Smith went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith has now hit safely in five straight games, and he's opened July by going 4-for-12 over the first three contests of the month. The 26-year-old is still in the process of propping up his season line after an abysmal start at the plate, but he's encouragingly boosted his average 70 points to .235 since returning from a demotion to Triple-A Tacoma.

Smith went 2-for-5 with a triple and two runs in a win over the Brewers on Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
The speedy outfielder legged out his fourth three-bagger of the season to lead off the game and quickly came home on J.P. Crawford's double. Smith's multi-hit effort was his third in the last five games, and he's now hit safely in seven straight contests overall. The month of June has been a turning point for Smith's season, as he's now raised his average 46 points to .237 since the calendar flipped with the help of an impressive 13 extra-base hits (nine doubles, Wednesday's triple and three home runs).

Smith went 3-for-3 with four runs scored, two stolen bases and two walks in Friday's 10-9 win over the Orioles.
EDGE Analysis
Smith played the lead-off role perfectly in this game, recording his 20th and 21st steals of the year. The speedy outfielder is hitting only .230/.302/.361 this year, but he's added 37 runs and three triples. He has gone 13-for-45 with two homers, five doubles, and three steals in his last 10 games.

Smith went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's victory over Oakland.
EDGE Analysis
Smith took Tanner Anderson deep in the third inning to tie the game 2-2. Improbably, it was Smith's second home run in three days and third overall in June. He has never hit more than three homers in a season, so there should be no expectation that the power outburst will continue. Smith is more known for his speed; he has stolen 18 bases this season, though Sunday he was thrown out trying to steal for only the second time this season.

Smith went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 9-2 victory over the A's.
EDGE Analysis
The speedy 26-year-old turned up the power this time, blasting his fourth home run of the season in the eighth inning off reliever Aaron Brooks. Since getting recalled on May 16 after a brief stint at Triple-A Tacoma, Smith seems to be finding his stride. Overall, he's tallied 29 runs scored, 18 RBI and 18 stolen bases while batting .224/.293/.343.

Smith went 3-for-6 with two doubles, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Twins on Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith extended his month-long hitting streak to 11 games with Wednesday's effort, which featured his second consecutive multi-hit tally. The 26-year-old outfielder has offered a bit of everything during his impressive June, as he's now accumulated five extra-base hits (four doubles, one home run), five RBI, three walks, four stolen bases and seven runs thus far this month.

Smith went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith played his leadoff role especially well Tuesday, crossing the plate on the Mariners' first two run-scoring hits of the night. While the speedster's .216/.291/.319 season line leaves plenty to be desired on all fronts, Smith now has a 10-game hitting streak that encompasses all of June and that has already served to boost his average 25 points.

Smith went 3-for-5 with a two-run single, an RBI double and two runs in a win over the Astros on Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
Five of his teammates got bigger headlines by leaving the yard, but Smith was the only Mariner to produce a three-hit effort on a memorable night for the Seattle offense. The speedy outfielder made significant contributions through some "small ball", lacing timely hits in both the fifth and eighth innings. Smith has now hit safely in all five games to open June, and he's raised his season average 46 points to .210 since May 27, a span of 10 contests.

Smith isn't in Tuesday's starting lineup against Houston, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
EDGE Analysis
Smith will head to the bench with southpaw Wade Miley set to take the mound for the visiting Astros. Braden Bishop draws the start in center field and is set to lead off in Smith's absence.

Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Mariners' 4-2 loss to the Astros on Monday.
EDGE Analysis
Smith checked in with his third long ball of the season with this third-inning solo shot off Corbin Martin, continuing his offensive resurgence since he was recalled after a brief stint at Triple-A Tacoma. His average is still below the Mendoza Line at .195, but he's been showing signs of life as he looks to push that number back up towards his career mark of .265.
