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.
Apr 7 - 3:10 PM

Seth Smith will serve as the Orioles' leadoff hitter on Opening Day against the Blue Jays.

Smith doesn't exactly scream leadoff hitter, but he batted .256/.351/.431 against right-handers last season. Hyun Soo Kim, the other primary candidate for the leadoff spot, is hitting sixth. The full lineup for Baltimore against Marco Estrada: Smith RF, Adam Jones CF, Manny Machado 3B, Chris Davis 1B, Mark Trumbo DH, Welington Castillo C, Kim LF, Jonathan Schoop 2B, J.J. Hardy SS. Kevin Gausman will start for the Orioles.
Apr 3 - 10:47 AM

Seth Smith (hamstring) is scheduled to return to game action on Saturday.

It's unclear if it will be in Grapefruit League play or if he'll take at-bats in a minor league game, but the veteran outfielder is clearly making progress toward a return. He has been sidelined since March 8 due to a hamstring injury and has only had 11 at-bats this spring.
Mar 24 - 6:45 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Seth Smith (hamstring) still has enough time to get ready for the start of the season.

Smith hasn't played since March 8 due to a right hamstring injury and has only logged 11 at-bats all spring. He can't afford a setback at this point, but it's possible he'll get some at-bats on the minor league side to catch up.
Mar 21 - 11:03 AM

Seth Smith (hamstring) is expected to return to Grapefruit League action early next week.

The outfielder has been held out of action since last weekend due to a nagging hamstring injury. He has been progressing nicely in recent days though and is almost ready to go. He should be healthy and available for the start of the regular season.
Mar 18 - 12:54 PM

Seth Smith's right hamstring isn't progressing as hoped.

Smith was held out all weekend due to the issue, but the healing process has been slow. Still, the Orioles say they are just being cautious. It doesn't sound like something that will impact his availability for the start of the season.
Mar 15 - 9:49 AM

Seth Smith (hamstring) is back to doing baseball activities Monday.

Smith took the weekend off due to some mild hamstring soreness. It sounds like he's pretty much already over the injury.
Mar 13 - 11:05 AM

Seth Smith was held out of Saturday's Grapefruit League contest due to a sore hamstring.

The O's said that he would have played had it been a regular season game. Smith is likely to play everyday against right-handed pitching and looks like an interesting option in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.
