Chris Smith: Released by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (elbow) was released by the Tigers on Monday.

It's been quite a rough stretch for the 30-year-old, who ruptured his UCL in late February. He'll spend the entire 2019 season recovering from Tommy John surgery and now will have to manage that recovery without the support of a team. With a typical recovery timeline, he'd be able to return at some point in 2020, though a player of his age with just five big-league innings under his belt is unlikely to excite teams, even without the injury concerns.

Tigers' Chris Smith: Meets with Dr. Andrews
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (elbow) met with Dr. James Andrews on Monday and is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery this week, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The Tigers will likely confirm that Smith underwent the elbow operation within a few days, but Tommy John surgery was always the likely outcome after he ruptured his UCL last week. The 30-year-old is in line to miss the entire 2019 season and could be sidelined for a large portion of 2020 as well.

Tigers' Chris Smith: Ruptures UCL in live BP session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tests revealed that Smith suffered a torn UCL during his live batting practice session Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Smith was a long shot to break camp with the Tigers as things stood before, but now it seems like he's in danger of missing the entire 2019 season, if not more. No official word has come out from the Tigers, though this is the kind of injury that frequently needs Tommy John surgery to fix. More information will likely come out in the coming days as Smith and the team determine his next steps.

Tigers' Chris Smith: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had his shoulder checked out Wednesday after feeling something during a live batting practice session, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The nature and severity of the issue are not yet clear. The 30-year-old is a long shot at best to break camp with the Tigers, with just four big-league games under his belt. Any time lost to injury this spring would only serve to decrease his already slim chances.

Tigers' Chris Smith: Inks minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Thursday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Smith spent the entirety of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level within the Nationals' system, logging a 3.93 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 65:21 K:BB across 55 innings of relief. He pitched in four big-league games for Toronto in 2017, but that's the extent of Smith's service in the majors. He will provide additional bullpen depth for Detroit heading into the spring.
