Brewers' Justin Smoak: Blasts second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Thursday's loss to Chicago.

Smoak broke up Yu Darvish's no-hit bid with a solo homer to right field in the seventh inning, then knocked in Milwaukee's other run with a run-scoring double in the ninth. The long ball was his first since July 25 and second overall on the season. Smoak has been showing signs of emerging from his recent slump, notching three multi-hit performances in his last four games and going 7-for-17 in that stretch.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

The return of Ryan Braun (finger) from the injured list will likely have an effect on Smoak's playing time, though in this case, it will be Jedd Gyorko starting at first base, with Braun serving as the designated hitter. Smoak's .483 OPS through 52 plate appearances hardly makes a great case for him having an everyday role.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: First multi-RBI game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 3-for-5 with a double, a run and two RBI in Sunday's victory over the Reds.

Smoak picked up just one total hit over the last seven games he appeared in, but he notched a season-high three base knocks Sunday and recorded multiple RBI in a game for the first time as a Brewer. The switch-hitting Smoak owns a .614 OPS in 36 PA against right-handers to date, but just a .258 OPS over 12 PA against southpaws.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup Saturday against Cincinnati.

Smoak sits for just the second time in the Brewers' first 12 games, though his .128/.186/.231 slash line could send him to the bench more often going forward. Logan Morrison takes over at first base in his absence.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Smoak began the season on a high note but has gone just 1-for-15 with two runs, one walk and seven strikeouts over the past four games. Ryon Healy will start at first base and lead off in Smoak's absence.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: Goes deep Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-5 with a solo home run during Saturday's 8-3 win over the Cubs.

The 33-year-old struggled (0-for-3 with two strikeouts) like most of the Brewers' lineup in the season opener against Kyle Hendricks, but he collected two hits Saturday, including a towering homer to right field during the fifth inning. Smoak is poised to see significant time at first base for the Brewers this season, and he's hit out of the cleanup spot in the first two games.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: Reaches three times Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak singled, walked twice, and scored two runs over three at-bats in Sunday's spring game.

Smoak has not yet tallied an extra-base hit, but he has reached base five times over 12 plate appearances in his first spring with his new club. Smoak is coming off a down season, but he is on track to see plenty of action at first base for the Brewers. Exactly how the starts are divided between him and Ryan Braun, though, remains to be seen.

Brewers' Justin Smoak: Signs with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Brewers on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Smoak had a decrease in production last season, as he hit just .208/.342/.406 with 22 home runs and 61 RBI, good for only a 101 wRC+. Despite his downturn in 2019, the 33-year-old has been reliable offensively in the past. If he can regain production, he could take over as the Brewers' primary first baseman next season even with Ryan Braun and newly acquired Ryon Healy available as other options.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Smoak will leave Blue Jays' fans with positive memories in what may wind up as his final game in Toronto. He'll be a free agent this season and may find it tough to secure a major-league contract, as he'll be coming off a year in which he hit just .208/.342/.406, not a good enough line for a first baseman. Smoak will turn 33 in December and likely doesn't fit into the rebuilding Blue Jays' future plans.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak will sit again Friday against the Rays.

Smoak finds himself on the bench for the fourth straight game. He hasn't appeared in any capacity in any of the last three contests. Randal Grichuk will rest his legs as the designated hitter Friday.

September 25, 2019 04:12 PM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Stuck on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.

Smoak sits for the third straight game, with the Blue Jays seemingly looking at younger options for the final few games of the season. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will be the designated hitter Wednesday, with Rowdy Tellez starting at first base.

September 24, 2019 03:44 PM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.

Smoak finds himself on the bench for a second straight day and the third time in four games as the Blue Jays continue to rotate other players at DH. Vladimir Guerrero is starting at designated hitter Tuesday.

September 23, 2019 03:56 PM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Rides pine Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in Monday's lineup against the Orioles.

Smoak will sit for the second time in three games as the Blue Jays continue to give looks to other players down the stretch. The veteran first baseman, who is a free agent after the season, is hitting just .191 with a .453 OPS through 12 games this month. Randal Grichuk is starting at DH in place of Smoak on Monday, with Billy McKinney getting the nod in right field.

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

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

Smoak homered in Friday's win, his second homer in three games, but he will not be rewarded with another start Saturday. The 32-year-old is a free agent this winter and the Blue Jays have been giving looks to other players at Smoak's expense. He's struggled with the transition to a part-time role, batting .108/.214/.297 in 11 games so far this month.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Leaves yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk a 4-3 win over the Yankees on Friday.

Smoak's go-ahead bomb in the top of the seventh inning held up as the difference as the Blue Jays rolled to a fifth consecutive win. The 32-year-old has been handling more of a part-time role in September, and that's unlikely to change over the season's final week while the impending free agent's future with the organization remains muddled.

September 18, 2019 04:12 PM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak will sit Wednesday against the Orioles.

Smoak continues to alternate between starting and sitting, a pattern that has now gone on for 14 games. Rowdy Tellez will be the first baseman Wednesday, with Vladimir Guerrero serving as the designated hitter.

September 15, 2019 10:16 AM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Smoak's pattern of alternating between starting and sitting now stretches over 12 straight games. Brandon Drury starts at first base Sunday, with Rowdy Tellez serving as the designated hitter.

September 13, 2019 03:52 PM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is not in the lineup Friday against the Yankees.

Smoak has been reduced to starting every other game over the past 10 contests. Rowdy Tellez starts at first base Friday, with Bo Bichette getting a partial rest as the designated hitter. Richard Urena takes Bichette's typical spot at shortstop.

September 11, 2019 03:56 PM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak will be on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

The Blue Jays appear to be preferring younger options down the stretch, as Smoak sits for the fourth time in the last seven games. Brandon Drury will play first base Wednesday, with Rowdy Tellez serving as the designated hitter.

September 10, 2019 01:16 AM
Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Sitting again Sunday
