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.
Apr 30 - 1:07 AM

Seth Smith is starting in the designated hitter spot and batting second for the Mariners in Friday's game against the Yankees.

It's the second game in a row that he's been in the No. 2 spot. Smith sports a .267/.450/.467 batting line with one homer in the early going.
Apr 15 - 3:10 PM

Seth Smith (groin) will not play in Saturday's Cactus League contest against the Rockies.

Smith was a late scratch to Friday's lineup due to the sore groin, so the M's want to play things safe and hold him out of a meaningless game. He's expected to be ready for Opening Day.
Apr 2 - 8:58 AM

Seth Smith was scratched from Friday's Cactus League contest due to tightness in his leg.

Daniel Robertson is starting in right field in his place on Friday. Smith is expected to be fine in a couple of days and his availability for Opening Day doesn't appear to be in doubt.
Apr 1 - 9:10 PM

Seth Smith delivered a pair of doubles and knocked in three runs in a 10-8 win over the Rockies on Thursday in Cactus League action.

Smith had a two-run double off Tyler Chatwood in the second inning and later plated another run on a double off Yohan Flande in the fourth. The 33-year-old batted .248 with 12 home runs and a .773 OPS over 136 games in 2015 and figures to be on the strong side of a platoon in right field this season. Franklin Gutierrez is in line to get starts against left-handed pitchers.
Mar 24 - 8:04 PM

Seth Smith went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

With his two-hit day, Smith is batting .545 with a 1.247 OPS in 22 spring at-bats. He's slated for a platoon with Franklin Gutierrez, who terrorizes left-handed pitching, but Smith may at the very least be earning himself a few more starts with his strong Cactus League performance.
Mar 19 - 7:23 PM

Seth Smith is expected to miss a day or two with minor groin tightness.

It doesn't sound like a major concern. Smith is expected to platoon with Franklin Gutierrez in right field this season.
Mar 15 - 11:40 AM

Seth Smith finished 2-for-3 with an RBI as the Mariners topped the Rangers on Sunday in Arizona.

Smith smacked an RBI double off Rangers starter Nick Tepesch in the top of the first inning and then singled off Phil Klein in the top of the fifth. The left-handed-hitting corner outfielder is now 6-for-7 this spring. He will again operate in an active platoon role with the Mariners in 2016.
Mar 6 - 6:48 PM

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.
