Seth Smith hit his 13th home run of the season in the Orioles' loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Trailing 7-0 in the eighth inning, Smith at least made sure his team wouldn't get skunked when he pulled a high fastball over the right-center field wall for a solo blast. The homer gave him 31 RBI and 49 runs scored on the year. Smith has been taken out of the leadoff spot he once held, and the 34-year-old is hitting .269/.353/.459 overall. Sep 2 - 11:12 PM

Seth Smith reached base three times and drove in three runs Tuesday against the Royals.

Smith didn't really earn first base the first time, as he leaned into a pitch to get plunked to lead off the fourth inning. He eventually came around to score and later added a two-RBI double and RBI single. The three RBI was a season high for Smith.

Seth Smith homered for the second straight game Tuesday, finishing 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Rangers.

As far as meaningless home runs go, Smith's solo shot off Rangers reliever Tony Barnette in the eighth inning of an 11-1 game is up there. It all looks the same on the ledger, though, and Smith now has 11 homers in 68 games to date. The 34-year-old is hitting .264/.333/.463 amid rumors that he could be on the move ahead of this month's non-waiver trade deadline.
Jul 19 - 12:56 AM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Orioles owner Peter Angelos has given GM Dan Duquette approval to seek trades for Seth Smith and the club's top relievers.

Those "top relievers" would presumably be Zach Britton, Brad Brach, and Darren O'Day. Smith is a decent chip too as a corner outfielder who has always mashed right-handed pitching. He'd make sense for a number of contenders as a rental property. The 34-year-old is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason.
Jul 18 - 7:20 PM

Seth Smith hit his 10th home run of the season Monday in the Orioles' 3-1 victory over the Rangers.

Smith took Twins starter Felix Jorge deep to open the scoring, and the Orioles put up a quick six runs in the early frames before the Twins came back to eventually win the game. The homer was Smith's ninth of the season. The 34-year-old has fallen on some tough times in recent weeks, seeing his line drop to .250/.319/.434 with a few games left before the All-Star break.

Seth Smith hit his eighth home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

It looked like it might be the Orioles' night after Smith led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot off Indians starter Mike Clevinger, but that was the last time the O's would lead in the game. Smith finished 1-for-4 with the homer, his eighth of the season. In his first season in Baltimore, the 34-year-old is hitting a productive .272/.347/.473 while batting primarily leadoff for the Birds.

Seth Smith went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored Sunday in the Orioles' 8-5 victory over the visiting Cardinals.

Smith just missed a handful of games dude to a stiff back, but the 34-year-old outfielder looked plenty loose on Sunday afternoon. He homered off Lance Lynn in the bottom of the first, singled to lead off the bottom of the third, and then doubled in the bottom of the sixth. Smith is now slashing .271/.352/.471 with seven home runs, 15 RBI, and 26 runs scored in 48 games this season.

Seth Smith remains out of the Orioles' lineup Thursday because of a stiff back.

If there's no improvement by the weekend, the O's might put Smith on the 10-day disabled list. The veteran outfielder hasn't played since Monday. "It’s more mid-back than lower back," manager Buck Showalter told reporters Thursday. "He’s had some just general lack of range-of-motion."
Jun 15 - 12:44 PM

Seth Smith blasted a leadoff home run on Friday, helping the Orioles to dispatch of the Red Sox in their series-opener.

His first-inning shot off of Rick Porcello was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night, but made a difference in the ballgame. Smith is slashing .270/.343/.443 with five homers and 11 RBI while functioning as the club's leadoff hitter against right-handed pitching.
Jun 2 - 10:49 PM

Seth Smith went hitless in five plate appearances Tuesday, dropping his season line to .254/.328/.412.

Smith was batting .310/.392/.524 less than two weeks ago, but he's now in a 3-for-30 tailspin. Still, the Orioles haven't shown any inclination to this point to stop using him in the leadoff spot versus righties.
May 30 - 10:48 PM

Seth Smith (eye) is back in the Orioles' lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Smith eye swelled up after a foul ball bounced off his face Thursday against Detroit, but the injury only cost him one game. He's starting in right field and batting leadoff Saturday against Jays right-hander Mike Bolsinger.
