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, )

News: Smith went 2-for-4 with a triple, a double, three RBI, and two runs scored in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh. Impact: One day after sitting out against left-hander Francisco Liriano, Smith was back in the third spot in the order against Charlie Morton, and he came up huge for the Padres. Smith's bases-clearing triple in the fifth inning put San Diego ahead for good. He's now slashing .291/.386/.508 this season.(RotoWire, )
