Smith hit just his second home run of the season in the A's win as he helped the team shake out of their offensive funk as of lately. The A's third basemen should not be rostered as he is batting just .195 with an OPS of .579 with 11 RBI so far this season.
Oakland Athletics 3B Kevin Smith went 1-for-5 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting a 2-run RBI double, and striking out twice in the A's 9-0 win over the Tigers.
As for most of the A's team Smith should remain on the waivers for the time being as he is batting just .217. Through 23 games this year the third basemen has just one home run and nine RBI's with a low OPS of .627 which are the main reasons as to why he should not be rostered.

Unfortunately for the third basemen his big day was tarnished by the A's relievers blowing the four-run lead as they lost in extra innings.
