Carson Smith undergoes season-ending shoulder surgery

Carson Smith will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Wednesday, Rob Bradford of reports.

Fantasy Impact

Smith came into the season finally healthy and was a good add in fantasy leagues with the hold category. Unfortunately, Smith hurt his shoulder in the dugout in May and now will have another lost season. Fantasy owners should be moving on from Smith.

Carson Smith goes on DL with shoulder injury

Carson Smith was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a right shoulder subluxation, Rob Bradford of reports. Smith injured his arm after throwing his glove in the dugout following his outing against the Athletics on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Early reports are that Smith could be out awhile with this shoulder injury. The 28-year-old reliever was a good player to own in fantasy leagues with holds. But with this extended absence there is no need to stash him.

Carson Smith picks up the loss on Opening Day

Carson Smith (0-1) walked the first batter faced and allowed two runs on two hits while striking out one in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

The Red Sox cruised through the first seven innings but things fell apart when Smith and fellow reliever Joe Kelly came in. Smith should have a major role this year and fantasy owners should not panic after one outing. The 28-year-old reliever should be a good source of holds and strikeouts this season.

Carson Smith picks up the save in win over Orioles

Carson Smith threw a clean 11th inning to earn his first save of the season Monday as the Red Sox defeated the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

Smith was in the right place at the right time to earn the save for the Red Sox. With the extra inning game depleting the bullpen the team looked to Smith for the save. Smith will not likely see another chance but is definitely a pitcher to look at in leagues that have the holds category.

Carson Smith to face live hitters on Tuesday

Carson Smith (elbow) will face live hitters next Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. This will mark the first time Smith will face live hitters since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May.

Fantasy Impact

The Red Sox are hoping for a return of mid-June for Smith. He will be a boost to the bullpen and while he won't be able to supplant current closer Craig Kimbrel he will be in a position to acquire holds. He is a good add in any fantasy leagues that value the holds category.
