Mariners reliever Carson Smith earning role as setup man
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Mariners relief pitcher Carson Smith doesn't have a defined role out of the bullpen, but it is becoming more and more clear by the game, according to The News Tribune.
Smith was called upon Friday and Saturday in the eighth inning to setup for closer Fernando Rodney. He did not allow a run in either inning, lowering his ERA to 0.90 in 20 innings of work.
"He's done a tremendous job for us," manager Lloyd McClendon said, "but we've got to be careful. We've got to be sure we don't overuse him, but he's got a bright future. That sinker is special.
"He's got a nice slider. More than anything, he's got great makeup. I think he's built for it."
Mariners pitcher Carson Smith still going through learning process
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Mariners relief pitcher Carson Smith is still finding out just how up and down the majors can be. The reliever had posted 20 consecutive scoreless innings before surrendering a go-ahead home run to Evan Gattis last week.
"I've had both sides," Smith said to The News Tribune. "I've been on the losing end and the winning end. You've just got to keep your head up and know that you're good enough to pitch up here. Prepare yourself that way."
Manager Lloyd McClendon still thinks it's very early to decide on how good Smith can be.
"It is a growing process," McClendon said, "but the thing I really like is is the ability to get back in there, get back in the fire and compete. He's not shying away. That's a good sign."
Smith is trying to keep a short memory.
"I try to flush it out as quick as I can," Smith said. "It'd be easy to say it's gone the minute it's over, but that's not the case. You sleep on it that night. But when you wake up and get to the field the next day by that time, it's gone."
Mariners reliever Carson Smith gives up first run of the season
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/3/15) Mariners rookie relief pitcher Carson Smith had gotten off to a fantastic start, not allowing a run in his first 19 1/3 appearances in the majors, but he finally picked up a blemish on his ledger Sunday, allowing a home run to Houston's Evan Gattis.
Smith had pitched in 20 straight scorless games to start his career, the third-longest streak in MLB history. But Gattis' home run sent the Mariners to their fourth straight defeat.
"It's baseball," Smith told MLB.com. "You give up hard-hit balls and get outs and you can give up soft-hit balls and get hits. That's the way it works. Today it didn't work out in my favor. I'll learn from it and move forward."
