Smith will have his $7 million option picked up by the Mariners, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith put together a serviceable campaign in 2016, driving in a career-high 63 runs despite a .249 batting average. Due to this, Seattle decided to bring him back and keep him in the outfield with Norichika Aoki and Leonys Martin.

Smith (foot) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the A's, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

His night ended prematurely Wednesday after Smith was hit on the foot by a pitch, but evidently it was a very minor setback as Smith will return to right field and the two-hole to face Kendall Graveman. It's a small sample (15 at-bats), but Smith is batting over .500 in his career against Graveman.

Smith left Wednesday's game after getting hit on the foot by a pitch, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ben Gamel came in to pinch run for Smith, who will presumably go for testing to see if it's a fracture or just a bruise. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Smith went 2-for-2 with two home runs, three runs, four RBI and a walk in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Smith paced Seattle's offense with a pair of homers off Doug Fister, taking him deep for a solo shot in the third and a three-run blast in the fourth. After going homerless from July 8 through Sept. 5, the 33-year-old has caught fire over his last 11 games, smacking five home runs while driving in 11. The 33-year-old is enjoying another productive season for the Mariners, slashing .264/.350/.443 with 16 home runs and a career-high 60 RBI in 354 at-bats. He's next long ball will match his previous best from 2010, when he was with the Rockies.

Smith hit a grand slam for his 14th homer of the season Tuesday at the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has struggled badly in the second half but recently has started to pick it up. He was batting .193/.283/.261 in the second half with no homers as of Sept. 5, but in the last seven games he has eight hits in 21 at-bats with three home runs and a double.

Smith is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rangers, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Smith finished a triple short of the cycle Wednesday, going 3-for-3 with a double, a homer, a walk and three runs against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Way back at the beginning of July, Smith fashioned a four-game homer streak that included consecutive three-hit games. Between that pair of three-hit efforts and Wednesday's game, he hit just .212/.294/.345 with three homers and 30 strikeouts in 113 at-bats -- and, needless to say, no three-hit games. But it's no big news that Smith is what he is: a platoon player with limited fantasy appeal.

Smith is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith is hitting a mere .160 against lefties this season, making Tuesday's matchup against Cole Hamels very unfavorable for the 33-year-old. With Smith sitting out, Guillermo Heredia will start in left field and hit ninth.
