The Tigers have signed second-round pick Drew Smyly for $1.1 million. The Arkansas lefthander has excellent feel for pitching, helping him anchor the Razorbacks' weekend rotation as a redshirt sophomore this spring.
Smyly was the Razorbacks' ace in 2010, going 9-1, 2.80 with 114 strikeouts in 103 innings pitched. His signing leaves the Tigers with supplemental first-rounder Nick Castellanos, their top selection, as their key unsigned draft pick, along with fourth-rounder Cole Green, a righthander out of Texas.
