball to Stephen Vogt in the sixth that evened the score at 5-5. The 30-year-old had shut the Giants out over seven innings earlier in the season but clearly didn't have his best stuff this time around. Smyly will carry a 3.80 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 76:41 K:BB into a Thursday showdown against the Cubs.
Smyly (2-6) took the loss after surrendering five runs on four hits and a walk while striking out seven over five innings Sunday against the White Sox.
Chicago struck for five runs in the second inning, four of which came on a grand slam with two outs in the frame. After faring well in each of his first two outings with the Phillies (one earned run over 13 innings), Smyly took a step back during Sunday's finale. The southpaw owns a 7.01 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 72 strikeouts over 69.1 innings this season
Smyly (2-5) earned the win Tuesday against the Giants after giving up only four hits and one walk over seven shutout innings. He recorded five strikeouts.
Smyly scattered four singles Tuesday and didn't allow a Giant to reach second base in his first scoreless performance of the season. The 30-year-old has looked great through his first two starts for Philadelphia with one run allowed on eight hits over 13 frames, which should earn him a longer look in the starting rotation. Assuming he remains on turn, Smyly will start Sunday versus the White Sox.
Smyly is listed as the Phillies' scheduled starter for Tuesday's game against the Giants.
The lefty will be rewarded with a second turn through the rotation after limiting the Pirates to one run while striking out eight in six innings in his Phillies debut July 21. Smyly could be one of the top candidates to lose his spot in the rotation, however, if the Phillies are active to bring in another starting pitcher via trade prior to Wednesday's deadline.
Smyly gave up one run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight through six innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Sunday.
Smyly allowed three baserunners and a run to score in the first inning, but he shut down the Pirates through five scoreless innings to record his first quality start. Smyly picked up eight swinging strikes on his curveball and only allowed one hit with his fastball. This was a nice effort for the 30-year-old in his first appearance for Philadelphia after posting an 8.42 ERA through 51.1 innings with the Rangers. Smyly will make his next start Sunday against the Braves at Citizens Bank Park.
Smyly has officially signed with the Phillies and will start Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Smyly had most recently been a member of the Brewers organization, though he elected free agency after marking three starts with their Triple-A affiliate. His last major-league appearances came with the Rangers, and he experienced little success in that stint, posting an 8.42 ERA and 1.91 WHIP with 52 strikeouts across 51.1 innings.
Smyly is scheduled to start Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Smyly's contract with the Phillies is still pending a physical, but assuming everything checks out he'll enter the starting rotation Sunday. The 30-year-old had an 8.42 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 52:34 K:BB over 13 games with the Rangers prior to being released in late June.
Smyly signed a major-league contract with the Phillies on Friday and could enter the starting rotation Sunday versus the Pirates, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Smyly was released by the Rangers in late June and subsequently signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers, but he opted out of that deal Thursday and will make his way back to the majors with the Phillies. The 30-year-old struggled with an 8.42 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 52:34 K:BB in 13 games with Texas, but it appears he'll receive another starting chance in Philadelphia.
Smyly elected free agency Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Smyly's stint with the Brewers didn't last long, as the southpaw made just three appearances with the team's Triple-A affiliate -- posting a 4.97 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 18:3 K:BB in 12.2 innings -- before returning to the open market. The 30-year-old Smyly spent time with the Rangers earlier in the season but was designated for assignment after going 1-5 with an 8.42 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 52:34 K:BB in 51.1 innings.
Smyly agreed to a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Monday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
Smyly was cut loose by the Rangers on Friday, so his trip to the open market didn't last long. The lefty posted an 8.42 ERA and 1.91 WHIP with 52 strikeouts over 51.1 innings this season for Texas, and he'll now head to the minor leagues where he'll serve as organizational depth.
