Mets' Dominic Smith: Back in big leagues
Smith was recalled by the Mets on Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Smith has hit a respectable .266/.347/.438 in 15 games since being demoted to Triple-A Syracuse at the end of May, though his return may be less about his own numbers and more about the fact that teams are limited to 13 pitchers for the rest of the season. The Mets needed to call up an extra bat, and Smith is their best option, but if he's to carve out a meaningful role the rest of the way he'll have to hit far better than the .235/.301/.346 line he's managed since the start of last season....

Mets' Dominic Smith: Optioned to Triple-A
Smith was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.
Smith has struggled mightily in a part-time role this season, hitting .186/.287/.256. Add in his numbers from a disappointing 2021 campaign and he now owns an 83 wRC+ over the last two seasons, a far cry from the 150 wRC+ he managed from 2019 to 2020 and nowhere close to a good enough mark for a defensively limited player like Smith. He'll try to get back on track with regular playing time in the minors, freeing up more at-bats for J.D. Davis, Luis Guillorme and Nick Plummer.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Riding pine against lefty
Smith isn't starting Friday against the Phillies.
Smith has served in the strong side of a platoon this season, and he'll get a breather with left-hander Bailey Falter on the mound Friday. J.D. Davis will serve as the designated hitter and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Plates two runs
Smith went 2-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a run in Tuesday's 13-12 loss to the Giants.
Smith nearly played hero for the Mets, as his leadoff triple in the top of the ninth put pinch runner Travis Jankowski in position to score the go-ahead run. However, the Giants rallied for two runs in the bottom of the ninth to steal the game from the Mets, who missed out on becoming the National League's first team to reach the 30-win mark. The Mets will look to exact revenge in Wednesday's series finale, and the lefty-hitting Smith should be included in the lineup with the Giants bringing a right-hander (Jakob Junis) to the hill....

Mets' Dominic Smith: Not in Monday's lineup
Smith will sit Monday against the Giants.
Smith has struggled at the plate throughout the year, hitting .189/.274/.243 with zero homers. He'll sit for the third consecutive game, though this one is perhaps more significant as it's the first of that stretch to come against a righty (Alex Cobb). J.D. Davis remains the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Sitting against southpaw
Smith is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.
Southpaw Austin Gomber is on the hill for the Rockies in the series finale, so the lefty-hitting Smith will head to the bench. J.D. Davis will serve as the Mets' designated hitter while Smith sits after going 0-for-5 with a run scored between both ends of Saturday's doubleheader.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Sitting night game
Smith is not starting Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Rockies.

Mets' Dominic Smith: On bench Game 2
Smith is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Smith went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run during the Game 1 victory, and he'll take a seat for the nightcap with lefty Steven Matz on the mound for St. Louis. J.D. Davis will bat seventh as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Sits against southpaw
Smith isn't starting Friday against the Mariners, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Smith has gone 0-for-13 with four strikeouts over his last six games, and he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight matchup with left-hander Marco Gonzales on the mound for the Mariners. J.D. Davis will serve as the designated hitter and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Sits against righty
Smith is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The lefty-hitting Smith will give way to the righty-hitting J.D. Davis at designated hitter, even though the Nationals are bringing a right-hander (Joan Adon) to the hill. Though Smith should have the overall edge on playing time over Davis, the two don't look like they'll be deployed in a strict platoon.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Out against lefty
Smith is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.
The lefty-hitting Smith will cede designated-hitter duties to the righty-hitting J.D. Davis, who receives the starting nod with southpaw Patrick Corbin on the hill for Washington.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Sits for second game of twin bill
Smith is out of the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Phillies.
The Phillies are bringing a southpaw (Cristopher Sanchez) to the hill for the second game of the twin bill, so the lefty-hitting Smith will cede his spot to the righty-hitting J.D. Davis as the Mets play matchups. Smith started at first base in the Mets' 3-2 loss in Game 2, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Gets breather Wednesday
Smith isn't in the lineup Wednesday against Atlanta.
Smith started in the second game of Tuesday's twin bill and went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two strikeouts. Even with a right-hander (Ian Anderson) on the mound for Atlanta, the lefty-hitting Smith will give way at designated hitter to J.D. Davis, who may be the Mets' preferred option for the role at this stage following the recent removal of Robinson Cano from the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: On bench for afternoon game
Smith will sit for the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against Atlanta.
Smith survived the roster cutdown Monday, as he remained on the active roster while Robinson Cano was designated for assignment. While that should give him a safer path to regular starts, he won't start every game, especially not both halves of a doubleheader. Francisco Lindor will rest his legs as the designated hitter in this game, but Smith should return to the lineup for the nightcap.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Sits against southpaw
Smith isn't starting Monday against Atlanta.
The 26-year-old has started exclusively against right-handed pitchers this year, and he'll get a breather Monday since southpaw Max Fried is starting for Atlanta. Smith went 4-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run in Sunday's win over Philadelphia and should see slightly more consistent playing time after Robinson Cano was designated for assignment Monday. However, Eduardo Escobar will serve as the designated hitter while J.D. Davis starts at third base in the series opener against Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dominic Smith: Saves roster spot Sunday
Smith went 4-for-4 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Phillies.
There had been some question whether Smith would be optioned down to Triple-A Syracuse ahead of Monday's roster cutdown to 26 players, but the 26-year-old took the decision out of the Mets' hands with a huge performance. Instead, the club designated Robinson Cano for assignment, removing one obstacle between Smith and more consistent playing time. Through 48 plate appearances this season, he's batting .254 with a .354 OBP and seven RBI, but he's still looking for his first home run of 2022.... See More ... See Less
