Dodgers' Will Smith: Goes yard against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss against the Giants.

Smith has been one of the best offensive catchers in all of baseball this season and his power displays have been noticeable of late, as he has three homers over his last five contests. The backstop is hitting .261 with a .844 OPS through 80 games this season and should continue to handle most of the catching duties in one of the most complete lineups in the National League.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Plays hero with walkoff homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith drilled a walkoff three-run home run in his only at-bat against the Giants on Tuesday.

The backstop got a scheduled breather Tuesday, as Austin Barnes started the contest behind the plate for Los Angeles. However, Smith was summoned to pinch hit with two runners on base and the Dodgers down a run in the ninth inning. After looking at a strike on Tyler Rogers' first pitch, Smith sent the following offering 419 feet over the left-field wall to give the Dodgers the big win. Smith has been one of the best offensive catchers in baseball this season with a .264/.369/.475 slash line, 12 home runs and 42 RBI. Over his past four games, he has gone 6-for-12 with two homers and 10 RBI.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Homers, steals bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, a walk and a stolen base Sunday against the Rockies.

The 26-year-old catcher is slashing .265/.368/.466 in 285 plate appearances on the year.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Gets Saturday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will sit Saturday against the Rockies, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

Smith remains on pace to blow past manager Dave Roberts' preseason estimate of 90 starts, as his 60 games started in the team's first 93 contests put him on pace for 105 by the end of the year. His .256/.361/.449 slash line means the Dodgers are unlikely to cut his playing time any time soon, but he'll get a brief rest Saturday, with Austin Barnes starting behind the plate.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Plates four Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, four RBI and a run Friday in the Dodgers' 10-4 win over the Rockies.

The four RBI established a new season high for Smith, who had driven in four runs combined over his final nine games prior to the All-Star break. Smith hit out of the cleanup spot Friday, and his presence in the heart of a loaded Los Angeles lineup should continue to make him one of the most valuable fantasy catchers during the second half.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Resting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will sit Saturday against the Diamondbacks, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Smith's bat has gone cold over his last 12 games, as he's hit just .171/.279/.257 over that stretch. He'll sit in favor of Austin Barnes on Saturday.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is on the bench for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

Saturday night's rain delay led to a long night behind the plate for Smith, so it's understandable that he sits out Sunday's morning game. Smith has struggled a bit offensively of late, hitting .220 in his last 15 games. Austin Barnes will catch and bat eighth Sunday.

Dodgers' Will Smith: Smacks 10th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith blasted his fourth-inning homer off Giants starter Anthony DeSclafani to extend Los Angeles' lead to 3-1 and provide valuable insurance in a game where runs were difficult to come by. The long ball snapped an 0-for-8 mini-slump for the backstop, who's now slashing .261/.363/.478.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
