LHP Drew Smyly was withdrawn from his Sunday start after three innings when a blood blister appeared on his left middle finger. “The pitch before (Zack) Cozart he felt something,” manager Jim Leyland said. “Then he (Cozart) hit the home run and he (Smyly) threw a couple more pitches and it was just huge.
