Smith had a brief stint in AAA in 2019 but turned things around upon his return back to the majors, finishing the year with 46 stolen bases, which was the most in the American League.

Points leagues may seem like a slight variation from traditional 5x5 category scoring leagues but you must approach draft day with a different strategy if you wish to truly compete. Rankings themselves are a different beast altogether, as category specialists like Mallex Smith and Dee Gordon (stolen bases), Kyle Schwarber and Franmil Reyes (home runs), and the majority of closers will be devalued. Hitters who draw walks and avoid strikeouts earn more points so plate discipline is rewarded and ...

Mallex Smith 2020 Outlook: Has The Legs, But Not The Bat rotoballer.com Sat 1/11/20 1:56 PM

Mallex Smith put together a disappointing 2019 season with the Mariners after an elbow injury in spring training delayed the start of his campaign. He slashed an ugly .227/.300/.335 as the teams leadoff hitter, while clubbing six long balls with 70 runs and 37 RBI in 134 games. Smith salvaged his fantasy season by stealing a league-leading 46 bases, but his regression as a hitter raised a cause for concern. He relies on his speed, not hard contact, to reach base by spraying the ball to all ...

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mallex Smith avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $2.35 million deal, according to a source. It was the first year that he was eligible for arbitration.

Mallex Smith Won't Play on Wednesday rotoballer.com Wed 9/25/19 7:29 PM

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mallex Smith (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Houston Astros. This appears to be a routine day off here for Smith. Kyle Lewis will cover center field and bat cleanup versus righty Zack Greinke. Lewis has been fairly reliable with the bat since his call up, but won't be valuable against an elite pitcher like Greinke.

Mallex Smith Gets the Night Off rotoballer.com Wed 9/18/19 6:50 PM

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mallex Smith (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Smith will get a routine day off here, but he should be back in the lineup next game. He won't be able to add to his league leading 44 steals, assuming he doesn't come off the bench. Dylan Moore will play center field and bat eighth versus righty Dario Agrazal. Moore has three hits in his last 19 at-bats. He's not a reliable option with the bat right now.
