Former Razorback Smyly Traded To Rays
Former Arkansas Razorback and current Detroit Tigers left hander Drew Smyly was traded just before the trade deadline on Thursday to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Smyly was part of a three team trade that saw Rays’ ace David Price get sent to Detriot while outfielder Austin Jackson is headed to the Seattle Mariners.
Smyly was 6-9 in 17 starts for the Tigers this season and has an ERA of 3.77 with 87 strikeouts.
Price, one of the most coveted pitchers at the trade deadline, was 11-8 for Tampa with a 3.11 ERA with 189 strikeouts compared to just 23 walks.
