Dominic Smith homered and scored two runs as the Mets bested the Marlins 8-1 on Saturday.
Smith went up to get a Javier Guerra offering in the eighth inning, lifting it over the right field fence to pad the Mets' lead. He's now homered twice in his nine MLB games, two of his five hits in 29 at-bats since his promotion earlier this month. Just 22 years old, Smith may learn on a curve but is a name to keep in mind for the future of the first base position. Aug 19 - 11:40 PM

Dominic Smith swatted an opposite-field, two-run shot for his first major league home run in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Sonny Gray shut out the Mets through the first six frames, but Smith followed a Wilmer Flores walk by lifting one just over the left-field wall. In addition to it being his first big league homer, it was also Smith's first two RBI. He has a hit in four of five games with the big club.

Dominic Smith went 1-for-3 with a single in his big league debut against the Phillies on Friday.

Smith singled to center field off of Nick Pivetta in the fourth inning, collecting his first major league hit. He was double-switched out of the game in the bottom of the sixth. Smith should see fairly regular playing time down the stretch, but he might not stand out enough on the power front to be worth using in standard mixed leagues right away.

Dominic Smith is batting sixth and playing first base in his major league debut Friday against the Phillies.

Pretty much as expected. With Smith at first, Wilmer Flores is playing third base tonight. Asdrubal Cabrera is out of the lineup for a third straight game.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Smith's debut is certainly exciting, but the right-handed bats on the Mets side may be the most intriguing against Nick Pivetta. While Pivetta himself is right-handed, he's exhibited reverse-splits this season, allowing an absurd 3.12 HR/9 rate to RHBs with a 44.7 Hard%, so there is tons of potential upside in targeting him with bats. Pivetta has allowed a 46.3 Hard% since the ASB overall, so he could be in for another rough night.

Mets recalled 1B Dominic Smith from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Fernando Salas was designated for assignment in the corresponding move. Listed as MLB.com's No. 41 overall prospect, Smith has been among the top hitters in the minor leagues this season, cruising to a .330 average with 16 homers and 76 RBI over 457 at-bats in the Pacific Coast League. Now that Lucas Duda and Jay Bruce have both moved on, Smith should occupy close to an every-day role at first base. The 22-year-old will surely take his lumps in the early going, but he definitely has enough upside to warrant fantasy consideration.

The Mets will promote Dominic Smith to the major leagues on Friday.

He'll join the team Friday in Philadelphia. We knew he would arrive shortly after the Mets dealt long-time first baseman Lucas Duda to the Rays and now Smith's day has finally come. Rated No. 41 on MLB.com's top prospects, the 22-year-old has dazzled in the minors this year, hitting a robust .330 average with 16 homers and 76 RBI over 457 at-bats for Triple-A Las Vegas. New York's future is now with Smith and top shortstop prospect Amed Rosario both in the big leagues after months of anticipation.
Aug 10 - 5:40 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Monday that prospect first baseman Dominic Smith should be called up sometime in August.

Alderson addressed Smith's status when discussing Amed Rosario's promotion to the majors. "I think it's important for guys like Rosario and Smith to get more than just playing time in September," said Alderson. "I think to really make it meaningful, it needs to be a little bit longer than that." After the Mets traded Lucas Duda last week, it's just a matter of time. Smith has been on a tear with Triple-A Las Vegas of late and is batting .340/.394/.534 with 16 homers and 72 RBI over 106 games on the year. There's some question about the power, but he should be worth owning in deeper mixed leagues as soon as he gets the call.

Mets prospect Dominic Smith homered and doubled on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Smith also drew a walk, and stole his first base of the season. With Lucas Duda gone, it's just a matter of time before Smith is playing first base for the Mets. We said that about Amed Rosario, too, but the opening is much more obvious for the former. He can really hit, and you should be ready to acquire him in any fantasy format.
Jul 31 - 1:37 PM

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets are expected to call up first base prospect Dominic Smith "soon."

Multiple outlets reported Thursday that a Smith promotion wasn't imminent even after Lucas Duda was traded. However, the club is probably just waiting for more trade dominoes to fall with Jay Bruce, Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera all likely to be dealt in the next few days. Top prospect Amed Rosario also figures to join Smith in the majors soon. A first-round pick in the 2013 Draft, Smith sports a .337/.390/.524 batting line with 15 homers at Triple-A Las Vegas this season. Those numbers are inflated by the environment at Vegas, but Smith is one of the top first base prospects in the game and is worth stashing now in deep formats.

MLB.com's Anthony DiComo said it "doesn't sound like" Dominic Smith's promotion to the major leagues is imminent.

The expectation was that Smith would be called up in short order to replace Lucas Duda. However, it looks like the Mets still aren't ready to give Smith the keys to first base, preferring to split reps between Jay Bruce, Wilmer Flores and T.J. Rivera. Smith outgrew Triple-A a long time ago and has to be getting frustrated. The same could be said of top shortstop prospect Amed Rosario, who is also overdue for a promotion. We're not sure what's holding up New York's youth movement but hopefully Smith and Rosario won't have to toil in the minors for too much longer.

Mets prospect Dominic Smith hit his 14th homer of the year on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Smith also singled. There have not been many hitters better than Smith in the month of July, and his OPS for the month is now 1.106. He's also a solid defender at first, so no, you're not looking at a future DH. Not yet, anyway. If/when the Mets deal Lucas Duda, Smith should get the call. He's ready.
Jul 24 - 1:15 PM

Mets prospect Dominic Smith picked up two more hits on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

One of those hits was a double, his 25th of the season. Against right-handed pitchers, he's hitting .354/.405/.521. Obviously his numbers against southpaws aren't as good, but an OPS of .774 is nothing to complain about. Smith can rake, and the Mets should find a chance for him to play before the end of the year.
Jul 17 - 1:21 PM

Mets prospect Dominic Smith went 2-for-4 with a double on Thursday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

The double gives Smith 24 on the year, and 36 extra-base hits overall. He's going to hit a lot of singles, but the power he's found over the last month or so is fun to see. If the Mets are able to trade Lucas Duda this summer, Smith should get time with the club. If they don't, he still has a chance to see time with New York when rosters expand.
Jul 14 - 1:32 PM

Mets prospect Dominic Smith went 2-for-4 on Wednesday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

One of the hits was a double, and Smith also scored a run. It'd be nice to see a little more power out of the 2014 first-round pick, but it's tough to complain about a player hitting .321 in the PCL as a 21-year-old. It's unlikely he gets a chance to play for the Mets in 2017, but if he keeps hitting, he at least gives them a tough decision to make. He should be on your dynasty roster by now.
Jun 8 - 2:12 PM

Mets prospect Dominic Smith picked up two more hits for Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.

Smith went 2-for-4 on the day, and also knocked in his first run of the 2017 season. He hasn't gone deep yet, but he does have two doubles, so he's not just dinking-and-dunking. Even if he's not the prototypical masher, Smith's ability to hit for average makes him one of the better first base prospect in baseball -- fantasy and real-life.
