One of last year's best sources of cheap speed, Smith stole the third-most bases (40) besides Whit Merrifield and Trea Turner. Among the 11 players with at least 30 steals, he was one of four (Merrifield, Mookie Betts, and Lorenzo Cain) to bat above .300 (.296). As a two-category contributor, he needs that average to stick, but a .249 xBA and Steamer's .263 projection aren't so optimistic. Yet the speed is legitimate, and the Mariners could slot him into the leadoff role. He could be a more competent Billy Hamilton.

Mallex Smith (arm) shut down for "a couple of weeks" with muscle issue

Mallex Smith (arm) is dealing with a muscle issue in his right arm and will not throw or swing a bat for several weeks.

Fantasy Impact

It does not sound like the Mariners expect Smith to miss any regular season games but arm problems can never be taken for granted. Any missed time in spring training will open up opportunity for someone else to get reps in center field, but at this point it is too early to worry about Smith being displaced for real games.
