The Tigers traded Smyly to the Rays on Thursday as part of a three-team deal with the Mariners, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Smyly allowed four runs on 11 hits in five innings Thursday afternoon before being traded. This was splashy trade for Detroit just minutes prior to the deadline, as they acquired David Price from the Rays. Smyly will join Tampa along with Nick Franklin, with Austin Jackson headed to Seattle. The left-handed Smyly has posted a 3.93 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 21 appearances (18 starts) this season, but he's still just 25 and isn't eligible for arbitration until after the 2015 season.
