Mariners' Mallex Smith: Returns to majors
Smith was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Shed Long was sent back to the minors to free up a roster spot for Smith, who is back with the big club after smoothing out some kinks at the plate in the minors. The outfielder hit .333/.375/.476 with a homer, seven stolen bases and a 3:4 BB:K in 10 games for the Rainiers. Smith could steal playing time from all-or-nothing Jay Bruce in the outfield and could quickly reclaim an everyday role if he builds off his success from the minors.
