Justin Smoak goes hitless vs. A's Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mariners first baseman Justin Smoak went 0 for 4 and struck out twice in his team's 6-4 win over the A's Friday.

Smoak began the season on fire, going 6 for 13 with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI in his team's first three games. It's been downhill from there, as the first baseman has just three hits in 21 at-bats over his last six games, dropping his season line to .265/.359/.529 in 34 total at-bats.

Settle down on Justin Smoak
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

I believe it was last year when some user commented somewhere on the website that CBS stands for Constantly Backing Smoak. At least for right now, I refuse to be part of the problem.

Once upon a time, Justin Smoak was a top prospect getting traded for Cliff Lee, and at age 27, he's not beyond fulfilling that potential. He's really not. I willfully acknowledge it, just like I did last year and the year before and the year before and ... well, you get the idea.

What makes this year so different from those others? Just the fact that he homered and doubled twice in his first two games? Guess what? He had a two-game stretch when he homered and doubled twice last year as well, not to mention four three-game stretches when he homered twice and doubled once. Where did those get him? 

For playing in the heavy-hitting Cactus League, he didn't have an especially strong spring. His .292 batting average and .891 OPS were nothing compared to his .407 batting average and 1.252 OPS there last year. And other than Robinson Cano "having a positive influence on him," I haven't heard of any external changes that might cause me to expect a different result -- you know, something like Domonic Brown changing his stance last spring.

Again, I'm not ruling out a breakout season for Smoak because I don't rule out much of anything this time of year, but if I really needed help at first base -- and I probably don't -- I'd look to someone like Adam LaRoche first. He has a much clearer case for improvement coming off an injury-plagued season and hit a long home run Monday.

Justin Smoak continues raking in Tuesday triumph
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Justin Smoak is smoking. The Mariners first baseman, who is coming off a fine spring as he continues to turn potential into production, slugged two more hits Tuesday night to maintain his .500 batting average to start the regular season.

He slammed a three-run double in the third inning to give his team the lead to stay in a second straight defeat of the Angels. He had already singled in the second.

Smoak has three extra-base hits in eight at-bats and leads the American League in RBI with six.

Justin Smoak follows up strong spring with HR in opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners first baseman Justin Smoak belted a three-run homer in the ninth inning during Monday's season opener against the Angels, helping Seattle to a 10-3 win. Smoak also had his first double in the game, while finishing 2 for 4 with one walk and three runs.

Smoak didn't get his first home run last season until his 23rd game. Monday's performance followed up a strong spring from Smoak, who hit .292 with a .523 slugging percentage, .891 OPS, three home runs, six doubles and 10 RBI in 23 spring games.

Justin Smoak locks up starting role at first base
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mariners first baseman Justin Smoak has locked up the starting job at the position, MLB.com reports.

"I said this winter that Smoak is my first baseman," manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday. "Will other guys play first? Yeah. But Smoak is my first baseman."

Smoak entered play Monday 6 for 19 at the plate with one home run, three RBI and five walks, giving him a .318/.458/.579 line through eight Cactus League games.
