6 months agoPhiladelphia Phillies starting pitcher Drew Smyly will make his first start with the team Sunday at the Pirates. Reliever Fernando Salas has been designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for the new signing. Smyly was having a brutal season with Texas before being designated for assignment. He was picked up by the Brewers on a minor league deal he opted out of Thursday allowing the Phillies to sign the 30-year-old lefty. Smyly had an 8.42 ERA with Texas and an 8.06 FIP to match it. Smyly had a below-average 20.6 percent strikeout rate and was allowing over 50 percent hard contact. He'd been a usable fantasy option in the past before Tommy John surgery in 2017, but this year is nothing more than a name to be aware of in NL-Only or very deep leagues in case he makes a few decent starts.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBaller
