Seth Smith (eye) is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

Smith's eye swelled up Thursday after a foul tip off the ground bounced up and hit him in the face. He remained in the game and even homered, but the O's have decided he needs a little down time. Hyun Soo Kim is starting in Smith's place.

The Orioles are "monitoring" Seth Smith after a foul ball bounced off his face on Thursday.

Smith stayed in the game and even hit a home run after his injury but the swelling in his eye worsened to the point where he wouldn't have been able to bat in the ninth inning. He also complained of blurred vision, which could indicate a concussion. It would be a surprise to see Smith in the lineup on Friday.
May 18 - 8:24 PM

Seth Smith clubbed a solo homer and added a single Tuesday versus the Nationals.

Smith's solo blast with one out in the sixth inning broke up Max Scherzer's no-hitter. With a .311/.408/.541 batting line, Smith has been incredibly productive for the Orioles. Remember when the Mariners decided it was a good idea to trade him for Yovani Gallardo?
May 9 - 11:36 PM

Seth Smith went 2-for-4 and scored a run as the Orioles topped the White Sox on Friday night in Baltimore.

Smith has done a terrific job as a table-setter atop the O's lineup against right-handed pitching. He singled to lead off the game and came around to score the first run when Jonathan Schoop was plunked with the bases loaded. Smith is now hitting .302/.403/.509 with a pair of homers and six RBI on the season.
May 5 - 10:27 PM

Seth Smith went a perfect 4-for-4 with two RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Smith also walked in the game, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. It was a two-run double with the bases loaded in the fourth inning that did the most damage for the 34-year-old. The offseason trade that sent Smith from the Mariners to the O's in exchange for Yovani Gallardo seemed uneven at the time, and it's still looking that way. Through Thursday, Smith is hitting .286/.397/.510 while serving as the Orioles' leadoff hitter when in the lineup.
May 4 - 11:00 PM

Seth Smith went 2-for-5 with a walk, a run and an RBI in an 11-inning, 5-4 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

He was the key to two of the most important plays of the game. He came to the plate in the second inning with a runner on first. Smith singled to center field and ended up running all the way around the bases when the Rays made two errant throws on the play. In the 11th and decisive inning, Smith drew a bases-loaded walk to drive in the winning run in walk-off fashion. The veteran outfielder is batting .263/.378/.526 with two homers and four RBI while platooning in right field and hitting lead-off versus right-handed starting pitchers.

Seth Smith (hamstring) has returned to the Orioles' lineup for Monday's game against the Rays.

Smith hasn't played since last Tuesday due to a right hamstring strain. He'll bat leadoff in his return Monday against Rays ace Chris Archer.
Apr 24 - 2:54 PM

Seth Smith (hamstring) could be available to pinch-hit on Saturday.

Smith hasn't played since straining his hamstring on Tuesday. He was able to run a bit on Friday and should be back in the lineup within a day or two. Mark Trumbo will draw another start in right field Saturday against Boston.
Apr 22 - 5:56 PM

Seth Smith tested out his right hamstring with some running Friday.

Smith is feeling a little better, but he could still wind up on the disabled list depending on how Friday's running goes. Mark Trumbo is in right field and Trey Mancini is in the designated hitter spot Friday.
Apr 21 - 4:34 PM

Seth Smith's hamstring has not improved since Tuesday.

If he feels the same on Friday, the Orioles could place him on the disabled list. Baltimore's outfield is shorthanded right now with Smith hurting and Joey Rickard still working his way back from a sprained middle finger. Trey Mancini and Mark Trumbo could see more time in the outfield if Smith lands on the DL.
Apr 20 - 7:10 PM

Seth Smith (hamstring) remains out of the Orioles' lineup Thursday versus the Reds.

Hyun Soo Kim will take a turn at leadoff and play left field, with Mark Trumbo in right and the hot-hitting Trey Mancini on the bench. Smith suffered a right hamstring strain Tuesday against the Reds and could eventually wind up on the 10-day disabled list. He's day-to-day for now.
Apr 20 - 3:05 PM

Seth Smith left Tuesday's game against the Reds with a right hamstring strain.

That could mean a trip to the new 10-day disabled list. Smith was 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored before getting replaced in the sixth inning by Trey Mancini. The 34-year-old outfielder also dealt with hamstring problems this spring but was off to a good start offensively for the O's.
Apr 18 - 9:40 PM

Seth Smith slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in Friday’s 6-5 win over the Yankees.

Smith went 2-for-4 with two runs scored on the night. The Orioles were down 5-1 at one point, but Manny Machado connected for a three-run homer in the fifth before Smith took Tyler Clippard deep in the seventh. Acquired from the Mariners for Yovani Gallardo over the winter, Smith should see plenty of at-bats out of the leadoff spot against right-handed starters. That’s obviously a favorable spot, so he’s worth keeping an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues.
Apr 7 - 10:56 PM

Seth Smith is starting in right field and batting leadoff for the Orioles in Friday's game versus the Yankees.

The O's are rolling out the same lineup they had on Opening Day, as it looks to be their regular order against righties. That means Smith and Hyun Soo Kim at the corner outfield spots.
