Smyly roughed up in Triple-A debut
DETROIT -- Drew Smyly's tuneup at Triple-A Toledo on Saturday before he makes his Major League debut later this week ended up the kind of outing usually seen at the end of Spring Training. The 22-year-old left-hander began his second pro season by yielding three runs on three hits and two walks while recording just five outs.

Smyly threw 30 of his 50 pitches for strikes. All of the damage, as well as 39 of those pitches, came in the second inning, according to the Toledo Blade. He gave up a triple, two doubles and an 11-pitch walk in his final four batters, according to the paper.

Smyly is scheduled to start Thursday's series finale against the Rays at Comerica Park, having won the fifth-starter competition out of Spring Training. He had never pitched above Double-A until Saturday.
