Drew Smyly tossed four shutout innings in Thursday's win over the Braves.
The left-hander gave up two hits and a walk while striking out four. Smyly has been lights-out in his first nine spring innings, allowing just four baserunners and no runs while striking out six. His competition for the fifth spot in the Tigers' rotation, Rick Porcello, has also been terrific, posting a 3.38 ERA and 10/0 K/BB ratio. This one could go down to the wire, assuming Porcello isn't traded.
