Rays' Smyly to miss rest of season with shoulder injury

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Drew Smyly will miss the rest of the season because of a shoulder injury.

The Rays transferred Smyly to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, and said Dr. Keith Meister will examine his torn labrum in Texas on Thursday.

The 25-year-old Smyly came back from a spring bout of tendinitis to make three starts, but he began complaining of tightness in his arm during a start at Boston on May 5. He is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA.
