Dominic Smith and the Washington Nationals have agreed to a one-year contract.
Smith is likely going to play first base on a rebuilding Nationals team. Smith struggled with the Mets last season, slashing .194/.276/.284 with 17 runs batted in over 58 games. The Nationals will likely give Smith plenty of opportunities to re-find his power stroke in 2023.
Dominic Smith was placed on the 10-day IL Thursday with right ankle inflammation.
Smith is slashing .194/.276/.284 with 17 RBIs in 58 games this season. The 27-year-old is definitely not having the type of season he was hoping for and the ankle inflammation is another setback this season. Smith is eligible to return on July 27th if fully healthy.
Dominic Smith was recalled from Triple-A on Monday with Seth Lugo being placed on the paternity list.
Smith didn't play much and struggled when he did in the majors this season, but he has slashed .266/.347/.438 thus far in Triple-A in 15 games. His stay with the Mets may be short, and his upside isn't particularly high, so there's no need to add him in anything other than deep NL-only formats.
The New York Mets optioned Dominic Smith to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday. In a corresponding move, the Mets recalled pitcher Adonis Medina.
The Mets needed another bullpen arm with Drew Smith sidelined with a pinky injury. Dominic Smith has struggled to start the season, batting .186, no home runs, and 14 RBIs. He will likely get consistent at-bats in Triple-A and could return when the team’s bullpen is fully healthy.
Dominic Smith went 2-for-5 with a triple, a two-RBI single and a run scored in Tuesday's 13-12 loss to the Giants.
Smith has really struggled at the plate to start 2022, hitting .203 with an OPS of .559 through 79 at-bats this year. Despite playing better as of late, the outfielder should not be considered in fantasy due to his inconsistent production.
