Blue Jays' Kevin Smith: On bench after six straight starts
1 min read
Smith is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.
Smith's streak of six consecutive starts comes to an end, as Breyvic Valera checks in for him at third base. The rookie Smith went 2-for-13 with a solo home run and three walks over that six-game stretch, but he may need to raise his performance in his subsequent starts to avoid moving into more of a timeshare at the position with Valera.
