Red Sox's Carson Smith: Avoids arbitration, re-ups with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Red Sox on Monday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

It turns out Smith and the Red Sox will avoid arbitration after settling on a one-year deal to bring the reliever back. The 28-year-old righty missed most of the 2017 season while working his way back from Tommy John surgery, though he was able to make his season debut in September and finished the year with a 1.35 ERA and seven strikeouts across 6.2 innings of work. Smith has pitched just 9.1 innings over the past two seasons due to injuries, but if he's able to return to his pre-surgery form, he should easily work his way back into a setup role for the Red Sox in 2018.

Red Sox's Carson Smith: Throws consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith struck out both batters faced in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Orioles.

This was noteworthy as it marked the first time we've seen Smith throw on consecutive nights since his return from an elbow injury. When the Red Sox activated him, there were no expectations, but the right-hander hasn't permitted a run in five outings (4.1 innings) and thrown himself into consideration for a postseason roster spot, should the Red Sox qualify.

Red Sox's Carson Smith: Records first save of season versus Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith threw a clean 11th inning to earn his first save of the season Monday against the Orioles.

The club cycled through most of its relievers as Doug Fister lasted just two innings before the game went into extra innings, leaving Smith to close things out after they scored a pair of runs in the 11th. He has pitched four scoreless outings since being activated from the disabled list, but he shouldn't be in the mix for saves moving forward.

Red Sox's Carson Smith: Makes season debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith threw a perfect inning, striking out one in Tuesday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

Smith was Boston's 10th reliever to enter the 19-inning ordeal, making his first appearance in a major league game since May 14, 2016. The Red Sox aren't relying on him to be an important piece in the bullpen at this time, but he was acquired to be an eighth-inning setup reliever and will be given that opportunity in 2018.

Red Sox's Carson Smith: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (elbow) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

His return was delayed by a day after he was struck by a line drive in the leg in his final rehab start over the weekend. Seeing as Smith has only made three appearances for the big club since the start of 2016, the Red Sox are expected to ease him back into action in a lower-leverage role. The hope is that he'll be ready to contribute more substantially in 2018 after building his arm back up in the offseason. Kyle Martin was designated for assignment to clear room for Smith's return.
