Smoak went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's 19-4 loss to the Padres. Very little went right for the Jays in the rout, but Smoak did hit his third homer in the last four games and ninth of the season. His .219/.373/.425 slash line remains rough, but his power and patience still give him some fantasy appeal in many formats.
Smoak went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Red Sox. Smoak was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts entering the ninth inning but salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a short homer to left field in the ninth inning. He's endured some miserable stretches of late, but he's now hitting .261 with three home runs over his last seven games, offering a glimmer of hope.
Smoak went 2-for-5 with a double and a solo home run in Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the Red Sox. He took Matt Barnes deep in the eighth inning for his seventh homer of the year. Smoak has come out of his May slump with five hits in the last five games, including two doubles and two long balls, but the veteran first baseman is still only slashing .220/.376/.400 through 45 contests on the year.
Smoak went 1-for-2 with three walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's win over the White Sox. The first-inning blast off Ivan Nova was his first long ball since April 21, and Smoak was mired in a brutal 7-for-64 (.109) slump over the 20 games in between. The veteran first baseman is now slashing .218/.379/.391 on the year with six homers and 21 RBI in 40 games, and only his patience at the plate has kept his fantasy value afloat over the last few weeks.
Smoak is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants. Smoak is in the midst of a 2-for-30 (.067) stretch over his last 10 appearances, so he'll take a seat on the bench for Wednesday's series finale as he looks to hit the reset button. In his place, Rowdy Tellez is starting at first base and hitting third.
