News: Smith is out of the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Impact: Abraham Almonte will move over to left field with Smith sitting, as usual, against a lefty starter (Vidal Nuno). Smith is 11-for-39 (.282 average) against southpaws this season but is just a .208/.285/.320 career hitter against lefties.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith boasts a .326/.434/.535 line with one home run, one triple, four doubles, seven RBI, five runs, and an 8:6 BB:K in 43 at-bats in August. Impact: Smith has only failed to tally a hit in two of 10 appearances, but the additional extra-base hits this month have boosted his post-All-Star break slash line to a robust .337/.417/.506. Because all of his nods come against right-handed starters, he remains a valuable piece to fantasy outfields. However, just 38 of his 341 at-bats in 2014 have occurred against southpaws, so expect him to yield left field to Tommy Medica in such a situation, if recent trends are any indication.(RotoWire, )
