Drew Smyly was stellar in a losing effort to the Angels Friday as he allowed two runs on four hits and a walk with 11 punch outs over 5.2 innings of work.
The young lefty should take Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones out to dinner after Friday's performance where he punched out a career-high 11 batters . Smyly had worked with Jones prior to Friday's start where he made a couple minor adjustments that proved to be substantial as all 11 Angels he struck out came on swinging strikes, which is pretty amazing in itself, but also considering Smyly had struck out more than seven batters in a game just two other times in his young career. He will look to carry over these improvements in his next start on Thursday at home against the White Sox. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Kevin Love (shoulder) is expected to miss at least two weeks.
Terrible break for the Cavs, as they are going to struggle without Love patrolling the paint for the next few weeks. Hopefully when Love does come back he will be 100-percent because these upcoming matchups aren't going to be easy for the Cavs. Expect Tristian Thompson to fill in for Love while he recovers over the next couple of weeks.
