Smyly joins lefty Mike Minor in a depleted Rangers’ rotation that could still look to add at least two more starting pitchers. When last healthy in 2016, Smyly posted a 4.88 ERA, 2.5 BB/9 and 8.6 K/9 in 30 starts for the Rays. In his four previous seasons, however, he had a much lower ERA (3.24) with comparable peripherals. The 29-year-old will be more than 19 months removed from Tommy John surgery when he reports to Spring Training in February.
