Latest Update Seth Smith is not in the Padres' starting lineup Wednesday. Wed Sep, 24, 06:00 PM
Possesses a sweet swing and a superb overall approach at the plate, showing excellent patience, a keen batting eye and power. Is athletic, a clutch RBI producer (even as a pinch-hitter) and tough out overall.
Flaws: : Like most lefties, he's not nearly as good a hitter against left-handed pitching as he is against righties. In fact, he struggles against them. Is a somewhat limited defender, as well. Is prone to hitting slumps.
In typical fashion, Smith is sitting against a left-hander. It just so happens that the Padres are facing a left-hander for the third-straight game. He'll be available off the bench.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Padres sit Smith whenever the face a left handed starting pitcher and guess what? They are facing a left handed starting pitcher tonight. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Smith was ruled out of tonight's game and will reportedly also miss tomorrows game with a hamstring injury.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
No injury has been reported so this is just a regular day off for the Padres' outfielder. He has started the last four games, but has only collected one hit in his last 17 at bats during that stretch. Smith is hitting .270 on the year with 12 long balls and 43 RBIs.Analyst: Colby Conway
