  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Not in Saturday's lineup

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes third straight start

    Smith started at designated hitter and went 1-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 10-2 loss to Houston.

    Smith has appeared in all four games since being activated from the injured list, including the last three as a starter -- twice against righties and once against a lefty -- and hit safely in all four contests. The demotion of Alek Thomas has created a path to at-bats for Smith, who could use the plate appearances after missing several months due to a fractured wrist. The 26-year-old outfielder/first baseman/DH is 5-for-12 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored since coming off the IL.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Ignites rally

    Smith started at designated hitter and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Giants.

    Smith led off the bottom of the fourth inning with a single, which ignited a five-run explosion after the Giants had gone ahead in the top of the frame. Smith was recently added to the roster following a lengthy rehab of a fractured wrist. He's filling in for Jake McCarthy (bereavement) for now but will remain on board when McCarthy returns.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Activated and promoted

    Smith (wrist) was activated off the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Smith has played in 65 games for Arizona this season while slashing .207/.290/.362 and racking up 31 RBI. He will join the D-backs' active roster following the placement of Jake McCarthy on the bereavement list. Smith will likely serve as a depth piece at first base and in the outfield.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Singles as pinch hitter

    Smith went 1-for-2 in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Giants.

    Smith was brought back to the majors after several months rehabbing a fractured right wrist following a July demotion to Triple-A Reno. He entered Friday's game as a pinch hitter and stayed in the game to DH. He'll get opportunities while Jake McCarthy is on the bereavement list, and Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told Jose M. Romero of the Arizona Republic that Smith will remain with the Diamondbacks even after McCarthy returns. Smith adds another lefty bat to a lefty-dominant roster and could spell existing starters in the outfield or fill in at first base for Christian Walker.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Goes on 60-day IL

    Triple-A Reno transferred Smith (wrist) from the 7-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Aug. 11.

    Smith was initially deactivated July 6 on account of a fractured right wrist, and his move to the 60-day IL ensures he won't make his return to the Reno lineup until at least the first week of September. The 26-year-old was optioned to Reno on July 2 and appeared in only two games at Triple-A before suffering the injury.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Suffers fractured wrist

    Smith was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Reno on Wednesday with a fractured right wrist, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    The 26-year-old was demoted to Reno over the weekend and sustained the broken wrist in only his second game with the affiliate. Smith has a non-displaced fracture and is also dealing with some ligament damage, and he's expected to be sidelined for at least 6-to-8 weeks.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Sent down Saturday

    Smith was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

    The 26-year-old lost out on regular at-bats over the last week and a half since Ketel Marte has been limited to serving as the designated hitter. Smith should see more playing time in the minors, while Cooper Hummel was recalled to take his place on the active roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Out of lineup Wednesday

    Smith isn't starting Wednesday against the Padres.

    Although right-hander Mike Clevinger is on the mound for San Diego on Wednesday, Smith will retreat to the bench for the fourth time in the last five games. Ketel Marte is serving as the designated hitter while Buddy Kennedy starts at the keystone.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: On bench against lefty

    Smith will sit against lefty Sean Manaea and the Padres on Tuesday.

    Smith was close to a true everyday player early in the season but has now been on the bench against the last four southpaws the Diamondbacks have faced. He owns a 61 wRC+ against lefties over the course of his career and a 102 wRC+ against righties, so avoiding same-sided pitching may be good for him.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Produces four hits, three RBI

    Smith went 4-for-5 with three RBI in Sunday's 11-7 win over the Tigers.

    Ketel Marte's continued presence as the designated hitter has cut into Smith's playing time lately. He made a case to get in the lineup more with four hits, all singles, including a go-ahead RBI knock in the sixth inning to spark Arizona's five-run rally. Smith has gone 7-for-16 (.438) in his last four contests, but he's slashing a meager .207/.288/.362 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 20 runs scored and a stolen base in 64 games overall. Once Marte is able to play at second base, Smith should be able to resume his regular role as the primary DH.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Remains on bench

    Smith isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Smith went 3-for-23 with a homer, three runs, two RBI, two walks and two strikeouts over his last six games, and he'll take a seat for the third time in the last four matchups. Ketel Marte is serving as the designated hitter while Buddy Kennedy starts at the keystone.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Riding pine Friday

    Smith isn't starting Friday against Detroit.

    Smith went 0-for-4 with a run and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Padres, and he'll be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Ketel Marte is serving as the designated hitter while Jake Hager starts at the keystone.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Not starting Tuesday

    Smith will sit Tuesday against San Diego.

    Smith has three hits across his last two games, though that follows a seven-game stretch in which he went 0-for-21. Ketel Marte (hamstring) will return to the lineup as the designated hitter Tuesday while Christian Walker starts at first base.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Goes deep in win

    Smith went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Twins.

    Smith started at first base Sunday, allowing Christian Walker to rest his legs as the designated hitter. In the fifth inning, Smith swatted the third of Arizona's four homers in the contest. Over his last 22 games, he's gone a meager 10-for-77 (.130) while losing out on an everyday job with the emergence of Alek Thomas in center field. Smith is slashing just .194/.274/.358 with nine long balls, 28 RBI, 19 runs scored, a stolen base and six doubles through 61 contests. With Daulton Varsho picking up time in right field and prospect Buddy Kennedy challenging for playing time as the designated hitter, Smith's role could further shrink if he can't get his bat going.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Day off Friday

    Smith isn't starting Friday's game against the Twins.

    Smith went 0-for-18 with a run, an RBI, a walk and two strikeouts over his last six games and will get a breather Friday. Buddy Kennedy is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes way for Varsho

    Smith will see his plate appearances cut back after Arizona manager Torey Lovullo announced that Daulton Varsho will become the team's primary right fielder, as reported by Steve Gilbert of MLB.com. Smith, who was not in the starting lineup for the second time in four games Monday, went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter and played right field for the final inning of a 5-4 loss to the Reds.

    Lovullo's decision to go with Alek Thomas in center field and Varsho in right puts a damper on Smith's at-bats. He was already being crowded by Jake McCarthy's roster presence and will be part of the mix at designated hitter and fill in at first base for Christian Walker. Smith, who has five hits over his last 51 at-bats (.098), is slashing .200/.286/.362 with eight home runs and 26 RBI over 210 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Takes seat Monday

    Smith isn't starting Monday's game against the Reds.

    Smith will get a breather after he went 0-for-7 with a walk and a strikeout over the last two games. Daulton Varsho is starting in right field while Jake McCarthy serves as the designated hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Not starting Friday

    Smith is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

    Smith clubbed a solo homer Thursday but has a .495 OPS through seven games in June and will take a seat Friday even though Philadelphia is sending righty Kyle Gibson to the mound. Daulton Varsho will rest his legs at designated hitter while Jose Herrera works behind the plate.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Slugs eighth homer

    Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored Thursday against the Reds.

    Smith took Tyler Mahle yard in the fifth inning to record his eighth home run of the season. He's homered five times in his last 16 games, also racking up 11 RBI and eight runs scored in that span. Overall, Smith has maintained a .210/.295/.381 line across 200 plate appearances on the season.
