Drew Smyly Named FSL Pitcher of the Week


Earlier today Drew Smyly was named the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week. In his third start since returning from the disabled list Smyly dominated the Daytona Cubs in seven innings of hitless, shutout ball. The 22-year-old, left-handed prospect allowed only two balls to leave the infield in his lone star last week. Smyly also did not allow a runner to advance past first base. He struck out seven and issued three walks in the longest start of his brief career.

Entering tonights game against the Brevard County Manatees Smyly has a 3.03 ERA and 29 strikeouts over 35 2/3 innings. It’s great to see Smyly tormenting Florida State League batters after missing over a month of action on the disabled list. Drew Smyly was drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft, out of the University of Arkansas.

Congrats to Drew Smyly on yet another outstanding week of baseball down on the farm!
