Smith is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With left-hander John Lamb on the hill for the Reds, the Mariners will use Franklin Gutierrez in left field in place of Smith. Smith generally sits out against left-handed pitchers, but he should draw back into the lineup for Sunday's matchup against righty Alfredo Simon.

Smith went 1-for-3 with two walks and three runs in Tuesday's 10-0 win over the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

As per usual, Smith entered the lineup with right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound, and his keen eye at the plate allowed him to grind out a few at-bats against the Orioles staff. Smith will probably remain a strict platoon player for the rest of his career, but he's often a useful low-cost DFS option when he's in the lineup against a right-hander.

Smith got the start at DH on Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in a 4-3 loss to the Yankees.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's off to a strong start to his 2016, slashing .318/.464/.500 through 18 at-bats with a 6:5 BB:K. Smith won't offer much power or speed, but he could be a solid source of runs and RBI this season if he continues to hit near to the top of the M's order when he's in the lineup.
