In 2017, the left-hander underwent Tommy John surgery, which forced him to miss the last two seasons.
In 13 games this season with the Texas Rangers, Smyly had a 1-5 record before being designated for assignment at the end of June. He then signed a minor league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, and had a 4.97 ERA in three starts.
Smyly opted out of the contract on Thursday which made him a free agent.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
