As announced late Saturday night by the Rays’ official Twitter account, left-hander Drew Smyly has been activated from the disabled list and will start Sunday in Tampa Bay’s series finale against the Rangers. Kirby Yates was optioned to Triple-A Durham to clear out a 25-man roster spot.

Smyly has been sidelined since the first week of May with a¬†partially-torn labrum in his left shoulder. The 26-year-old southpaw had a 2.70 ERA in three starts before the injury and boasts a 1.96 ERA in 10 total appearances (64 1/3 innings) since joining the Rays in last summer’s David Price trade.

Smyly is under contractual control with Tampa Bay through the 2018 season.
