Angels' Kevan Smith: Claimed by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday.

Smith will provide additional depth at the catching position for an Angels that currently has two other backstops on the 40-man roster (Francisco Arica and Jose Briceno) after designating Joe Hudson for assignment in a corresponding move. Across 52 games this past season, Smith hit .292/.348/.380 with three home runs and 21 RBI after missing the first couple months due to a Grade 1 ankle sprain he suffered in spring training. The 30-year-old is expected to undergo surgery on the ankle this offseason, though he should be ready to go for spring training.

White Sox's Kevan Smith: Set for offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will undergo offseason ankle surgery.

Specifics regarding the procedure remain unknown at this point. Smith missed time with an ankle injury earlier in the season, though it's unclear if his current injury is related. The backstop owns a .288/.343/.362 slash line with two homers and 19 RBI through 48 games this season.

White Sox's Kevan Smith: Plates three vs. Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-2 with a double, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's 10-4 win over Chicago.

Smith launched his second home run of the season in the second inning to spot the White Sox a 3-1 lead. The 30-year-old backstop has gone 7-for-20 with three extra-base hits and five RBI across nine games in September. He'll continue to share the catching duties with Omar Narvaez and Welington Castillo as the regular season winds down.

White Sox's Kevan Smith: Gets fourth start in five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will start at catcher and bat sixth Sunday against the red Sox.

Smith has seemingly leapfrogged Omar Narvaez on the catching depth chart of late, as the former will make his fourth start in five games Sunday. The backstop has helped his case for regular at-bats by hitting .281 since being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in early June, albeit with minimal pop. Even if Smith remains ahead of Narvaez in the pecking order, his status as the No. 1 catcher could be in peril, however, with the White Sox reinstating Welington Castillo (shoulder) -- who inked a two-year, $15 million deal last winter -- back from the disabled list this weekend.

White Sox's Kevan Smith: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

Smith's two-run shot in the second inning extended the White Sox lead to 3-0 as the team cruised to a second straight win. It was Smith's first homer in 34 games this season after launching four in 87 contests last year. He'll continue to back up Omar Narvaez behind the dish down the stretch.
