7/4/2014 9:39:00 AM
Description: San Diego outfielder Seth Smith may be the Padres best hitter this season, but he's never been able to do anything with Matt Cain's offerings.

Description: San Diego outfielder Seth Smith has enjoyed success against Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum to the tune of a .297 lifetime average (11-for-37) and three home runs.
Insight: Smith has scalded right-handers this season (.306/.403/.544) and has all eight of his homers against them compared to a measly .190/.393/.333 slash line against lefties. While he's been much better at home than on the road, he's still a solid bet to produce tonight.
 
6/23/2014 10:27:00 AM

Insight: Smith is batting .277 this season with a pair of homers and seven RBI and owns a modest six-game hitting streak, but this is an extremely unfavorable matchup.

Description: San Diego right fielder Seth Smith hit a home run for the second straight game Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Smith had a game-tying pinch-hit shot off Brian Wilson in the eighth inning Sunday night, and he went deep off Zack Greinke Tuesday. The 31-year-old had 14-17 HRs in every season from 2009-12 but hit just eight in 117 games with Oakland last year.

Insight: Smith didn't do much this season batting .253 with eight homers and 40 RBI in 368 at-bats, but this is a favorable matchup. He went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 1-0 victory over the Tigers.
 
8/7/2013 9:52:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith is a career 6-for-14 (.429) with three home runs and a 1.571 OPS against Reds starter Homer Bailey.
Insight: Since leaving the thin Colorado air, Smith has done little to excite fantasy owners. He's batting .243 with a .728 OPS in 214 games with the A's, but this is a favorable matchup.

Insight: Since leaving the thin Colorado air, Smith has done little to excite fantasy owners. He's batting .244 with a .729 OPS in 213 games with the A's. Look elsewhere for outfield help.
 
Cold7/3/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith is a career 1-for-11 (.091) against Cubs right-hander Matt Garza with five strikeouts.
Insight: Smith has been a solid DH for the A's, who despite going 3-for-15 over the past four games is batting .278 with six homers, 32 RBI and 34 runs, but Wednesday is an unfavorable matchup to be avoided.
 
Hot6/26/2013 9:28:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith "owns" Cincinnati starter Homer Bailey, batting .545 with three home runs and a 2.000 OPS in 11 at-bats.

6/13/2013 10:41:00 AM

Hot4/14/2013 1:25:00 PM
Description: A's left fielder Seth Smith owns Anibal Sanchez. In 13 previous at bats, Smith has collected six hits against the Tigers righthander.
Insight: Two of the six hits have gone for home runs. If Smith had enough at bats to qualify, he'd lead the majors in batting average (.500 in 26 at bats).
 
2/16/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Oakland outfielder Seth Smith has been working out at first base in spring training.
Insight: Smith smacked 14 homers in 125 games as a platoon player last season and has hit between 14-17 homers in each of the last four seasons despite limited at-bats. Playing an additional position could get him a few more at-bats and with a lifetime .815 OPS he could become a viable fantasy option.
 
1/17/2013 8:48:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Seth Smith and the A's were able to avoid arbitration by coming to terms on a new one-year contract.
Insight: Smith smacked 14 homers in 125 games as a platoon player last season. Now that Jonny Gomes is with the Red Sox, he should begin to see a bit more playing time.

Insight: Smith went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's heartbreaking extra innings loss. Pencil him in for another couple of hits Sunday against Kuroda (14-10, 3.26 ERA).
