Smith went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, a walk and a run in a loss to the Rays on Saturday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith was a thorn in the side of his old club throughout the contest, with the speedy outfielder responsible for all of Seattle's extra-base hits other than Omar Narvaez's home run. The 26-year-old had a rough 0-for-4, three-strikeout outing Friday. However, he's otherwise gone 4-for-7 with a pair of two-baggers, Saturday's triple, a walk and two runs in two other games since putting in some extra time studying video of his mechanics with the team's hitting coaches.

Smith went 2-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Padres on Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith came home with what turned out to be the winning run in the eighth inning on a fielder's choice groundout by Daniel Vogelbach. The speedy outfielder was on base courtesy of his 16th double of the season, his first extra-base hit since July 21. The success at the plate wasn't coincidental by any stretch, as Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports Smith had stayed to work with hitting coaches Tim Laker and Jarrett DeHart after Tuesday's game to study video, discuss some changes and then take extra hacks in the batting cage. Smith had been in a funk since the calendar flipped, going just 1-for-16 over his first four August games prior to Wednesday.

Smith went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a 9-0 loss to the Astros on Saturday.
EDGE Analysis
The Mariners ended up being no-hit on the evening, but Smith was still able to eke out a little production. On the season, the speedster is slashing only .232/.301/.346, but he's now stolen 30 or more bases for the second straight year.

Smith went 1-for-6 with two stolen bases and a run in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith shifted over to right field and snapped a nine-game steal-less streak with his pair of swipes in Tuesday's win. The speedy outfielder also reached safely for the ninth straight game, but strikeouts continue to be an issue. With another two punchouts against the Rangers, Smith has now whiffed on multiple occasions in five of the last six games and carries a career-high 25.3 strikeout rate overall on the season.

Smith went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Tigers on Friday. He was also caught stealing for the seventh time this season.
EDGE Analysis
With two out and the score knotted at 2-2 in the bottom of the ninth, Smith came through by lacing a four-seam fastball from Jose Cisnero to center that brought home Kyle Seager with the winning run. It was only Smith's fourth RBI of July, but the speedy outfielder did manage to extend his on-base streak to six games with what was his fourth multi-hit effort of the month.

Smith (thumb) will lead off and play center field Saturday against the Angels, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Smith left Friday's game with a sore right thumb, but the issue evidently wasn't particularly severe, as he won't have to miss any games. He owns an .810 OPS and four steals in six games since the All-Star break.

Smith was removed from Friday's 10-0 win over the Angels after five innings with a sore right thumb, the Associated Press reports.
EDGE Analysis
Smith reached base twice in his three plate appearances, recording a base hit to go with a walk, a run and his 27th stolen base of the season. According to the report, Smith hurt his thumb early in the contest, but continued to play through the issue before departing. The Mariners held an 8-0 lead at the time of Smith's removal, which offers hope that his early exit may have only been precautionary more than anything else.
