Top Dwight Smith News

  • White Sox's Dwight Smith: Lands with White Sox

    Smith signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox earlier this month, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

    The 29-year-old is expected to open the 2022 campaign at Triple-A Charlotte while serving as organizational outfield depth. While in the Reds system in 2021, Smith spent the entire season at Triple-A, but he saw big-league action with either the Blue Jays and Orioles in each of the prior four years. Over 568 career plate appearances, Smith has produced a .248/.310/.416 slash line (90 wRC+) with 17 home runs, seven stolen bases, 68 RBI and 66 runs.

  • Reds' Dwight Smith: Moves to minors camp

    Smith was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.

    Smith was in camp competing for the fifth outfielder spot but evidently didn't do much to impress the Reds, as he's out of that competition nearly three weeks before Opening Day. Smith has hit just .238/.298/.405 over the last two seasons while playing sub-par defense in left field.

  • Reds' Dwight Smith: Headed to Cincinnati

    Smith signed a contract with the Reds on Monday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Smith spent the last two seasons with Baltimore, though he struggled at the dish. In just 21 contests in 2020, he hit .222 with two home runs, six RBI and a stolen base.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Sent outright to satellite camp

    Smith was sent outright to Baltimore's alternate camp site Thursday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    Smith will remain with Baltimore after passing through waivers unclaimed. Prior to being designated for assignment, the outfielder hit .222/.306/.365 with two home runs and six RBI across 72 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Designated for assignment

    Smith was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Saturday when Mason Williams was called up.

    Smith originally appeared to have the everyday left field position locked down but was recently benched in three of the team's last seven games. The promotion of top prospect Ryan Mountcastle definitely played a part in Smith's demotion, as he was given the start in left field Saturday for his major-league debut. Smith was struggling at the plate, hitting a meager .222/.306/.365 with two home runs and six RBI across 72 plate appearances. There is still no telling what the Orioles plan to do with the 27-year-old outfielder but an official decision will come within the next week.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Not in Friday's lineup

    Smith will not start Friday's game against Boston, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    The arrival of Ryan Mountcastle should impact the playing time of several Orioles at the corner infield and outfield positions. Mountcastle will be the left fielder Friday, pushing Smith to the bench, though whether or not that will be the plan in the majority of games going forward remains to be seen.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Not starting Monday

    Smith is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Smith sits for the second time in three days with the Orioles facing another lefty, Hyun-Jin Ryu. Pat Valaika will get the start in left field.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: On bench Saturday

    Smith isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Back-to-back two-hit games

    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 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.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Settling into everyday role

    Smith will start in left field and bat fifth Sunday against the Nationals, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Following DJ Stewart's demotion to the 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.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Belts first long ball of season

    Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Cleared for Opening Day

    The Orioles activated Smith (not injury related) from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.

    Smith was a late arrival at summer camp following a positive COVID-19 test, but he has since returned to full health and was cleared to rejoin the team for workouts July 17. 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: Faces live pitching

    Smith (illness) faced lived pitching Tuesday, Joe Trezza of reports.

    Smith tested positive for COVID-19 during intake testing, so he wasn't able to report to camp until Friday. He remains on the COVID-19 injured list but is eligible to return at any time, so he hasn't been ruled out for Opening Day.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Heads to COVID-19 IL

    The Orioles placed 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, 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.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Lands on injured list

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Smith (undisclosed) will be placed on the injured list due to his late arrival to camp, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Smith missed the first several weeks of camp for an undisclosed reason but reported Friday. 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. Hyde stated that Smith could be removed from the list at any time, so it's still possible that he could be on the Opening Day roster if the team feels that he's ready.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Back at camp

    Smith (undisclosed) reported to Orioles summer camp Friday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    The 27-year-old has been absent from the first couple weeks of camp for undisclosed reasons, but he's now joined his teammates at workouts. The team apparently plans to build Smith up slowly, so it seems unlikely he'll be ready for games by Opening Day.

  • Orioles' Dwight Smith: Not available at camp

    Smith had yet to report to the Orioles' facility for summer camp as of Monday due to an unspecified issue, Joe Trezza of 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.
