Smith went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Cubs.
Smith took Robert Stock yard in the third inning to record his sixth home run of the season. It was his second long ball in his past three starts, and he is also in the midst of a modest three-game hitting streak. Though he's gotten off to a slow start this season, Smith now has a 97 wRC+ with 24 RBI and 19 runs scored across 223 plate appearances.
Smith went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Monday's 5-2 win over the Cubs.

Smith went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, a caught stealing and two strikeouts in a 6-2 win over the Padres on Sunday.

After launching 10 home runs in 50 games in 2020, Smith has just four through 49 games season but owns a decent .260/.332/.373 slash line. One added factor of late has been Smith's activity on the bases, with both his steals and lone caught stealing all having come in June.

He's now slashing .264/.324/.365 with three home runs, 19 RBI, 13 runs scored and a stolen base in 176 plate appearances. Smith has produced three multi-hit efforts in his last six games.

Smith carried the Mets offensively and contributed three of the team's five runs, blasting a two-run shot in the top of the fourth and adding another RBI with a sac fly in the sixth. He's hit safely in three straight games and in nine of his last 12 contests, though he's only hitting .268 with a 20.8 percent strikeout rate in that span. Smith also ended his homer drought, as the two-run shot was his first long ball since April 13.
Smith (knee) will return to the lineup to play left field for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against Colorado, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Smith hurt himself on a slide Tuesday. He was expected to be available off the bench Wednesday, but that game got postponed.

The 25-year-old never exited the contest, but he apparently suffered the injury during the sixth inning on Tomas Nido's home run, which was originally ruled a double. Smith should be considered day-to-day, and it's unclear if he'll be available to start in Thursday's doubleheader.

The 25-year-old has been one of the few constants in the Mets lineup this season, but that hasn't translated into production. Smith is hitting .280 (21-for-75) in May, but he hasn't homered since April 13 and has only two long balls and 15 RBI on the year, well below the expectations created by his strong 2020 campaign.
Smith went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored during Wednesday's 7-1 win over Baltimore.
The 25-year-old delivered an RBI single during the third inning and brought home another run with a double two frames later. Smith is 8-for-22 with three walks, five RBI and three runs in his past seven appearances.

He's now hitting .250 in 48 at-bats with two homers and six RBI this season. Smith has struck out 14 times and walked only twice, a concerning ratio for a middle-of-the-order bat on a team with postseason aspirations. That being said, his situation and performance should improve when teammates like Francisco Lindor begin producing more consistently as well.

Smith went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Phillies.
It's the first multi-hit performance of the year for the 25-year-old, who's managed only five total hits over his first six games. That was still enough to boost Smith's batting average to .286 (8-for-28) and he has produced solid power numbers with two homers and six RBI, but his 0:11 BB:K is a cause for concern.
Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a strikeout in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
An 0-for-4 showing with two more whiffs in the nightcap put a damper on his day, but Smith still connected on his second homer of the year in the first inning of the matinee.
