Seth Smith swats 10th home run Wednesday vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith went 2 for 3 with two walks and a solo home run in his team's 6-3 loss to the Rockies Wednesday.

Smith was 0 for 8 in his last two outings before smacking a pinch-hit double against the Rockies Tuesday, and that success carried over into Wednesday's homer-laden affair, as the two teams combined to knock seven balls over the outfield fence. Smith has hit .281/.383/.510 with 10 home runs and 27 RBI in 253 at-bats.


Seth Smith sitting against southpaw Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) A matchup against Colorado left-hander Tyler Matzek and mini-slump have Padres left fielder Seth Smith sidelined Monday night.

Smith has just four hits in 23 at-bats against southpaws this season. He is also hitless in his last two games.


Seth Smith inks two-year extension with Padres


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) The Padres announced Wednesday they signed outfielder Seth Smith to a two-year contract extension, which includes a club option for 2017. Smith, who was slated to be a free agent in the offseason, has been linked to trade rumors.

Seth Smith homers in three-hit performance Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith went 3 for 4 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and three runs scored in his team's 8-2 win over the Reds Tuesday.

Smith came up in the eighth inning with a shot at the first cycle in franchise history but drew a free pass instead. The big night ends a 0-for-17 skid over his last five games. Smith has hit .281/.384/.506 with nine home runs and 25 RBI in 235 at-bats.


Teams calling Padres about outfielders, relievers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) The Padres have been receiving interest from other teams regarding potential trades involving outfielders Seth Smith and Chris Denorfia, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, the most interest has been for relievers Huston Street and Joaquin Benoit.

Seth Smith achieves first two-homer game in three years


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Padres left fielder Seth Smith didn't come to the plate during a three-run rally in the ninth inning Friday night that upended the Dodgers. But his heroics earlier in the game made that comeback possible.

Smith managed his first two-homer game since August 8, 2011. He hit solo blasts in the first and sixth innings and added a double in the eighth that went to waste. His big game ended a 3-for-23 slide.


Hitters to sit in Week 9


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/24/2014) Thinking about starting Derek Norris, Garrett Jones, Emilio Bonifacio, Kyle Seager, Erick Aybar or Seth Smith in Fantasy Week 9 (May 26-June 1)? You may want to think again.

Find out why in my latest Start and Sit Hitters column.


Seth Smith provides lone highlight for Padres with homer


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Pretty much the only hot hitter wearing a Padres uniform remained the only hot hitter wearing a Padres uniform Thursday as the only hitter that produced a run.

Seth Smith slugged a solo home run in the first inning to get his team off on the right foot in a 5-1 loss to the Cubs. His third tater in the last five games rose his batting average to .338. His slugging percentage of .615 is 242 points higher than any teammate that started the game.


Time to get serious about Seth Smith


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/2014) Most Fantasy owners, myself included, have steadfastly ignored Seth Smith, labeling him a platoon player with (outside of Colorado, anyway) an unsatisfactory track record whose miraculous May is nothing more than a hot streak. 

And maybe it is.

But it's lasted a long time now. Even sitting against left-handers Jeff Francis and Jorge De La Rosa Thursday and Friday wasn't enough to cool him off. He returned with a home run Saturday and another Sunday, giving him three to go along with eight doubles, three triples a .440 batting average and a 1.433 OPS in May. And you thought Domonic Brown was hot last May.

Nobody would claim Smith is this good, but is he better than he's shown to this point in his career? It's something to consider. He has always walked at a high rate and had a couple years in Colorado where he compiled better than an .800 OPS as a result. And though PETCO Park is no Coors Field, its new dimensions have made it fairly kind to left-handed power pitchers. Maybe playing in Oakland was Smith's biggest problem.

Of course, for him to remain relevant in Fantasy beyond this hot streak, he'll have to play more regularly, but after what happened with Derek Norris in Oakland, I wouldn't rule it out. He's basically the Padres' entire offense right now.


Seth Smith clubs fourth home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith clubbed his fourth home run Saturday against the Rockies.

Smith homered in his first at-bat of the game. He stepped to the plate with one man on in the second inning. On the third pitch, he hit a 93 mph home run out to center for the two-run shot. Smith finished 1 for 3, with two runs scored and two RBI. Smith also took two walks during the game.


Hitters to start in Week 8


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/17/2014) What do Yan Gomes, Mark Teixeira, Yangervis Solarte, Pablo Sandoval, Asdrubal Cabrera and Seth Smith have in common? They're all "starts" in Fantasy Week 8 (May 19-25).

Of course, whether or not you actually start them depends on what else you have. Find all the context you need in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Seth Smith a good Fantasy start for the time being


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) It was nice to see Padres outfielder Seth Smith have a little success on the road Tuesday at Cincinnati, going 2 for 4 with one double and one run. He's now raised his road batting average to .190 (8 for 42).

Smith was a player featured in this week's Waiver Wire column. Highlighted were his home/road splits, as well as the fact he still doesn't get a ton of playing time against lefties. 

Smith is really on a roll right now, batting .528 (19 for 36) with one home run, three triples, eight doubles and seven RBI during a nine-game hitting streak. Obviously, it's far-fetched to believe he can keep up at this current pace, so Fantasy owners are going to have to be ready to bench or drop Smith once he cools off.

It's good to see Smith adjusting well to his new home ballpark, but he's still not at the level of a must-add player. Definitely ride out the hot streak, but Smith probably will be just a rotational outfielder in mixed leagues.


Seth Smith falls single short of cycle Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith came a single shy of a cycle Saturday, going 3 for 4 with a double, triple and home run in his team's 9-3 win over the Marlins.

Smith also drew a walk in the win while collecting four RBI. He's been hot as of late, hitting a double in three straight games and a triple in back-to-back games. Smith has gone 15 for 27 with 10 extra-base hits over his last seven games, pushing his line to .327/.420/.574 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 101 at-bats.


Seth Smith collects three hits Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith collected three hits Friday against the Marlins.

Smith flew out in his first at-bat, but got things going soon after. His second time up, Smith just missed a home run, settling for a triple after a review. He singled in the sixth, and hit a two run double in the eighth.

Smith finished 3 for 5, with one run scored and two RBI.


Seth Smith returns to action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants, after sitting out a few games with a right groin strain.

Smith appeared in Tuesday's game as a pinch-hitter and told reporters he expected to return Wednesday, so this does not come as much of a surprise. He is hitting .273/.380/.424 in 66 at-bats this season. 


Seth Smith could return to lineup Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith took batting practice Tuesday and could return to the starting lineup Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

"That's not out of the question," manager Bud Black said before Tuesday's game. "All that depends on how he does today in the pregame when he ramps up the intensity of his running out here. I'll have a better idea once this game unfolds, how he feels."

Smith suffered a right groin strain Thursday and has been out of commission while recovering. He has hit .277/.385/.431 with two home runs and seven RBI in 65 at-bats.


Seth Smith out of lineup again Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Seth Smith not in lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith did not return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Giants.

Smith had to leave Thursday's game with a groin injury, but manager Bud Black said over the weekend that the outfielder could potentially return Monday. He'll remain day to day instead. Smith has hit .277/.385/.431 with two home runs and seven RBI in 65 at-bats.


Seth Smith could return to lineup on Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith will try to take some swings in the batting cage Saturday, according to MLB.com.

Smith has been sidelined since leaving Thursday's series opener against the Nationals with a groin injury. Manager Bud Black said there's a chance that Smith returns to the lineup Monday against the Giants.

Smith is hitting .277 with two home runs and seven RBI in 65 at-bats.

Seth Smith still sidelined Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Padres left fielder Seth Smith remained out of the lineup Saturday against Washington and he continues to deal with a groin injury. He did not play in the series opener.

Seth Smith to sit for Padres on Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) A groin injury sustained Thursday night has Padres left fielder Seth Smith sidelined for the Friday night game in Washington. 

Smith generally plays against right-handers and is on a six-game hitting streak. The Nationals will be starting righty Stephen Strasburg.


Seth Smith exits game with groin strain


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith was forced out of Thursday's game against the Nationals because of right groin strain.

Smith was removed from the game in the 11th inning after grounding out to second base. He was replaced by starting pitcher Andrew Cashner. Cashner became the first pitcher in franchise history to play outfield.

Smith doubled in a run in the fourth and finished 1 for 3 with two walks, a run scored and an RBI before the injury. He is hitting .277 with two home runs and seven RBI in 65 at-bats. His status remains uncertain for the second game of a four-game series on Friday.

Seth Smith homers in second straight game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) After smacking a pinch-hit home run to key a three-run rally in Sunday's season-opening win, Padres outfielder Seth Smith found himself batting second Tuesday, and he delivered another home run as part of a 2-for-3 game in his team's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Smith should see plenty of action against right-handers this season, and both home runs came off Dodger righties. The Padres are up against another righty in Dan Haren Wednesday, and Smith could find himself right back in the No. 2 slot for that contest.


Seth Smith adds pinch of power in first Padres at-bat


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Seth Smith made his lone at-bat count in his debut with the Padres against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Down 1-0, Smith made a pinch-hit appearance for Rene Revera and took Brian Wilson deep for a game-tying solo home run, sparking a three-run eighth inning for the Padres. He finished 1 for 1 with one run and one RBI in a 3-1 victory.

Smith batted .253 with eight home runs and 40 RBI last year for the A's.


Seth Smith's late-season surge linked to minor eye surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Padres outfielder Seth Smith told MLB.com he was in a "bad spot offensively" in 2013 for the A's and felt like there was no escaping a season-long slump.

"The usual fixes weren't getting me out of it, either. I knew something was up," he said.

Smith, however, would eventually find some success after undergoing touch-up Lasik surgery on his left eye to improve his vision. Smith said he had Lasik surgery on both eyes in 2006.

"I would lose some balls on the outside [corner], and I wasn't really able to see them that well when they got to the plate, especially during night games," Smith said.

The surgery definitely seemed to help. After hitting .241 with a .367 slugging percentage and .682 OPS through mid-August, Smith would hit .341 with a .568 slugging percentage and 1.000 OPS in 22 games after returning from the eye surgery. He would go on to hit .313 with a .500 slugging percentage and .853 OPS in the ALDS against Detroit.

"It's hard to say if it's physical or mental," Smith said. "We're crazy humans, and sometimes feeling like a better baseball player can make you a better baseball player."
