Smith is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Shannon Drayer of 710 AM KIRO reports.
With the White Sox bringing left-handed starters to the hill for the final three contests of the four-game series, Smith has been relegated to a bench role due to his big platoon splits. In his stead, Franklin Gutierrez will enter the lineup in right field for the third time in as many days.
Anderson started and caught four passes (on nine targets) for 65 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.
Anderson was promoted to the Jets' first-team offense for Saturday's game in light of Brandon Marshall (hip), Quincy Enunwa (concussion) and Kenbrell Thompkins (groin) being injured, and impressed once again. The undrafted rookie led New York in receptions, targets and yards, while also scoring for the second straight game. Although Anderson's touchdown came during the fourth quarter, he's now totaled 10 receptions for 196 yards and two scores in the Jets' last two exhibition tilts. With great size, speed and production, Anderson seems to have everything necessary to make New York's regular season roster and push for higher pegging after another strong showing.
Cabrera was pulled out of Sunday's game after injuring his arm in a play at first base, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Cabrera was running to first base, but an errant throw forced Tommy Joseph to come off the bag and make contact with Cabrera. More information regarding the severity of Cabrera's injury should be known in the near future after his arm is further examined. Upon Cabrera's departure, Wilmer Flores was put into the game.
Parra will start at first base and bat sixth in the order Sunday against the Nationals. It marks his third start in four games at that position.
The recent arrival of top prospect David Dahl had resulted in Parra getting phased out of everyday duties in the outfield, but with regular first baseman Mark Reynolds fracturing his left hand earlier this month, Parra has found a new window for playing time. With few other experienced options on hand to play first base, Parra, a former Gold Glover in the outfield, makes for as good of a replacement option as any at a position that's far less taxing on the defensive end. It's possible that Parra was dropped in some fantasy leagues after Dahl was promoted to the big leagues, but with Reynolds at risk of missing the remainder of the season, Parra makes for a worthy pickup now that everyday at-bats could be in store once again.
