Tyler, Tx (KETK) — Former Tyler Lee Red Raider Burch Smith is back in the big leagues.
The Padres announced that the righty would be called up from Triple-A Tucson this afternoon.
Earlier this season, the 23-year-old made his MLB debut.
In three starts he has an 18.41 ERA, but also struck out 11 in only 7.1 innings.
If Smith keeps his strikeouts up and keeps the ball in the park, he may have a shot to stick in the bigs.
