Smith is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Dodgers.
Smith will get his second day off in four days, this time against right-hander Trevor Bauer. Josh Rojas will slide from second base to right field for the series opener.
Smith went 1-for-5 with two RBI in Wednesday's loss against the Giants.
Smith made his presence felt in the top of the sixth inning with a two-out, two-run single that scored Josh Rojas and Ketel Marte, but he was silent the rest of the way. The first baseman has been very inconsistent at the plate and has hit safely in just five of his last 11 contests, posting a meager .216 average with just three RBI and a 3:8 BB:K in that span (37 at-bats).
Smith is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Giants.
Smith struck out twice in an 0-for-4 performance in Monday's loss to San Francisco. He'll get a breather for at least the beginning of Tuesday's game while veteran Josh Reddick mans right field and bats seventh.
Smith isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Athletics.
Smith went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to Oakland, but he'll get a breather for Wednesday's series finale. Christian Walker will take over at first base and bat fourth.
Smith started in left field and went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Oakland.
With Arizona playing in an American League ballpark, manager Torey Lovullo could get all of his hitters in the lineup. That meant Smith, Josh Reddick and Christian Walker could coexist. On Tuesday, the manager used David Peralta at DH while Smith started in left field for the first time this season. As one of the few members of the team that's hitting with regularity, Smith should be in the lineup Wednesday. He's hit safely in 16 of 18 games, going 25-for-64 (.391) with seven extra-base hits, eight RBI and 12 runs scored during that stretch.
Smith is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers.
Christian Walker's recent return from the injured list and Josh Reddick's ongoing surge at the plate has made finding playing time for Smith more of a challenge of late, but the rookie still appears fairly secure in a near-everyday role. Though he'll sit Thursday, Smith has earned regular at-bats for an Arizona squad going nowhere by providing an .804 OPS while striking out in only 16.1 percent of his 218 plate appearances on the season.
Smith started at first base and went 1-for-4 with a walk, a three-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Mets.
Smith extended his hitting streak to 12 games, a stretch during which he's gone 19-for-46 (.413) with six extra-base hits (two homers), eight RBI and nine runs scored during the streak. He and Josh Reddick have been the hottest hitters in the lineup, so manager Torey Lovullo is working to get both in the lineup whenever possible. The manager had the lefty Smith start at first base Sunday and Monday against right-handers instead of the righty-batting Christian Walker.
Smith is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals.
The 25-year-old went 3-for-4 with a run scored Saturday and will take a seat in the series finale with Christian Walker starting at first base. Smith saw most of his recent action at first base, but he'll likely split reps with Josh Reddick in right field going forward after Walker was activated from the injured list Saturday.
Smith started in right field and went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Cardinals.
Smith moved to right field from first base to make room for Christian Walker, who was activated off the injured list. Smith had been filling in for injured players in center field, right field and at first base, but those players are starting to return and opportunities for Smith are dwindling. Right field, which is available due to Kole Calhoun's hamstring injury, is where the at-bats exist now. It may come down to a choice between Smith and Josh Reddick, who started seven of the team's first eight games since joining the roster, and the non-contending Diamondbacks would likely choose the younger Smith.
Smith went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple and two walks in Friday's 8-6 loss to St. Louis.
Smith had his fourth consecutive multi-hit game and ran his overall hit streak to eight contests, going 13-for-32 with five extra-base hits and five RBI during the run. Since the arrival of Josh Reddick and the return of Ketel Marte to Arizona's outfield, Smith has made a home at first base, a position normally manned by the injured Christian Walker (oblique). However, Walker will be evaluated following Friday's rehab appearance and could return to action this weekend.
Smith went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and three RBI in Thursday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to St. Louis.
The first baseman put Arizona within a run on a two-RBI double in the seventh. He added a game-tying RBI double in the eighth. Smith has gone 11-for-29 (.379) with a home run, five RBI and four runs scored during a seven-game hitting streak. Overall, he's slashing .271/.314/.420 with four home runs, 18 RBI, 26 runs scored and a stolen base in 194 plate appearances. He's added 11 doubles and two triples. Smith has played well enough lately to stick in the lineup even when Christian Walker (oblique) returns from his rehab assignment.
Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Colorado.
Smith put Arizona in the lead with his two-run shot off Jon Gray in the sixth inning, his fourth long ball of the year. It was his first homer since May 2, and he has just five extra-base hits this month. The 25-year-old owns a .697 OPS through 181 plate appearances this season.
Smith started in center field Tuesday then shifted to first base when Christian Walker (oblique) was removed from the game. He went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored.
Smith has been getting a steady dose of at-bats due to early-season injuries. This is Walker's second go-round with a sore right oblique muscle after spending three weeks on the injured list because of it. With Ketel Marte (hamstring) nearing a rehab assignment, at-bats in center field will dry up for Smith. That leaves either first base, pending Walker's status, or right field, where Kole Calhoun (hamstring) is out until mid-June.
Smith went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Monday's 5-2 win over Miami.
Smith knocked a leadoff double in the first inning and came around to score on a David Peralta groundout. The 25-year-old outfielder then singled and scored in the third. He's scored 16 runs with 13 extra-base hits through 126 plate appearances.
Smith went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Thursday's 3-1 loss to Miami.
Smith provided the only offense for the Diamondbacks, who had trouble scoring runs during a three-game sweep at the hands of the Marlins. He's been a lineup regular for much of the season due to injuries and should continue to see regular at-bats with Kole Calhoun (hamstring) sidelined until mid-June.
Smith went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the 8-4 win Sunday over the Rockies.
Smith went deep off Chi Chi Gonzalez in the fifth inning Sunday for his third home run of the season. He has hit consistently in the leadoff spot, collecting six hits -- including three extra-base hits -- in his last four games. The 25-year-old is slashing .272/.309/.478 in 97 plate appearances.
Smith went 1-for-4 with a triple, a run scored and a walk in the 7-2 win over the Rockies on Friday.
Smith tripled off Jon Gray in the fourth inning for his second triple of the season. He drew a walk for only the fifth time this year in 88 plate appearances. The 25-year-old continues to be in the leadoff role and is slashing .265/.307/.458.
Smith may need to fill in for the injured Kole Calhoun (hamstring) in right field.
Smith has received a steady diet of at-bats at first base with Christian Walker (oblique) on the mend, but the Diamondbacks may need a replacement in right field after Calhoun was removed from Tuesday's game. Calhoun is set for an MRI on Wednesday, which should clarify his status going forward. Josh Rojas and Josh VanMeter are also candidates for at-bats.
Smith went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-0 win over the Braves.
Smith's second home run of the year came off Drew Smyly in the first inning of Game 2 in the doubleheader Sunday. He homered as the leadoff batter, and the 25-year-old is batting .357 in his last six games since taking over the leadoff spot. In 19 games this season, he is slashing .288/.329/.485.
Smith went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 5-4 loss to Atlanta.
Smith made his second consecutive start in center field, the first two of his career in center, and fourth consecutive as the Diamondbacks' leadoff hitter. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo had initially used Nick Heath as a replacement for Tim Locastro (finger) and Ketel Marte (hamstring), but he's gone with Smith's potentially more damaging bat Thursday and Friday. Smith has hit safely in five of the last six games, going 8-for-29 with three doubles, two RBI and five runs scored.
