Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Rays starter Drew Smyly will be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the rotation on Sunday in Texas against the Rangers.
Smyly has been out since early May due to a partial labrum tear in his left shoulder. Though the results weren’t pretty, he was able to get through four minor league rehab starts without issue.
Smyly, 26, came to the Rays at the trade deadline last year in the three-way David Price trade that involved the Tigers and the Mariners. In 10 starts for the Rays, the lefty has a 1.96 ERA with a 65/14 K/BB ratio over 64 1/3 innings.
