Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not starting Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Smoak will head to the bench Wednesday with no DH spot available in Dodger Stadium. Rowdy Tellez is starting at first base Wednesday.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

Smoak will cede first base to the recently recalled Rowdy Tellez in the series finale, and it's unclear if there will be room for both players in the lineup on an everyday basis. Per Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca, manager Charlie Montoyo said Tuesday that Tellez "will get a lot of playing time" following his promotion, which may leave Smoak and Brandon Drury to contend for the remaining spot in the starting nine in most games. Though he's largely struggled in the second half, Smoak has helped his cause by showing slightly better form at plate of late, tallying seven hits -- including a home run and two doubles -- in 26 at-bats over the past seven games.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Busts out of slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Monday's win over the Rangers.

The first baseman hadn't gone deep since July 28, hitting just .105 (4-for-38) with zero extra-base hits in 11 games during that power outage, but Smoak broke out in a big way as part of a 19-run eruption from the Jays offense. On the season, he's now slashing .211/.351/.413 with 19 homers and 52 RBI.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Starting at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is starting at DH and hitting cleanup Monday against the Rangers, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

With Freddy Galvis out of the picture -- he was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Monday -- Smoak could start to see more time at designated hitter moving forward, as Cavan Biggio and Brandon Drury will likely cover second and first base more often, respectively. The veteran slugger has failed to get things going in the second half, as he's hitting just .169 with four home runs and a .642 OPS in 25 games since the All-Star break.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees.

Smoak is 2-for-25 over his last seven games and will head to the bench Friday with lefty J.A. Happ taking the mound for the Yankees. Brandon Drury will start at first base Friday in his stead.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

While the Blue Jays' youth movement has hit full gear, Smoak still started six straight games prior to this contest. He is hitting .174/.329/.362 with four home runs and a 22:16 K:BB in 69 at-bats since the All-Star break. Brandon Drury is starting at first base, hitting eighth.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup against the Royals, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Smoak has hit just .192 over his last nine games but has enough walks and homers over that stretch to own a strong .938 OPS. He'll sit in favor of Brandon Drury on Tuesday.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rays.

Smoak is hitting .257/.381/.543 with three home runs over his last 10 games. Brandon Drury will start at first base, hitting eighth.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Comes through with clutch hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in a 2-1 victory against the Indians on Tuesday.

The veteran first baseman tied the contest with a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth, then hit a walkoff single during the 10th. Smoak is only hitting .218, but he does have 17 home runs, 44 RBI and 39 runs in 280 at-bats this season. He should reach the 25-homer mark for the third straight year.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Pops 16th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 7-3 loss to Cleveland.

The second-inning long ball was only Smoak's second in July, and his 16th of the year. The veteran first baseman continues to get on base at a solid clip, but his overall .215/.354/.418 slash line limits his fantasy appeal in most formats.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

Brandon Drury will pick up a rare start at first base while Smoak moves to the bench following six consecutive turns in the lineup. Since returning from the injured list in late June, Smoak has yet to get going at the dish, batting just .175 with five extra-base hits over his past 16 contests.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Cranks 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-3 with two walks, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Smoak played a big role in the Blue Jays' offensive output Tuesday night, highlighted by his 15th homer of the season -- a solo shot in the sixth inning. Entering the team's series against the Red Sox, Smoak had failed to collect a hit in five consecutive starts. He's gone 3-for-8 with three RBI and three runs scored in the first two games of the set. The first baseman is now hitting .216/.354/.421 across 316 plate appearances for the season.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Takes seat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is out of the lineup versus the Yankees on Saturday.

Just one game out of the All-Star break, the Blue Jays have decided to start Rowdy Tellez at first base. Since returning from the injured list at the end of June, Smoak is slashing .147/.293/.353 with just two home runs and 12 strikeouts over 34 at-bats. Although Tellez's stats at the plate aren't much better, he may see some added time at first if Smoak's hitting woes continue to linger.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Takes seat for Canada Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

With the Blue Jays facing a quick turnaround for their Canada Day game, Smoak will be extended a breather while Rowdy Tellez steps in at first base. Smoak, who returned from the injured list Friday after missing two weeks with a quadriceps strain, went a collective 3-for-12 with a pair of home runs and three RBI while starting in each of the first three games of the series.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Homers twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in a 7-6 loss to the Royals on Sunday.

In his third game back from the injured list, Smoak blasted a fastball for a solo shot in the second inning and added another in the fifth inning that left the yard with an 104 MPH exit velocity. It was the 10th multi-homer game of Smoak's career and his second of the season. The 32-year-old is hitting .227/.361/.440 with 14 home runs through 65 games this season.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak (quad) was activated from the injured list Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Smoak was able to run Wednesday without issue, and is ready to get back on the field after missing two weeks with his quad injury. He will jump right into the lineup and play first base while hitting sixth against Royals starter Danny Duffy.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Hoping to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak (quadriceps) ran the bases with no issues Wednesday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Smoak hasn't played since June 14 due to a quadriceps injury, but the Blue Jays are hoping to have him back in the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Royals. Prior to landing on the shelf, the veteran slugger hit .225/.364/.423 with 12 home runs and 34 RBI in 62 games.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left quadriceps strain, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Smoak has been on the bench for the last three contests, and it's since been revealed that he's been nursing a quad injury. Justin Shafer was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Sitting for third straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup Monday against the Angels.
