Smith is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, according to Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune.

EDGE Analysis

As is typically the case when the Mariners face a left-handed starter, as they will Tuesday in CC Sabathia, Smith will be held out in favor of Franklin Gutierrez.

Smith (foot) is in the lineup Monday against the Angels, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith will be the Mariners' DH and be batting second in the order. He's struggled at the plate recently, having gone 4-for-17 over the last seven games, but will have the chance to get back on track Monday against the struggling Ricky Nolasco.

Smith was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Athletics with a bruised right foot, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith fouled a ball off his foot during Saturday's game and reported that he was still experiencing soreness while working out Sunday morning, so the Mariners will play it safe and hold him out for the series finale. In Smith's place, Dae-Ho Lee will enter the lineup at DH.

Smith is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Franklin Gutierrez will take over in right field with a lefty in Tyler Skaggs toeing the rubber for the Angels, as is standard whenever the Mariners face a southpaw. Smith is doing his part against right-handers, batting .276/.374/.448 with 11 homers in 239 at-bats, and he should be back in the two-hole Sunday against Matt Shoemaker.

Smith is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Boston, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will mark the fifth straight game that Smith is out of the lineup as Franklin Gutierrez gets the nod in right. Smith is typically shielded from left-handers and with David Price on the mound for the Red Sox, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he is still on the bench. Smith will likely be back in the lineup Wednesday for the series finale as Rick Porcello toes the rubber for Boston.

Smith is out of the lineup Sunday for the series finale against the Cubs, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given the lack of a designated hitter and the fact that the Cubs send the left-handed Brian Matusz to the mound Sunday, Smith will sit out his third straight game in favor of Nelson Cruz in right field. He should rejoin the lineup Monday when the team returns home to host the Red Sox.

Smith is not in Friday's lineup against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty John Lester on the mound for the Cubs, Smith is getting a day off to free up a spot in the lineup for a better hitter against left-handers. Nelson Cruz will play in right field with no DH in play in a National League park.

Smith remains out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was used as a pinch-hitter in Monday's game against Toronto but has been out of the starting fold since Saturday. In his place, Franklin Gutierrez is getting the nod in left and batting second. Smith has been highly effective at the plate in July, going 16-for-52 (.308) with 11 runs and 14 RBI in 16 games.

Smith is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Mariners skipper Scott Servais will shield Smith from the Blue Jays' lefty hurler, J.A. Happ, enabling Norichika Aoki to claim another start. Smith could be at somewhat of an extended break; after Sunday's game, the Mariners are off Monday before kicking off a series with the Pirates on Tuesday. The Pirates are listing another lefty in Francisco Liriano as their projected starting pitcher for Tuesday, making it a good bet that Smith is out of the lineup for that contest, too.
