Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Drew Smyly will start Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers after recovering from a shoulder injury, according to the Tampa Tribune. Smyly has not pitched for the Rays since May 5 after suffering a torn labrum in his left shoulder, but he is ready to return after electing to rest and rehab the injury rather than undergoing season-ending surgery. "I feel really good that I've worked hard the past three months to get back to where I am. I feel healthy," Smyly said. "A lot of guys counted me out. There was probably a day or two when I wasn't sure if I would pitch again this year as well. And here I am, getting ready to go. So I am really, really excited. I feel strong. I feel ready to go." The 26-year-old was able to throw 94 pitches in his fourth and final rehab start for Triple-A Durham.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Drew Smyly will make at least two more rehab starts as he recovers from a shoulder injury, and he could return to the big club by Aug. 18, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Smyly will soon move to Triple-A Durham for his rehab and face hitters closer to the major league level. Neither of his rehab starts have gone well, though it is not considered a significant issues as long as he is still throwing his pitches without any pain. Smyly has made only three major league starts this season, as he began the season on the 15-day disabled list because of shoulder tendinitis, and he was placed back on the DL on May 9 because of the current issue. He was then transferred to the 60-day DL on May 13 when it was determined he had a torn labrum.

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly, who has not pitched since May 5 because of a should injury, will begin a rehab assignment Sunday, according to the Tampa Tribune. Smyly suffered a minor labrum tear in his left shoulder but did not need surgery. Surgery would have ended Smyly's season, so he elected to treat the injury with rest and rehabilitation after seeking a second opinion. Smyly threw 41 pitches in a simulated game earlier this week and manager Kevin Cash praised his progress. "Really good session [for Smyly]," Cash said. "He threw 20 pitches. Sat down, threw 21 pitches. All the reports on all the pitches, the stuff, the locations have been very positive." The lefty is expected to need an extended rehab stint, which likely means he will not return to the Rays until late August or early September.
