  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Not in Saturday's lineup

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Second straight two-hit effort

    Smith went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday, his second consecutive two-hit effort.

    With Wednesday's production, Smith pulled his average back up over the Mendoza Line to .209. The 25-year-old had belted his second home run of the season in Tuesday's win, a two-run shot that had staked Oakland to an early 2-0 lead in what was ultimately a 5-2 victory. Nine of Smith's 19 hits have impressively gone for extra bases thus far, so if he can continue to pick up the pace at the plate the more he acclimates to big-league arms, he could turn into a viable fantasy asset over the course of his rookie season.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Day off Friday

    Smith will sit Friday against the Angels.

    Smith sits after starting 10 straight games, a stretch in which he hit just .176/.200/.382. Sheldon Neuse will start at third base Friday.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Collects three hits in twin bill

    Smith went 3-for-7 with an RBI, a run and a stolen base across both games of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Smith started at third base and shortstop during the twin bill and now has hits in each of the past three games. The 25-year-old is handling an everyday role for Oakland but doesn't offer much production with a .219/.254/.375 slash line along with one home run, seven RBI, five runs and two stolen bases.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Handling everyday role

    Smith will start at third base and bat sixth in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Tigers.

    Smith is getting his seventh start in a row and looks to be locked in as the Athletics' everyday third baseman against both left- and right-handed pitching now that the more versatile Sheldon Neuse has moved into picking up regular at-bats at several different positions. Despite the steady playing time, Smith hasn't offered much from a fantasy perspective since slugging a grand slam in a May 3 loss to the Rays. In the five games that followed, Smith went 1-for-15 with a triple, a walk and no runs or RBI.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Belts grand slam

    Smith went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in a 10-7 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

    Smith took opposing starter Ryan Yarbrough deep to left in the first inning to give Oakland an early 5-1 lead, though that would be it for his damage at the plate. Since going hitless through his first six games, the 25-year-old has turned things around by going 10-for-27 over his last nine. The homer was Smith's first and he's now slashing .233/.267/.395 with half of his 10 hits going for extra bases.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Takes seat Monday

    Smith isn't starting Monday against the Rays.

    Smith started in the last two games and went 3-for-7 with a double, an RBI, a steal and a strikeout. Sheldon Neuse will shift to third base while Jed Lowrie serves as the designated hitter Monday.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: First stolen base Saturday

    Smith went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in a loss to the Guardians on Saturday.

    Smith made his first start since his return from the injured list due to an ankle issue and came through with one of two multi-hit efforts for the Athletics. The 25-year-old had also laced a double as a pinch hitter Friday, and he's reached safely in six of his last seven games overall dating back to April 14.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Doubles in pinch-hit at-bat

    Smith (ankle) entered Friday's loss to the Guardians in the ninth inning as a pinch hitter and doubled in his only at-bat.

    Activated from the injured list earlier in the day, Smith hit the ground running in his first official at-bat since April 18. Smith has produced a forgettable .188/.235/.281 slash line in his first 34 plate appearances, but at least half of his six hits have gone for extra bases.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Ready to go

    Smith (ankle) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.

    Smith wound up missing just the minimum 10 days with a bone bruise in his left ankle. He was featured heavily prior to his injury and will likely continue to earn regular playing time, though he'll have to hit a lot better than the .161/.212/.226 line he managed prior to his injury if he's to keep it.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Begins rehab assignment

    Smith (ankle) reported to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    Smith landed on the shelf last week with a bone bruise in his left ankle, and the start of a rehab assignment indicates it won't be a long stay on the injured list. The 25-year-old should only require a couple games in the minors and should rejoin the A's this weekend.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Making good progress

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said that Smith (ankle) took part in full baseball activities Sunday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Smith, who is recovering from a bone bruise in his left ankle, was able to take batting practice in the cage and field grounders at third base as part of an extended workout. Kotsay said after the workout that Smith could soon head out on a brief minor-league rehab assignment before potentially returning from the 10-day injured list at some point next weekend.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Placed on IL

    The Athletics placed Smith on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a bone bruise in his left ankle, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Smith was spotted with his left ankle in a walking boot Tuesday, so his move to the IL a day later doesn't come as a major surprise. The rookie infielder has gotten off to a rough start to 2022, slashing .161/.212/.226 with a 30.3 percent strikeout rate across 33 plate appearances. Smith's absence for at least the next week and a half should give Sheldon Neuse more job security as the Athletics' primary third baseman.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Dealing with injury

    Smith is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles and is wearing a protective walking boot, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The 25-year-old apparently suffered the injury during Monday's contest on a feet-first slide, though he never actually exited the contest. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, and Smith should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Not starting Tuesday

    Smith is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

    Smith started the past six games and will receive a day off after going 5-for-19 with two doubles, two walks, an RBI and three runs during that stretch. Sheldon Neuse will start at the hot corner Tuesday with righty Chris Ellis on the mound for Baltimore.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Pair of hits in start

    Smith went 2-for-3 with a double in a loss to the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Smith drew the start at third base and made good use of it, mustering the Athletics' only multi-hit effort of the night. The 25-year-old went 0-for-16 over his first five appearances of the season, but he's bounced back to go 3-for-6 with Friday's two-bagger, a walk and two runs over his last two games and has now drawn three straight starts.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Loses grip on 3B job

    Smith is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    For the second straight day, Smith will take a seat with the Rays bringing a right-handed starting pitcher (Tommy Romero) to the hill. At least for the time being, the 25-year-old rookie may have been surpassed on the depth chart at third base by Sheldon Neuse, who started in Monday's 13-2 win and went 3-for-5 with a grand slam. Prior to Monday, Smith had started in each of Oakland's first three games and went 0-for-11 with six strikeouts.

  • Athletics' Kevin Smith: Sitting Monday

    Smith is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Smith started each of Oakland's first three games at third base, going hitless with six strikeouts across 11 at-bats. Manager Mark Kotsay will give Sheldon Neuse a look at the position Monday, and if Neuse finds some success, Smith could end up moving into more of a timeshare at the hot corner.
