Seth Smith's solo home run was the difference in a win against the Athletics on Sunday.
Smith, who finished 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning with a solo blast off of reliever Ryan Dull. He finishes the season hitting .248/.330/.443 with 12 home runs and 42 RBI. Smith will be back with the Mariners next year in a similar platoon role. Sun, Oct 4, 2015 06:11:00 PM

Seth Smith went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a two-run home run as the Mariners trampled the Angels on Monday.

Smith put the Mariners up 2-1 in the second inning when he ripped a Garrett Richards offering into the seats in right field. He added an RBI double in the fifth to make it a 4-1 game. Starting almost exclusively against right-handed pitching, Smith is batting .251/.328/.458 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI on the year.

Seth Smith hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Smith's homer in the first inning turned out to be the deciding margin in the game. It was his only hit in three at-bats. The homer was Smith's 10th homer of the year, giving him 31 RBI and 40 runs to go with a .252/.328/.452 line.

Batting cleanup for the first time this season, Seth Smith homered and walked against the Indians on Friday.

The Mariners hit Nelson Cruz third tonight with Robinson Cano sitting again, leaving Smith to hit cleanup. Even though it worked, we wouldn't expect Smith to remain there Saturday.

Seth Smith led off Tuesday's game with a home run, but finished 1-for-5 as the Mariners lost to the Orioles.

Smith rudely greeted Miguel Gonzalez with a blast to right field, his fourth homer of the year. The veteran has seen a vast majority of his plate appearances against right-handed pitching, but has more or less an even platoon split thus far. He's batting .255/.310/.480 overall with 10 RBI.

Seth Smith singled, doubled and tripled against the Astros on Sunday.

Alas, the home run was not to be. Smith finished the contest 3-for-4 and tossed in an outfield assist for good measure. The strong game pushed his batting line to .276/.333/.483, with one home run, eight runs scored and six RBI. These numbers are more or less in-line with his career-slash of .265/.346/.452. A groin injury from earlier in the season no longer seems to be an issue.

Seth Smith is in the Mariners starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Smith has been battling groin tightness which has kept him out of the lineup since Tuesday. He'll assume his regular second slot in the Mariners lineup against opposing right-hander Sonny Gray, though he's serving as the designated hitter as opposed to returning to left field.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Friday that Seth Smith (groin) was feeling better and could return to the lineup on Saturday.

The veteran outfielder has been battling groin tightness that has sidelined him the past few days. Rickie Weeks and Justin Ruggiano have been seeing extra time in the outfield in his absence.

Seth Smith is not in Wednesday's lineup due to groin tightness.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Smith was unavailable in Tuesday's game due to the issue, and he'll sit out again Wednesday. The good news is that it's being considered day-to-day at this point. Nelson Cruz started in right field with Rickie Weeks serving as the DH Wednesday.

Making his Mariners debut, Seth Smith tripled and doubled twice Monday versus the Angels.

One might not guess that Smith hit as many as nine triples in a season (2011). Last year, he had five in 443 at-bats for the Padres. He's now tied with Rajai Davis and Ian Kinsler for 52nd place on the active list with 27 career triples (and, at 32, he's younger than both of those players). But enough triples facts. Smith is a perfectly solid hitter, and he should be a fine fit in the two hole for the Mariners against right-handers. He just won't be a big fantasy asset in the process.

Seth Smith (ankle) is in the Mariners lineup on Wednesday.

Smith was scratched from Monday's game and had a scheduled off-day on Tuesday. The ankle injury was never considered serious. He should be ready for Opening Day.

Seth Smith (ankle) was a precautionary scratch on Monday, but is not expected to miss any significant time.

Smith's getting a scheduled off-day on Tuesday. It looks like he should be good to go for the season-opener.

Seth Smith was scratched from the Mariners' lineup on Monday due to ongoing ankle soreness.

Smith also missed Sunday's game, but the Mariners don't seem all that concerned. His readiness for the Mariners' season-opener is not in question at the moment.

Seth Smith (ankle) is in the Mariners' starting lineup for Monday's Cactus League game.

Smith was scratched from Sunday's game with a sore ankle. It's obviously not a serious injury.
Mon, Mar 30, 2015 10:34:00 AM

Seth Smith was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore ankle.

"He rolled his ankle a little bit yesterday," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "It's a little swollen. It's just precautionary. We're not going to let him play today. Seventh game of the World Series, he'd be in there." Expect Smith back out there in a day or two.
