Mariners planning on batting Smith, Ruggiano in second spot in lineup
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/26/15) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said he is tentatively planning to bat the right-field tandem of Seth Smith and Justin Ruggiano second in the lineup, per The New Tribune.
The Mariners ranked last in the majors last season in on-base percentage (.260) from their No. 2 hitters. No other team was lower than .279.
Smith had a .367 OBP last season for San Diego, while Ruggiano had a .337 OBP in 81 games for the Cubs.
Mariners trade Brandon Maurer to Padres for Seth Smith
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(12/30/14) The Mariners agreed to trade pitcher Brandon Maurer to the Padres in exchange for outfielder Seth Smith.
In 2014, the right-handed Maurer went 1-4 with a 4.65 ERA and fills the Padres’ need for bullpen help. The left-handed-hitting Smith hit .266 with 12 homeruns and 48 RBI in 136 games.
Mariners showing interest in Padres outfielder Seth Smith
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/30/14) The Mariners have shown interest in acquiring Padres outfielder Seth Smith, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Padres are seeking a power bullpen arm in return for Smith, who has been the subject of trade rumors.
Smith is under contract through the 2016 season and his contract includes a $7 million team option ($250,000 buyout) for 2017.
Report: Orioles interested in Padres' Will Venable, Seth Smith
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) The Orioles have continued dialogue with the Padres regarding trading for an outfielder, with Padres outfielders Will Venable and Seth Smith drawing the most interest from the team, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Either player would address the team's need for lefthanded hitters who fare well against righthanded pitching. While neither figures to receive significant playing time in San Diego after the Padres imported three outfielders via trade this offseason, either Smith or Venable would be expected to assume a platoon role with Baltimore at the outset of the season with the potential to earn a full-time starting position.
Report: Padres' Seth Smith popping up in trade talks
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/17/14) Padres outfielder Seth Smith has come up in trade talks recently, according to ESPN.
If the Matt Kemp and Wil Myers trades go through, the team would have a surplus in the outfield. On top of those two players, San Diego would also have Carlos Quentin, Will Venable, Cameron Maybin and Smith. The 32-year-old Smith hit .266/.367/.440 over 443 at-bats last year.
2014 Summary: Seth Smith
was the ultimate daily league pick. The eight-year veteran had always hit righties well, and with the move to PETCO Park, Smith was back in a venue that was amenable to left-handed power -- at least since the fences were moved in two seasons ago. Smith played to his strengths, batting .271 with eight home runs in 214 home at-bats against right-handed pitchers, while hitting just four home runs in his remaining 229 at-bats. His penchant for walks (13.2 percent of plate appearances) and doubles landed him among the top 50 outfielders in points leagues, but Smith remained outside the top 70 outfielders in Rotisserie value.
Playing time status: With the Padres' acquisitions of Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and Wil Myers, Smith was sent packing to the Mariners in a December deal. He will likely inherit the meatier portion of a right field platoon with Justin Ruggiano.
2015 Outlook: Even if he received full-time at-bats, Smith's overall numbers aren't good enough to make him worth drafting in standard mixed leagues. Though his power numbers may suffer with the move to Seattle, Smith is a decent late-round option in deeper mixed leagues.
