Burch Smith struggles again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2013) Padres starting pitcher Burch Smith could not make it out of the second inning Wednesday in his third major-league start.

He surrendered three runs in the first inning on three hits and three walks, then gave up singles to the first two hitters in the second before being pulled. One of those runners would score, leaving Smith with four earned runs on five hits and three walks in one inning.

This is the second time in three starts Smith has been unable to get out of the second inning. He threw 42 pitches as his ERA rose to 18.41. Smith took the loss in the 5-3 defeat.

Smith is not assured another turn in the rotation with how poorly he has pitched, although he is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Mariners.

Smith has allowed 11 runs over his last 6 1/3 innings of work since joining the majors. He has struck out 10 and walked three over that span.

Burch Smith working on off-speed pitches


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) After lasting just one-plus inning in his major-league debut, Padres starter Burch Smith worked on some things during his side session Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

The right-hander plans on using his curveball and changeup more when he takes the hill again Friday against the Nationals.

"I think the side session went well, and I tried to absorb as much information as I could. We discussed the differences between a fastball-dominant pitcher in the minor leagues and one in the big leagues," Smith said.

Smith worked with pitching coach Darren Balsley and bullpen coach Willie Blair during his session.

"It was big for him -- and Darren and Willie to see him in a normal side session. Today, they were able to see the pitches that he's going to have to use in major league games," manager Bud Black said. "Today was a good situation, fundamentally."

Smith, who left the game after he allowed six runs and retired just three batters, will take the hill again Friday at home against Washington.

"He was disappointed in his outing," Black said Sunday. "He will be back up on the horse later this week. But he's not going to back off his game."


Burch Smith endures nightmarish MLB debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2013) Padres pitcher Burch Smith, who was recently called up from Double-A San Antonio, failed to make it out of the second inning during his season debut Saturday against the Rays.

Smith pitched a scoreless first before getting roughed up in the second. He served up a two-run home run to James Loney, a two-run single to Yunel Escobar and a run-scoring double to Matt Joyce before recording an out in the second frame.

The 23-year-old was charged with six runs and five hits in one inning but he managed to settle for a no-decision. He struck out two and walked two on 42 pitches, 26 of them for strikes.

Smith is scheduled to start Friday at home against the Nationals.


Padres officially recall Burch Smith


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2013) The move had already been announced, but the Padres officially recalled starting pitcher Burch Smith from Double-A San Antonio Saturday. He will make his major-league debut against the Rays later in the day. 

Burch Smith worth a stab in the dark


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2013) Yes, I put in a claim for Burch Smith in a 24-team dynasty league where every pitcher with a rotation spot has some measure of value. No, I hadn't heard of him until Wednesday, when the Padres announced he would start Saturday's game against the Rays.

Few had. In fact, at the time of the announcement, he wasn't even available in the CBSSports.com database. But he is now, and I have to say I'm intrigued. Though Baseball America rated him only the 22nd-best prospect in the Padres organization, it noted his high-90s fastball and suggested he could be an intriguing option if he developed a useful breaking pitch. Judging by his numbers at Double-A San Antonio, maybe he has.

No one had heard of Dan Straily before he became the minor-league strikeout champ last year. Few had heard of Tony Cingrani before he stormed up the ladder last year, and look at him now. I'm not expecting much from Smith in Fantsay, but I'm happy taking a stranger-things-have-happened approach to him in deeper leagues.
