Smith went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a stolen base in a loss to the Rockies on Friday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith experienced some rather rare success with the bat, opening the scoring on the night with his second-inning single that plated Dee Gordon. The speedster also swiped his second bag of the campaign in what was his first multi-hit effort of 2020. Smith is 3-for-7 over the last two games, but his season line still sits at an unsightly .147/.194/.206.

He's gone just 1-for-17 at the plate this season after missing the early part of summer camp for undisclosed reasons. Dylan Moore will start in right field in his absence.

Smith went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts but stole his first base of the season in the Mariners' 10-2 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
It was an ugly night at the plate, but after reaching on a fielding error in the fifth inning, Smith was at least able to chip in his first steal of the campaign. Smith is 1-for-15 to start the 2020 season. He could be at risk of losing out on playing time to Tim Lopes if he doesn't pick it up soon.

Smith isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Astros.
EDGE Analysis
Smith went 1-for-11 with a double and two RBI over the first three games this season, but he'll get a day off for the final game of the series. Kyle Lewis will shift to center field with Dee Gordon getting the start in left field.

Smith, who just arrived in summer camp Monday, played all nine innings in Saturday's intrasquad game and went 3-for-5 in the contest, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
EDGE Analysis
The fact the speedy outfielder was able to play a full nine in his first taste of game action in months was a welcome sight for manager Scott Servais and Smith himself, who expressed how grateful he was to be back out on the field. Smith also notably wore a mask throughout the entirety of the contest and even for postgame interviews, remarking "you probably won't catch me without it" to reporters. Given his level of participation Saturday, Smith appears to be on track to starting the season as the everyday center fielder as originally projected, something Servais confirmed prior to the game as well.

Smith is expected to be ready to play by Opening Day, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Smith was unable to report to camp until Monday for undisclosed reasons, giving him less than two weeks of practice time before the season begins on July 24 against the Astros. The Mariners are seemingly unconcerned about his readiness for the upcoming season, which should give Smith enough at-bats to have the chance to lead the league in steals for the second straight season.

Smith (undisclosed) was present for the Mariners' workouts Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
EDGE Analysis
Smith wasn't in camp for the first several days for an undisclosed reason, but he arrived at camp and cleared intake testing as he was able to play catch Monday. No reason was given for Smith's absence, but it's unclear whether he'll be ready to suit up for the Mariners when the team opens the season July 24. The 27-year-old should serve as the team's starting center fielder when he's ready to take the field.
