Seth Smith (foot) was hitless in three at-bats Thursday against the Athletics.

Smith departed Wednesday's game after being hit on the foot by a pitch, but he didn't have to miss a start. The Mariners are slated to face righties the next two days, so Smith will be back in there.
Sep 30 - 8:13 AM

Seth Smith was lifted for a pinch-runner after being hit in the foot during Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Smith was struck in the foot by a pitch in the top of the sixth inning. Ben Gamel subsequently came on to pinch-run for him. The Mariners should provide an update as to Smith's status later on Wednesday.
Sep 28 - 4:25 PM

Seth Smith blasted a pair of home runs and plated four on Sunday, powering the Mariners to a 7-3 victory over the Astros.

Smith tagged Astros starter Doug Fister with a solo shot in the third inning then chased him from the game with a three-run bomb the following frame. He finished the day 2-for-2 plus a walk and scored three times. After the impressive afternoon, he's now hitting .264/.350/.443 with 16 homers and 60 RBI on the season.
Sep 18 - 6:56 PM

Seth Smith launched a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-0 win over the Angels.

With the Mariners already holding a 4-0 lead in the sixth inning, insurance wasn't really needed here, but Smith provided it nonetheless. This was his second granny of the season. The veteran outfielder is slashing .262/.349/.426 with 14 home runs and 55 RBI over 340 at-bats.
Sep 14 - 1:01 AM

Seth Smith went 3-for-3 with a homer, a double, a walk and three runs scored Wednesday against the Rangers.

Easily the best game he's had in a while. Smith has been losing playing time because of his lack of production. The start tonight was his second of the month and third in the Mariners' last 12 games. He'll go back to starting against right-handers regularly if he can keep hitting.
Sep 8 - 1:19 AM

Seth Smith (foot) is back in Monday's lineup versus the Angels.

Smith was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a bruised right foot, but he's feeling better now. He'll bat second and serve as the DH against Ricky Nolasco.
Aug 15 - 7:19 PM

Seth Smith was scratched from the Mariners' lineup with a bruised right foot.

Smith fouled a ball off his foot Saturday and was sore when he got to the park Sunday. Consider him day-to-day. Dae-Ho Lee has taken his spot in the lineup.
Aug 14 - 2:34 PM

Seth Smith hit a third-inning grand slam Sunday in the Mariners' 9-4 victory over the Orioles.

It came off Ubaldo Jimenez, but it still counts. Smith has now gone deep in four straight games and he suddenly has an .825 OPS with 10 homers and 38 RBI on the season. The veteran outfielder entered the month of July with a .765 OPS.
Jul 3 - 7:20 PM

Seth Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

Smith launched a Chris Tillman offering deep into the night in the fifth inning, helping to break open a 1-0 game in the process. For the season, he is slashing .263/.361/.404 with seven homers and 29 RBI over 198 at-bats. If he can catch a little hot streak in the second half of the season, he would have a shot at matching or surpassing the career-best 17 homers he posted with the Rockies in 2010.
Jul 1 - 1:39 AM

Seth Smith went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Indians on Monday.

After a great April, Smith is hitting just .210 over his last 27 games (21 starts). He still has the OBP to justify a spot high in the Mariners order even during this slump, but it's possible he'll be dropped if he doesn't get it going again.
Jun 7 - 1:26 AM

Seth Smith cranked two home runs in an epic beatdown of his former team the Padres on Tuesday.

Smith took James Shields deep for a three-run homer in the third inning, then added a solo shot off Padres reliever Luis Perdomo in the fifth. He wrapped up his day going 2-for-4 with a walk plus four RBI and three runs scored. The 33-year-old outfielder shows no signs of aging. He is slashing .269/.392/.438 with six longballs, 26 runs scored, and 22 RBI.
May 31 - 8:37 PM

Seth Smith went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Astros.

Smith came up with a big two-run single in the seventh inning to give the Mariners a brief lead. The multi-hit game was his third in the past five games, raising his average to .284 with a .873 OPS in 26 games. His on-base average of .400, buoyed by 14 walks, is fifth-best in the American League.
May 6 - 12:50 AM

Seth Smith went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in the first inning against the Royals in Saturday's 6-0 victory.

When shielded from left-handed pitching, Smith is a quality big-league player. He's currently hitting .298/.423/.544 in 71 plate appearances, and Saturday's solo shot was his fourth home run of the year. Guys like Smith are useful plug-and-play options in daily leagues when the matchup is favorable. He perhaps has become viable in weekly leagues, too, as fantasy owners can be confident that manager Scott Servais won't ruin his batting average by allowing him to face many southpaws. In a strict platoon like this, though, he's certainly not a top-50 fantasy outfielder, no matter how pretty the overall slash line may look.
May 1 - 1:40 AM

Seth Smith homered for the only run of the game in the Mariners' win over the Royals on Friday.

Smith also walked twice. He's usurped Kyle Seager's position as the No. 2 hitter against righties, and with a .424 OBP to date, he's running away with the spot now. It still doesn't give him much in the way of mixed-league value, though, at least not unless we're talking OBP leagues.
