  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to Triple-A

    Smith was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    Smith will head to Triple-A after struggling to find consistent opportunities with the major-league roster, batting .275 with two homers, seven RBI and five runs scored over 40 total at-bats since the beginning of May. The 27-year-old will now likely get extended run with Reno and he'll almost assuredly get another shot with the Diamondbacks down the road this season. In the meantime, Christian Walker will continue to handle the lion's share of work at first base.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Homers in loss

    Smith started at first base and went 3-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 9-3 loss to San Francisco.

    Smith gave Christian Walker a break in the field and homered for a second straight game -- he walked off the Giants in the series opener. He's been successful in a part-time role and is batting .294 with an .896 OPS over 55 plate appearances. He should remain rostered by Arizona until Alek Thomas (hamstring) is ready, which could be by the end of next week. Thomas is slated to begin a rehab assignment soon, and manager Torey Lovullo told Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic that the rehab stint could be a quick one.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Walks off Giants

    Smith hit a pinch-hit, two-run home run in Monday's 4-2 win over the Giants.

    Smith pinch hit for Eugenio Suarez and sent a center-cut fastball over the fence in center field for a walk-off home run. It was his second homer of the season and the first walk-off blast of his career. Smith has been relegated to the bench and pinch-hit duties mostly, but he has a knack for high-leverage moments. Per Baseball Reference's leverage indicator, the outfielder/DH owns an .871 OPS in high-leverage spots during his career.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes rare start

    Smith started in right field and went 1-for-2 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Texas.

    The start was Smith's first appearance of any kind since May 19 and 11th since being called up from Triple-A Reno on April 19. The lefty-batter doubled in the Diamondbacks' first run before being pinch hit for when a lefty entered the contest. Smith has a .244/.273/.415 line over 44 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Hits grand slam in six-RBI day

    Smith went 2-for-5 with a grand slam, a double, two additional RBI and an additional run scored during Tuesday's 14-1 win over St. Louis.

    After opening the season in Triple-A, Smith failed to log a hit in his first three games with the D-Backs. He made up for the slow start Tuesday, tagging reliever Zack Thompson for a two-run double in the fifth and a grand slam in the sixth. Smith's six runs batted in marked a career high, topping his previous best of four RBI.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Starts at first base

    Smith started at first base and went 0-for-2 in Sunday's 5-3 win over San Francisco.

    Smith started in place of a resting Christian Walker, who eventually entered the game as a pinch hitter and finished up at first. Smith has appeared in all three games since being called up from Triple-A Reno on Friday, going 0-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Recalled from Reno

    The Diamondbacks recalled Smith from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Smith has been at Triple-A since the beginning of the season and has slashed .298/.417/.456 with 14 RBI across 72 plate appearances. It's unlikely he sees consistent playing time while in the majors. Jace Peterson was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes season debut

    Smith entered Friday's game as a pinch hitter and finished the game in right field. He went 0-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored in a 17-1 win over San Francisco.

    The Diamondbacks recalled Smith from Triple-A Reno on Friday after designating Jace Peterson for assignment. Smith, a first-round pick in 2017, spent parts of the previous four seasons in the majors. During that time, prospects Corbin Carroll and Alek Thomas relegated him to part-time work. Smith will serve as a left-handed bat off the bench while providing occasional breaks for the team's regular outfielders.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to minors

    The Diamondbacks optioned Smith to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Smith didn't hit much this spring and had minor-league options remaining, so he finds himself on the outside looking in for an Opening Day roster spot. The 28-year-old should play regularly at Reno between first base and the outfield.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Filling in at first base

    Smith started at first base and went 0-for-2 with a walk in Sunday's spring game against the Brewers.

    Smith started at first for the second time in the last three games, as the Diamondbacks get by without Christian Walker (hand), who could return Tuesday. Smith, who played partial seasons at the major-league level in 2022 and 2023, could be in for a similar role in 2024. He was left off the latest projected roster assembled by Steve Gilbert of MLB.com. His most logical path to the Opening Day roster would be as a backup at first base, but Arizona may prefer a utility player, like Kevin Newman, Jace Peterson (wrist) or Emmanuel Rivera to cover there when Walker needs a breather. Smith is 3-for-13 with two RBI through five Cactus League games.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Included on wild-card roster

    Smith is on the roster for the Diamondbacks' NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Brewers.

    Smith slashed just .188/.317/.325 across 228 major-league plate appearances during the 2023 regular season, but he'll give the Diamondbacks a bit of extra left-handed thump off the bench in their best-of-three series versus Milwaukee. Arizona is carrying 14 position players and 12 pitchers for the first round of the postseason.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to Triple-A

    Smith was optioned Tuesday to Triple-A Reno, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

    Smith went 1-for-7 with three walks and two strikeouts during his 11-day stay with the Diamondbacks and is slashing just .188/.317/.325 across 228 total major-league plate appearances this year. Jake McCarthy has been recalled from Reno in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes first start since call-up

    Smith started at first base and went 0-for-2 in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Baltimore.

    Smith made his first start since the Diamondbacks recalled him for the September roster expansion. Both plate appearances came against right-hander Jack Flaherty, and Smith was removed for a pinch hitter once a lefty reliever entered. The lefty-swinging Smith could spot in against right-handers at times during the final month, but he's not part of a platoon situation where fantasy managers could count on him being in a starting lineup.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks recalled Smith from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Smith is slashing .297/.419/.457 with 32 RBI since being optioned to Triple-A at the end of June and will now rejoin the active roster as it expands from 26 to 28 players. Smith will provide Arizona with a bench bat down the stretch and is capable of playing in the outfield and at first base.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to Triple-A

    Smith was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Smith will head to Triple-A in the midst of a cold spell at the plate, having batted .130 (9-for-69) with two homers, eight RBI, eight runs scored and 16 strikeouts over 69 at-bats in June. He'll head to Reno and look to get right while Kyle Lewis was called up to replace Smith on the major-league roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Hits the skids

    Smith went 0-for-5 in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Giants.

    Smith's average dropped to .196 following the game. His last hit came June 17, and he's 3-for-29 (.107) over his last 10 games. Smith, who has managed to grind out eight walks during the slump, is batting just .169 since the beginning of May.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: On bench again

    Smith is not in Thursday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Smith started against righties for four straight games from June 15-18, but he has sat against three of the last four righties Arizona has faced, so it would seem he is falling into a bench role. Alek Thomas, whose playing time is trending up, gets the start in the outfield while Ketel Marte gets the nod at designated hitter.
