  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Starts at first base

    Smith started at first base and went 0-for-2 in Sunday's 5-3 win over San Francisco.

    Smith started in place of a resting Christian Walker, who eventually entered the game as a pinch hitter and finished up at first. Smith has appeared in all three games since being called up from Triple-A Reno on Friday, going 0-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Recalled from Reno

    The Diamondbacks recalled Smith from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Smith has been at Triple-A since the beginning of the season and has slashed .298/.417/.456 with 14 RBI across 72 plate appearances. It's unlikely he sees consistent playing time while in the majors. Jace Peterson was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes season debut

    Smith entered Friday's game as a pinch hitter and finished the game in right field. He went 0-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored in a 17-1 win over San Francisco.

    The Diamondbacks recalled Smith from Triple-A Reno on Friday after designating Jace Peterson for assignment. Smith, a first-round pick in 2017, spent parts of the previous four seasons in the majors. During that time, prospects Corbin Carroll and Alek Thomas relegated him to part-time work. Smith will serve as a left-handed bat off the bench while providing occasional breaks for the team's regular outfielders.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to minors

    The Diamondbacks optioned Smith to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Smith didn't hit much this spring and had minor-league options remaining, so he finds himself on the outside looking in for an Opening Day roster spot. The 28-year-old should play regularly at Reno between first base and the outfield.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Filling in at first base

    Smith started at first base and went 0-for-2 with a walk in Sunday's spring game against the Brewers.

    Smith started at first for the second time in the last three games, as the Diamondbacks get by without Christian Walker (hand), who could return Tuesday. Smith, who played partial seasons at the major-league level in 2022 and 2023, could be in for a similar role in 2024. He was left off the latest projected roster assembled by Steve Gilbert of MLB.com. His most logical path to the Opening Day roster would be as a backup at first base, but Arizona may prefer a utility player, like Kevin Newman, Jace Peterson (wrist) or Emmanuel Rivera to cover there when Walker needs a breather. Smith is 3-for-13 with two RBI through five Cactus League games.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Included on wild-card roster

    Smith is on the roster for the Diamondbacks' NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Brewers.

    Smith slashed just .188/.317/.325 across 228 major-league plate appearances during the 2023 regular season, but he'll give the Diamondbacks a bit of extra left-handed thump off the bench in their best-of-three series versus Milwaukee. Arizona is carrying 14 position players and 12 pitchers for the first round of the postseason.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to Triple-A

    Smith was optioned Tuesday to Triple-A Reno, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

    Smith went 1-for-7 with three walks and two strikeouts during his 11-day stay with the Diamondbacks and is slashing just .188/.317/.325 across 228 total major-league plate appearances this year. Jake McCarthy has been recalled from Reno in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Makes first start since call-up

    Smith started at first base and went 0-for-2 in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Baltimore.

    Smith made his first start since the Diamondbacks recalled him for the September roster expansion. Both plate appearances came against right-hander Jack Flaherty, and Smith was removed for a pinch hitter once a lefty reliever entered. The lefty-swinging Smith could spot in against right-handers at times during the final month, but he's not part of a platoon situation where fantasy managers could count on him being in a starting lineup.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks recalled Smith from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Smith is slashing .297/.419/.457 with 32 RBI since being optioned to Triple-A at the end of June and will now rejoin the active roster as it expands from 26 to 28 players. Smith will provide Arizona with a bench bat down the stretch and is capable of playing in the outfield and at first base.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Optioned to Triple-A

    Smith was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Smith will head to Triple-A in the midst of a cold spell at the plate, having batted .130 (9-for-69) with two homers, eight RBI, eight runs scored and 16 strikeouts over 69 at-bats in June. He'll head to Reno and look to get right while Kyle Lewis was called up to replace Smith on the major-league roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Hits the skids

    Smith went 0-for-5 in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Giants.

    Smith's average dropped to .196 following the game. His last hit came June 17, and he's 3-for-29 (.107) over his last 10 games. Smith, who has managed to grind out eight walks during the slump, is batting just .169 since the beginning of May.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: On bench again

    Smith is not in Thursday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Smith started against righties for four straight games from June 15-18, but he has sat against three of the last four righties Arizona has faced, so it would seem he is falling into a bench role. Alek Thomas, whose playing time is trending up, gets the start in the outfield while Ketel Marte gets the nod at designated hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Not in lineup Tuesday

    Smith is absent from the lineup Tuesday versus the Brewers.

    Corbin Carroll, Alek Thomas and Jake McCarthy will start across the outfield while Lourdes Gurriel takes a turn as the Diamondbacks' designated hitter. Smith had a decent showing over the weekend against Cleveland but is slashing just .161/.266/.268 in 65 plate appearances since the beginning of June.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Sitting Monday

    Smith is not in the starting lineup Monday versus the Brewers.

    Smith will get a breather after he went 3-for-10 with an RBI and a run scored over the three-game series with Cleveland. Jake McCarthy will slide over to right field while Alek Thomas draws the start in center and bats eighth in the opener in Milwaukee.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Dropped to sixth

    Smith batted sixth and went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Guardians.

    A day after he was given a vote of confidence as a leadoff hitter from manager Torey Lovullo, Smith was dropped to the six hole Saturday. Since May 27, he'd been the primary leadoff batter against right-handers but was dropped against Cleveland righty Shane Bieber. Smith's numbers atop the order (.148/.258/.333) don't support his continued use in that role, but Lovullo sounded optimistic when speaking with Eli McKown of the Arizona Republic on Friday. Geraldo Perdomo moved from the lower third of the order and hit leadoff Saturday.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Halts skid

    Smith went 1-for-3 with two walks and an RBI in Friday's 5-1 win over the Guardians.

    Smith entered the game on an 0-for-10 run, which expanded to 0-for-12 before his sixth-inning single plated a run. He batted leadoff once again, which he's regularly done since May 27, and received a vote of confidence in that role from manager Torey Lovullo prior to Friday's game, Eli McKown of Arizona Republic reports. "I don't want to run from the success that he's had," Lovullo said pregame. "I know that he's very capable of getting a great run." Despite the manager's confidence, Smith is batting just .148/.248/.221 from the leadoff spot.

  • Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Homers in win

    Smith went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

    Smith gave the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead with his two-run shot off Joey Wentz. It's his seventh homer of the season and his first against a lefty. Smith had been stuck in a 3-for-29 (.103) slump coming into Sunday's contest. He's now slashing .209./316/.385 with 27 RBI and 23 runs scored through 172 plate appearances this season while mostly platooning against right-handing pitching.
