Will Smith (elbow) said he expects to be on the Giants' active Opening Day roster in 2018.

"Hell, yeah," the rehabbing left-hander told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. "You never want to get too far ahead because there are always setbacks, but it’s a personal goal I’ve set for myself." Smith underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in late March and that procedure typically requires 13-15 months of rehab, but relief pitchers can sometimes get back in less than a full calendar year.

Marlins acquired RHP Lukas Schiraldi, OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Brandon Miller, and RHP Pablo Lopez from the Marlins for RHP David Phelps.

Schiraldi, a 15th-round pick in 2014, is basically a throw-in here. The 23-year-old right-hander holds a 4.65 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 284 1/3 career minor league innings and he has yet to make it out of High-A ball.

Marlins acquired RHP Pablo Lopez, OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Brandon Miller, and RHP Lukas Schiraldi from the Marlins for RHP David Phelps.

Lopez, a 21-year-old starter from Venezuela, has posted an underwhelming 5.04 ERA in 100 innings this season with High-A Modesto. His good command is a plus, but the right-hander owns a weak 6.5 career K/9 in 288 1/3 total minor league frames. He'll probably need to miss more bats to advance to the majors.

Marlins acquired RHP Brandon Miller, OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Pablo Lopez, and RHP Lukas Schiraldi from the Marlins for RHP David Phelps.

Miller, a sixth-round pick in 2016 out of Millersville University, holds a 3.32 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 145/30 K/BB ratio over his first 157 1/3 professional innings -- all in Low-A ball. The 22-year-old starter was recently ranked the No. 16 prospect in the Mariners' minor league system by MLB.com.

Marlins acquired OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Brandon Miller, RHP Pablo Lopez, and RHP Lukas Schiraldi from the Marlins for RHP David Phelps.

Hernandez is the headliner in the four-player return package for Miami. The 19-year-old center fielder got a $1.8 million signing bonus on the international market back in 2014 and was considered a top-10 prospect in the Mariners' minor league system leading into the 2017 season. He has promising tools but is a long way from reaching the big leagues.

Mariners acquired RHP David Phelps from the Marlins for OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Brandon Miller, RHP Pablo Lopez, and RHP Lukas Schiraldi.

Word of the deal was first reported late Wednesday night by MLB.com's Mark Feinsand. It just took a little while longer for the Marlins to pick through the Mariners' minor league system. Phelps will work as a setup man in Seattle for young closer Edwin Diaz, and it should be a good fit. The 30-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.69 ERA and 11.1 K/9 in 133 2/3 innings since the beginning of the 2016 season and he's averaging a career-best 94.4 mph on his fastball this summer. Phelps will be arbitration-eligible in 2018 with free agency coming in 2019.

Mets activated LHP Josh Smoker from the 10-day disabled list.

Smoker wound up missing five weeks with a left shoulder strain. He's also been diagnosed with loose bodies in his left elbow, but that will probably be taken care of with offseason surgery.

Mets designated RHP Neil Ramirez for assignment.

Ramirez has allowed 30 runs -- 25 earned -- in 31 1/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. Josh Smoker was activated Thursday in a corresponding roster move.
