Tigers Name Drew Smyly the 5th Starter
According to the freep Drew Smyly was told by the Tigers that he will start the season as the 5th starter in the rotation. When asked, Smyly's comments were "I am speechless".
Smyly is entering his 2nd season in his pro career after a successful year in Single-A Lakeland and Double-A Erie where he went 11-6 with a 2.07 ERA and 9.3 strikeouts per inning.
The freep mentioned that Smyly will make 1 start in Triple-A Toledo since the Tigers won't need a 5th starter at the begining of the season.
According to Jason Beck Smyly will make his debut on April 12th.
