Athletics' Chris Smith: Endures rough 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith, who wrapped up his 2017 campaign with 1.2 scoreless innings in last Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Rangers, generated an 0-4 record, 6.79 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 55.2 innings in 2017.

The 36-year-old right-hander might be nearing the end of the line if his 2017 performance is any indication. Smith gave up multiple earned runs in 10 of 14 appearances, including eight straight at one point. Smith's ERA was his highest since his rookie 2008 campaign, while his 5.0 K/9 and 2.6 HR/9 were career-worst figures. Moreover, the veteran's numbers could have been even more unsightly, considering he had the benefit of a .244 BABIP allowed.

Athletics' Chris Smith: Moved to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will be removed from the starting rotation and work out of the bullpen moving forward, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Smith was shelled for seven runs during his Monday start against the Angels and now holds an unsightly 7.11 ERA on the season. He'll presumably work in a long-relief role moving forward, with Daniel Mengden taking his spot in the starting rotation.

Athletics' Chris Smith: Allows seven runs in no-decision Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks across 3.1 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Angels. He struck out three.

Smith was victimized by the long ball in this one, yielding six runs via the home run before his removal in the fourth. He threw just 55 percent of his pitches for strikes and was unable to pitch effectively from behind. Smith could remain in the rotation for the remainder of the season, but he's looked outclassed at this level, allowing 33 earned runs over his last 26.2 innings. He's slated to start during Saturday's double-header against the Astros.

Athletics' Chris Smith: Likely to remain in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is likely to remain a part of the starting rotation for the balance of the regular season in the wake of Paul Blackburn's season-ending wrist injury, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

The 36-year-old right-hander is coming off a forgettable month of August (0-3 record, 8.49 ERA over five starts), but Blackburn's injury will apparently afford him an opportunity to make up for it in the final month of the season. A career minor-leaguer, Smith hadn't started a game at the big-league level until doing so on July 8. He's often appeared overmatched after tossing a trio of quality starts to open his current stint with the A's.

Athletics' Chris Smith: Burned by Angels on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (0-4) fell to the Angels on Tuesday, getting tagged for seven runs (six earned) on five hits and two walks over 3.2 innings while striking out only one.

Two of those hits left the yard, marking the third time in Smith's last four starts that he's surrendered multiple homers. With a 6.27 ERA, 26:17 K:BB and 2.5 HR/9 in 47.1 big-league innings, Smith should be far away from any active fantasy rosters ahead of Monday's home rematch with the Angels.
