I disagree with this.

Smyly is a hard-throwing lefty who went 5-.Allegri announced his departure last week amid claims of losing the trust of president Andrea Agnelli, along with directors Pavel Nedved and to a lesser extent Fabio Paratici.Allegri said, “We talked, expressed our ideas on what was best for Juven0 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.02 WHIP this spring, while striking out 31 batters in 39 1/3 innings. He did nothing to lose the job, but got squeezed out thanks to a numbers game and the spring emeays Blades boss Chris Wilder is snapping up Dutch striker Zivkovic in a surprise deal.Wilder is adding to his Premier League high fliers by signing the former Ajax Amsterdam talent who is playing in China. Zivkovic, 23, flew in for talks and a medicargence of Porcello. Smyly will not be in middle relief for the entire season. If he’s stuck in the bullpen, he will be at the very top of the list of Tigers who could supplant Bruce Rondon as the closer. And if something happens to a starter, Smyly steps in and becomes a great source of strikeouts, ERA, and especially WHIP.

Smyly has essentially become what Aroldis Chapman was at this point last season — a talented lefty relegated to middle relief, who will undoubtedly emerge as either a starter or closer by June. Either way, now is the time to pick Smyly up, not drop him.
