Smith and the Mariners avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $2.35 million deal, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith helped out fantasy owners by stealing 46 bases last season, but he didn't do much other than that. In 134 games, he hit .227/.300/.335 with just six homers.

Smith is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Smith stole his 45th base of the season in Saturday's game, but he also went 0-for-6, so manager Scott Servais decided to hold him out Sunday and get a right-handed hitter -- Ben Bishop -- in the lineup against Orioles southpaw John Means.

Smith is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Smith sat Wednesday against a righty and will take a seat again Friday, this time against a lefty opener in Richard Bleier (right-hander Aaron Brooks is slated to follow as the Orioles' primary pitcher). While Smith has been a plus fantasy contributor with his 44 stolen bases, he's been pretty much a replacement-level player in real life. Dylan Moore is starting again in center.

Smith went 2-for-4 with two run-scoring singles and a walk in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith made noise out of the bottom of the order, posting his first multi-RBI effort since Aug. 21. The speedy outfielder has a modest but welcome three-game hitting streak, a proverbial oasis in the desert during a month of September when Smith is hitting just .162 (6-for-37) and only has Sunday's pair of RBI on his ledger.

Smith went 1-for-3 with a pair of stolen bases and a run scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Smith did what he does best, recording his steals after he singled in the second and reached on a fielder's choice in the fourth. Smith also came around to score on Shed Long's two-run single in the fourth. The outfielder is up to 43 steals in 51 tries this season, continuing to lead the majors in that category. However, the single was his first hit in eight games, snapping an 0-for-22 skid.
