Smith is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Smith is getting another day off against a left-handed starter, this time Toronto's Mark Buehrle. The right-handed Rickie Weeks and Willie Bloomquist are starting in the corner outfield positions, which could be an indication the Mariners are planning to use Smith much less against lefties.

Smith is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

Smith's absence from the lineup against a right-handed pitcher in the Red Sox's Steven Wright is a bit of a surprise, but manager Lloyd McClendon may want the outfielder to unwind after Saturday's three-strikeout performance. Rickie Weeks will cover left field in the series finale.

Smith went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Mariners' 2-1 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Clay Buchholz was nearly un-hittable Friday, but Smith got to him in the sixth to tie the game at 1-1. Smith has secured a role as the leadoff hitter against righties and has done well enough to keep that role even when Austin Jackson returns from the DL.

smith went 2-for-3 out of the leadoff spot Saturday and contributed a run and an RBI in the 7-2 win over Oakland.

Smith has entrenched a spot as the leadoff hitter against righties, and is a good daily option against right-handed starters any day. With that said, he is off-limits in standard leagues as he almost never sees at-bats against southpaws. After starting off the season struggling, he has slowly raised his average over the past few weeks to a modest .263.
