Drew Smyly has been ace-like for the Rays since they acquired him from the Tigers in the three-team David Price trade, boasting a 1.70 ERA and 0.755 WHIP in 47 2/3 frames. But this is Smyly’s first year as a full-time starter and he had already logged 105 1/3 innings for Detroit at the time of the July 31 swap, so Tampa Bay will shut him down early.

A third of all of yesterday’s games were shutouts. Three dudes had two-homer games. Happy 2014.

Four Phillies combine for the no-no. I’m actually surprised we haven’t seen more of these in recent years.

From FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal comes word that the Athletics have claimed Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar off revocable waivers. The two teams have until 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday to work out a trade.

Many around the game were underwhelmed when the Rays acquired Drew Smyly, Nick Franklin, and Willy Adames in the three-team David Price deal last month. It will probably take years before we can make a fair assessment, but the early returns are positive for Tampa Bay.
