Tigers fans do you know anything about Drew Smyly?
I bought a box of Bowman Sterling and pulled this guy. I was wondering if he is going to make it to the Big Leagues. One reason why I asked it was my first time pulling a RC superfractor

Edit 5-20-14 I havent been able to watch a tigers game when Smyly is pitching. How is he doing this year?

He is projected as the 5th starter for 2013. He was up this past season and didnt do really good. They had him in the bullpen during the playoffs. I saw him pitch when he was at Erie in 2011. Really nice guy. Talked to my son about being a ballplayer and working hard to make your dreams come true. Congrats on the pull, wish it had been me.

He beat this Adam Wilk, who is going to South Korea, for the 5th starter spot.

The previous posters are correct. He will be Leyland's 5th starter in the rotation. I would hang onto the card. He is a tall lefty and I think he has some potential.

Currently collecting anything and everything Mike Trout. Also have a small PC of Bo Jackson. My life would be complete if I could find a 1998 Leaf Rookies and Stars Troy Glaus RC to complete my set. That is the only card I need, and I have been looking for it since 1998!!!!!!!!!!!

Its looks like him or Porcello (if he doesn't get traded) for the 5th spot in the rotation. Nice pull

RE: Tigers fans do you know anything about Drew Smyly?
Not sure why yankeescop thinks Smyly "didn't do really good" this year. I watched Smyly all year. He was a 23 year old rookie (22 on opening day) this year. Posted a 3.99 era with a 3:1 strikeout to walk ratio and almost a strikeout per inning with a whip of 1.27 in 18 starts and 6 appearances out of the pen. Not too shabby for a rookie who started the previous season in Class A and finished in AA.

I would hold on to him if I were you. I like his makeup. He takes the mound and is not intimidated. He has great mechanics and I can see him in the future being a legitimate #3 starter, maybe even better.
