Mets' Dominic Smith: Homers in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, double and two runs scored in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Nationals.

It marked the second day in a row in which Smith belted a double and a homer. Smith has been seeing consistent playing time with Yoenis Cespedes opting out of the season, and the lefty swinger now has his OPS up to a stellar 1.020 following Thursday's win. Look for Smith to continue to get consistent at-bats against right-handed pitching.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Homer, three RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, an additional run scored and three total RBI in Wednesday's 11-6 win over the Nationals.

This was Smith's first multi-hit game of the season, though his OPS is suddenly up to .942 on the strength of seven extra-base hits (three homers) and five walks. He was not seeing a ton of time early on, but Smith has been playing nearly every day between first base and DH since Yoenis Cespedes opted out, playing time rightly earned with his performance at the plate over the past couple seasons.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is not in the lineup Monday against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Smith started against just two of the first eight lefties the Mets have faced this season, so it shouldn't be a surprise to see him on the bench in this one against Patrick Corbin. Brian Dozier will be the designated hitter in his absence.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Slugs second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Marlins.

Getting the start at first base while Pete Alonso got a bit of a breather as the DH, Smith took Humberto Mejia deep in the second inning, but it was the only run the Mets could muster against the 23-year-old in his big-league debut. Smith has started five of the last six games in the wake of Yoenis Cespedes' decision to opt out of the rest of the campaign, and on the season he's slashing .227/.345/.545 with two homers and eight RBI.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Drives in two Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

Getting a start for the fourth time in the last five games, the 25-year-old delivered his first two-bagger of the season and upped his RBI total to seven in eight games. Now that Yoenis Cespedes is out of the picture, Smith may be the preferred option in left field for manager Luis Rojas once the rest of the roster is healthy again, with J.D. Davis slotting in at designated hitter. For Wednesday's contest, however, Davis was needed at third base in place of Jeff McNeil (back), putting Billy Hamilton in the outfield and Smith at DH.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Opportunities open up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith should step into an increased role after Yoenis Cespedes opted out of the 2020 season Sunday, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.

Smith received the start in left field Sunday and went 1-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts, and he should be in the lineup more going forward with Cespedes opting out. Smith appeared in 89 games last season and had somewhat of a breakout year with a .282/.355/.525 slash line and 11 home runs, but he entered 2020 as the odd man out for playing time. Most of his time figures to come as the designated hitter since he remains subpar defensively at first base and in the outfield.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Enters Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is starting in left field and batting seventh Sunday against the Braves, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

Smith is tied for second on the team with five RBI through nine games, though Sunday will be only his fourth start of the season. The 25-year-old is likely to continue being utilized in a reserve role but could push for a larger role with continued strong performances at the plate.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Lifts three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox.

Smith's long ball came against Red Sox reliever Jeffrey Springs in the fourth inning, extending the Mets' lead to 7-0. Monday marked Smith's first start of the season -- he's behind Yoenis Cespedes for starts at designated hitter to begin the 2020 campaign.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Candidate for designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith could serve as the Mets' designated hitter in 2020, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Smith's roster spot was in jeopardy in the spring, but he could benefit from both the universal designated hitter and the expanded 30-man roster. The team has a flurry of candidates to serve as the designated hitter, including Yoenis Cespedes and Matt Adams, among others. Smith appeared in 89 games for the Mets last season, slashing .282/.355/.525 with 11 home runs and 25 RBI.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Bench spot in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith could be squeezed off the Mets' 26-man roster if the delayed start to the regular season allows both Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) and Jed Lowrie (knee) to avoid the injured list.

When spring training started, Smith's bench spot seemed secure even after the offseason addition of Matt Adams, as both injured veterans seemed unlikely to be ready to play by the end of March. With Opening Day now pushed off into the future, however, Cespedes and Lowrie could get enough recovery time, giving the club some tough decisions. For his part, Smith wasn't doing much in camp to force his way onto the roster -- he'd gone 3-for-28 (.107) with zero extra-base hits and a 1:8 BB:K when the Grapefruit League schedule was put on pause.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Clobbers walkoff shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-1 with a three-run homer in Sunday's 7-6 win over Atlanta.

Smith entered the game as a defensive replacement for Pete Alonso in the top of the 11th inning and ended the game with a three-run blast in the bottom of the frame. It was his first at-bat since July 26. He ends the 2019 campaign with 11 homers, 25 RBI and a .881 OPS over 197 plate appearances.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) was reinstated from the 60-day IL on Thursday.

Smith will join the Mets for the final four games of the season after missing two months with a stress reaction in his left foot. Prior to landing on the shelf, the 24-year-old hit .278 with 10 home runs and an .858 OPS through 88 games. Jeff McNeil (wrist) was shifted to the 60-day IL in a corresponding move. According to Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record, manager Mickey Callaway said Smith will likely serve as a bench option.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Could return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mickey Callaway said Smith (foot) could be activated from the injured list Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Smith went through a workout on the field Wednesday, which included hitting and running the bases. If he's still feeling good Thursday, it sounds like the 24-year-old could be cleared to return for the final four games of the season. He's been sidelined since the end of July with a stress reaction in his left foot.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Another live BP session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot), who is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Marlins, took live batting practice prior to the game, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

Smith is eligible to return from the 60-day IL on Wednesday, though the Mets are waiting on results from his most recent CT scan before deciding whether to activate him. Even if the team is eliminated from the playoffs in the coming days, Smith could still see a handful of at-bats over the final week of the season, assuming he checks out OK.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Faces live pitching
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) hit against live pitching Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Smith hadn't faced live pitching since suffering a stress fracture in his foot in late July. He'll be eligible to return Wednesday and appears to have a chance to do so if a follow-up CT scan that day yields good news. The Mets may want him to make a handful of at-bats over the final few games even if they're eliminated from playoff contention by that point.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Hopes to return Sept. 25
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) hopes to be ready to be activated when first eligible Sept. 25, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

He took a big step in his recovery Wednesday running and hitting off a tee for the first time since suffering a stress fracture in his left foot in July. It will be all about whether Smith can work his way into game shape over the next two weeks. At best, he would be available for the final five games of the regular season.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

As a result of this move, Smith is not eligible to return until Sept. 25. He was cleared for some baseball activities in late August but is far from a lock to play during that final week of the regular season.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Cleared for baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) has been cleared to begin some baseball activities, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Smith is trending in the right direction, as he recently shed his walking boot and has been cleared to play catch for the first time since landing on the injured list at the end of July with a stress reaction in his left foot. The 24-year-old still hasn't been given the green light to resume running, however, leaving him without a concrete timetable for his return.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Weeks away from shedding boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) is scheduled for a doctor's appointment in a few weeks, at which point he's hopeful to shed his walking boot, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Smith has been dealing with a stress reaction in his left foot since the end of July, and he's been in a walking boot since. "We're hoping the appointment goes well, and they say I can come out of the boot and once that happens hopefully I can get back quickly with no setbacks," stated Smith. A timetable for his return likely won't come into focus until after his appointment.

Mets' Dominic Smith: Out another three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his left foot and will remain in a walking boot for a few weeks, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Smith underwent a CT scan earlier in the week which apparently did not yield positive results. He'll be withheld from baseball activities for at least the next few weeks as a result, suggesting he won't be ready to return until the end of August, at the earliest. J.D. Davis should continue to see time in left field while Smith is on the shelf.
