Smith (groin) is starting at first base and hitting sixth Tuesday against the Dodgers. Smith picked up a groin injury over the weekend, but he was able to make a pinch-hit appearance in Sunday's series finale against the Phillies, doubling and eventually coming around to score. He's been cleared to rejoin the starting nine following Monday's off day, with Jay Bruce getting a breather as a result of Smith's inclusion in the lineup.
Smith (groin) appeared as a pinch hitter in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Phillies, doubling in his lone plate appearance before coming around to score a run. The fact that the Mets allowed Smith to run himself for himself after legging out the double suggests the groin injury he sustained a night earlier isn't a major concern. With an off day Monday due to the Mets' game against the Marlins postponed, Smith will get some additional time to recover before potentially rejoining the lineup Tuesday.
Smith exited Saturday's game against the Phillies with a tight left groin, Wayne Randazzo of 710 WOR reports. Smith was 0-for-2 with a walk before he was replaced prior to the sixth inning. He figures to be further evaluated Sunday, but consider him day-to-day in the meantime.
