Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Works on strengthening legs in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak said Monday that he spent the winter working on strengthening his hips, glutes and quadriceps to take pressure off his knees after he battled tendinitis during the 2018 season, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Though the rigors of playing in a team-high 158 games last season may have caught up with Smoak in September, when he was held to a .638 OPS, the 2017 campaign still went down as a huge breakout for the first baseman. The 31-year-old credited a change in approach at the plate for a steep reduction in his strikeout rate from 32.8 percent in 2016 to 20.1 percent last season, which allowed him to tap into his considerable power more regularly. Even with home-run production on the rise leaguewide, Smoak's 38 taters still made him a major asset in the category, while his improved contact made him less of a sinkhole in batting average than in previous years. Smoak will face plenty of pressure to prove he can repeat last season's performance in 2018, but even a slight downturn in his production would likely pay dividends for fantasy owners who invest in him on draft day.

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

Smoak is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The breakout star has cooled this month and will get a breather in the matinee game. Kendrys Morales is released from his designated hitter spot and will don a glove at first base in his place. Smoak sports a .272/.358/.534 line with 38 home runs, 90 RBI and 85 runs scored for 2017.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Breaks through recent slump with two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in Tuesday's victory over the Orioles.

The first baseman's third-inning RBI came on his 24th double of the year, matching his career high set as a Mariner in 2011. Smoak's 86 RBI this season rank second among AL first baseman, as does his .913 OPS. Tuesday's effort might be just what the 30-year-old needed to get back on track after a few down weeks.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Out of Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak is out of the lineup Monday against the Orioles, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Smoak, who's hitting .278/.358/.550 for the year, is in the midst of a rough stretch at the plate. Over the last 14 games he's gone just 7-for-44 (.159) and posted an underwhelming .288 OBP. He'll get the night off while Kendrys Morales fills in at first base.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Returns to starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smoak (calf) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Smoak was held out of the starting nine Tuesday due to lingering calf soreness, but he ended up logging five plate appearances off the bench in the 19-inning marathon. The 30-year-old is in the midst of a career year -- he has a great shot at 40 homers, and if he gets there, he will have doubled his previous career high.
