Mariners' Mallex Smith: Impresses defensively in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith made a strong impression on guest outfield instructor Mike Cameron this spring, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Cameron notes Smith was one of his best students in spring camp, which also featured guest appearances from past franchise luminaries such as Ken Griffey, Jr, Franklin Gutierrez and Ichiro Suzuki. The speedy outfielder demonstrated "tremendous" improvement in defensive drills, which consisted of fielding live balls off the bat of Suzuki. Smith sported fielding percentages of .984 or better at all three outfield spots in 2019, but Cameron's assessment implies the 26-year-old could be even sharper this coming season. "He's starting to put things together, showed a lot of improvement and Chris Prieto (former outfield coach) contributed a lot to that as did the fact that Mallex works so hard," Cameron said.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Roster spot considered secure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith's spot on the Opening Day roster was considered secure when spring training was suspended, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The speedy outfielder's Cactus League performance didn't inspire confidence, as he hit .185 (5-for-27) with a double, an RBI, a stolen base and one run across 10 exhibitions. Smith also whiffed on eight occasions, a rather disappointing development considering the 26-year-old came into camp trying to improve on the career-high 24.9 percent strikeout rate he generated in 2019. The lack of spring training numbers notwithstanding, Smith's strong work at the plate over his two seasons in Tampa (2017-18) and elite speed on the basepaths are apparently enough to keep him entrenched as the starting center fielder heading into the campaign.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Bat coming around
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is hitting .308 (4-for-13) with a double, an RBI and a run over his first five spring games.

Smith opened Cactus League action by going 0-for-5 over his first pair of games, but the speedy outfielder has been swinging a hot bat since. The 26-year-old is expected to head into the 2020 campaign as the starting center fielder, although he'll have to significantly improve on the career-worst .227/.300/.335 line he generated in 2019 to keep a hold of the job over the long term.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Gets over $2 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith and the Mariners avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $2.35 million deal, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Smith helped out fantasy owners by stealing 46 bases last season, but he didn't do much other than that. In 134 games, he hit .227/.300/.335 with just six homers.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will sit Friday against Oakland.

Smith is slumping to the finish line, going 4-for-50 at the plate over his last 16 games. Dylan Moore starts in center field Friday.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Rides pine Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners will go with an outfield consisting of Shed Long, Kyle Lewis and Tim Lopes in Wednesday's series finale. While Smith is hitting just .190 over his past 25 games, he's compiled a .299 OBP and 11 steals during that stretch.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

Smith stole his 45th base of the season in Saturday's game, but he also went 0-for-6, so manager Scott Servais decided to hold him out Sunday and get a right-handed hitter -- Ben Bishop -- in the lineup against Orioles southpaw John Means.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Riding pine Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

Smith sat Wednesday against a righty and will take a seat again Friday, this time against a lefty opener in Richard Bleier (right-hander Aaron Brooks is slated to follow as the Orioles' primary pitcher). While Smith has been a plus fantasy contributor with his 44 stolen bases, he's been pretty much a replacement-level player in real life. Dylan Moore is starting again in center.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not starting Wednesday against Pittsburgh.

Smith has gone just 4-for-35 over his last 11 contests, though he does at least have five steals over that stretch. Dylan Moore will be the center fielder Wednesday.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Multi-RBI effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-4 with two run-scoring singles and a walk in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Smith made noise out of the bottom of the order, posting his first multi-RBI effort since Aug. 21. The speedy outfielder has a modest but welcome three-game hitting streak, a proverbial oasis in the desert during a month of September when Smith is hitting just .162 (6-for-37) and only has Sunday's pair of RBI on his ledger.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Swipes pair of bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-3 with a pair of stolen bases and a run scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the White Sox.

Smith did what he does best, recording his steals after he singled in the second and reached on a fielder's choice in the fourth. Smith also came around to score on Shed Long's two-run single in the fourth. The outfielder is up to 43 steals in 51 tries this season, continuing to lead the majors in that category. However, the single was his first hit in eight games, snapping an 0-for-22 skid.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not in the lineup Thursday against the Reds, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Smith is just 2-for-27 (.074) with two steals and a 34.4 percent strikeout rate in eight games this month. As such, he'll head to the bench for Thursday's series finale as Bradon Bishop gets a start in center field in his place.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will sit Sunday against Houston, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Smith has gone 0-for-17 with nine strikeouts over his last five games. Keon Broxton will get the start in right field in his absence.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Ties career benchmark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 0-for-4 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

The steal was Smith's 40th of the season, tying the career high he just established in 2018 with the Rays. That milestone aside, Smith is discouragingly back to struggling at the plate after a solid August that he finished with a three-game flourish. Factoring in Friday's hitless effort, the speedster is just 2-for-18 over the first five games of September and has already struck out six times during that stretch.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Sits vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not in the lineup Thursday against the Astros.

Smith has started the past six games and gone 9-for-24 (.375) with a trio of stolen bases, but he'll head to the bench for Thursday's series opener in Houston with left-hander Wade Miley starting for the Astros. Jake Fraley is starting in right field in his stead, while Braden Bishop is starting in center.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Scores three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-5 and scored three runs Sunday in the Mariners' 11-3 win over the Rangers.

Smith reached base three times on the day, as he was drilled by a pitch in addition to notching two singles. The Mariners' leadoff man has been trending upward over his last four games, pounding out nine hits while scoring six times and nabbing three steals on three attempts.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Flashes speed in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 3-for-5 with a triple, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.

The 26-year-old has been showcasing his wheels lately, reaching base seven times in the last two games and swiping two bases. Smith has regained a share of the leadoff spot -- Tim Lopes still hits atop the order for Seattle against left-handed pitching -- and while that does boost his fantasy value, he's still a one-dimensional asset. On the season, Smith is slashing .238/.308/.362 with six homers, 35 RBI, 62 runs and 38 steals.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Outstanding effort as leadoff man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Rangers on Thursday.

Smith's well-balanced effort was one befitting of his leadoff role, but it marked his first multi-hit tally since Aug. 15. Smith continues to struggle with strikeouts -- he's whiffed 25 times over 89 plate appearances in August -- but his 33 extra-base hits (19 doubles, eight triples, six home runs) and 37 stolen bases on the year have still been a benefit to fantasy managers.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not starting Wednesday against lefty James Paxton and the Yankees, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Smith has been on the bench for two of the last three games, both of which came against lefties. Prior to this week, he hadn't sat against a lefty since early June. Dylan Moore starts in right field Wednesday.

Mariners' Mallex Smith: Produces as in-game replacement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith entered Monday's loss to the Yankees in the top of the third inning as a replacement for the ejected Keon Broxton and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run.

Smith brought the Mariners to within a run with his seventh-inning blast, but that would conclude the scoring for both clubs on the night. Smith has hit safely in four of the last six contests overall, but he's still hitting a middling .219 across 80 August plate appearances.
