It had to be weird for Drew Smyly to show up to the clubhouse at Progressive Field in Cleveland a few hours before the game and not see any of his teammates. Stuck in Boston overnight due to plane problems, the Tigers were unable to get to Cleveland until just a couple hours before gametime, leaving Smyly, who took off to Cleveland early Sunday to rest up for his Monday start, alone just hours before first pitch.
It’s usually not this quiet 3 hours before game time… pic.twitter.com/FuoV1vbhwC

Smyly’s pre-start meal on this Monday? A pizza and a gatorade, it appears. Classic.
