      Dwight Smith went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Phillies.Smith also doubled as part of a two-hit day in Tuesday's series opener and seems to be solidifying himself as the Baltimore Orioles' primary option in left field following DJ Stewart's demotion to the team's alternate training site a week ago. He'll be in the lineup again Thursday as the Orioles' No. 6 hitter, marking Smith's seventh consecutive start.

      Dwight Smith will start in left field and bat fifth Sunday against the Nationals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.Following DJ Stewart's demotion to the Baltimore Orioles' alternate site Wednesday, Smith has emerged as the team's clear top option in left field. Though he'll be making his fourth straight start Sunday, Smith is still sitting on a meager .281 on-base percentage on the season. As such, Smith may not have an especially long leash in a full-time role.

Though manager Brandon Hyde had some concerns that Smith wouldn't have sufficient training time ahead of Opening Day, the Orioles' decision to activate him implies they're satisfied with where he stands. Smith is expected to begin the season as a fourth outfielder, with Anthony Santander, Austin Hays and DJ Stewart likely to serve as the club's primary starters.

      Orioles' Dwight Smith: Heads to COVID-19 IL

      The Baltimore Orioles placed Dwight Smith (not injury related) on the COVID-19 injured list Monday.Per Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun, Smith revealed in a video call Saturday that his delayed arrival at summer camp was due to a positive COVID-19 test, which occurred July 1 as part of the Orioles' intake testing process at Camden Yards. Smith indicated that he was asymptomatic, but he wasn't cleared to join the Orioles for workouts for more than two weeks. Per Joe Trezza of MLB.com, manager Brandon Hyde said Smith is eligible to come off the IL at any time, so the outfielder could still break camp with the club if the Orioles are convinced that he's gotten sufficient reps in ahead of Opening Day.

The team planned to build the 27-year-old up slowly, so his placement on the injured list doesn't come as a big surprise.

      Orioles' Dwight Smith: Not available at camp

      Dwight Smith had yet to report to the Baltimore Orioles' facility for summer camp as of Monday due to an unspecified issue, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.Due to privacy reasons, manager Brandon Hyde hasn't been able to provide an explanation behind the absences of Smith and fellow outfielder Anthony Santander, both of whom have yet to train with the team. Per Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun, Hyde said over the weekend that it would be "challenging" for players not yet involved in camp to be ready for the start of the season July 24 in Boston, so even if he reports in the next few days, Smith may be excluded from the 30-man Opening Day roster. If both Smith and Santander aren't available to begin the season, Cedric Mullins and Mason Williams would be in good shape to make the roster as third and fourth outfielders.

      Orioles' Dwight Smith: Lacking in versatility

      Baltimore Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Thursday that Dwight Smith won't be a backup option in center field and is viewed primarily as a left fielder, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. "Smitty's most comfortable in left. I think there's a situation where he could play right, but he's not a center field option for me."Considering that Anthony Santander and Trey Mancini are viewed as the primary options in left and right field, respectively, it's not ideal that Smith isn't trusted to play center, which is normally a requirement for a fourth outfielder. The addition of an extra active roster spot for MLB teams in 2020 along with DJ Stewart's (ankle) ongoing recovery from offseason surgery helps Smith's case for breaking camp with the big club, but the 27-year-old may need to elevate his production at the plate to ensure he keeps a spot in Baltimore all season. He started out hot in 2019 before fading badly in the second half, wrapping up his first year in Baltimore with a .241/.297/.412 slash line (83 wRC+).
