Description: San Diego right fielder Seth Smith hit a home run for the second straight game Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Smith had a game-tying pinch-hit shot off Brian Wilson in the eighth inning Sunday night, and he went deep off Zack Greinke Tuesday. The 31-year-old had 14-17 HRs in every season from 2009-12 but hit just eight in 117 games with Oakland last year.
 
10/7/2013 10:55:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith is a career 6-for-17 (.353) with two home runs and a 1.186 OPS against Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez.
Insight: Smith didn't do much this season batting .253 with eight homers and 40 RBI in 368 at-bats, but this is a favorable matchup. He went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 1-0 victory over the Tigers.
 
8/7/2013 9:52:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith is a career 6-for-14 (.429) with three home runs and a 1.571 OPS against Reds starter Homer Bailey.
Insight: Since leaving the thin Colorado air, Smith has done little to excite fantasy owners. He's batting .243 with a .728 OPS in 214 games with the A's, but this is a favorable matchup.
 
8/3/2013 9:42:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith is a career 2-for-15 (.133) against Texas starter Matt Garza with five strikeouts.
Insight: Since leaving the thin Colorado air, Smith has done little to excite fantasy owners. He's batting .244 with a .729 OPS in 213 games with the A's. Look elsewhere for outfield help.
 
Cold7/3/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith is a career 1-for-11 (.091) against Cubs right-hander Matt Garza with five strikeouts.
Insight: Smith has been a solid DH for the A's, who despite going 3-for-15 over the past four games is batting .278 with six homers, 32 RBI and 34 runs, but Wednesday is an unfavorable matchup to be avoided.
 
Hot6/26/2013 9:28:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith "owns" Cincinnati starter Homer Bailey, batting .545 with three home runs and a 2.000 OPS in 11 at-bats.
Insight: Smith is currently on an eight-game winning streak, batting .394 over the span. Hot hitter plus favorable matchup equals must start.
 
6/13/2013 10:41:00 AM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith went 1-for-1 with four walks Wednesday against New York to snap out of a 0-for-13 slump, and he has a favorable matchup Thursday.
Insight: Smith will face Hiroki Kuroda Thursday. The DH is 9-for-24 (.375) with two RBI and four walks against Kuroda.
 
Hot4/23/2013 10:22:00 PM
Description: Oakland DH Seth Smith went 1-for-4 Tuesday, but his one hit was a three-run homer. He also walked and scored two runs.
Insight: Smith has six doubles, two homers, 10 RBIs and a 10/8 K/BB in 53 at-bats. Smith only hit .157 in 70 at-bats against lefties last season, but he is 8-for-13 (.615) against them this year and is batting .377 overall.
 
Hot4/14/2013 1:25:00 PM
Description: A's left fielder Seth Smith owns Anibal Sanchez. In 13 previous at bats, Smith has collected six hits against the Tigers righthander.
Insight: Two of the six hits have gone for home runs. If Smith had enough at bats to qualify, he'd lead the majors in batting average (.500 in 26 at bats).
 
2/16/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Oakland outfielder Seth Smith has been working out at first base in spring training.
Insight: Smith smacked 14 homers in 125 games as a platoon player last season and has hit between 14-17 homers in each of the last four seasons despite limited at-bats. Playing an additional position could get him a few more at-bats and with a lifetime .815 OPS he could become a viable fantasy option.
 
1/17/2013 8:48:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Seth Smith and the A's were able to avoid arbitration by coming to terms on a new one-year contract.
Insight: Smith smacked 14 homers in 125 games as a platoon player last season. Now that Jonny Gomes is with the Red Sox, he should begin to see a bit more playing time.
 
10/11/2012 10:30:00 AM
Description: DH Seth Smith got the A's rally started by crushing a game-tying two-run double Wednesday in a comeback win over the Tigers.
Insight: Smith came around to score the game-winning run three batters later on a Coco Crisp RBI single. He's now 2-for-8 in the series with a home run and three RBI.
 
10/9/2012 9:38:00 AM
Description: Oakland outfielder Seth Smith is a stunning .462 hitter (6-for-13) against Detroit Game 3 starter Anibal Sanchez with a pair of homers and a 1.500 OPS.
Insight: Smith has been held hitless in five at-bats over the first two games of the ALDS, but has a favorable matchup on Tuesday.
 
9/23/2012 10:15:00 AM
Description: Make sure Oakland outfielder Seth Smith is in your lineup Sunday versus New York. Smith enters today's action with a .429 career average against Yankees righthander Hiroki Kuroda.
Insight: Smith went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's heartbreaking extra innings loss. Pencil him in for another couple of hits Sunday against Kuroda (14-10, 3.26 ERA).
 
9/20/2012 10:18:00 AM
Description: A's left fielder Seth Smith should be a strong fantasy play Thursday against the Tigers. He's a .455 lifetime hitter against Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez.
Insight: Smith (.244, 13 HR, 46 RBI) has been a platoon player for Oakland most of the season but we're betting manager Bob Melvin will have him in the lineup Thursday with Sanchez pitching.
 
9/3/2012 3:41:00 PM
Description: Oakland outfielder Seth Smith will have the day off Monday against the Angels.
Insight: Smith is coming off of a strong game Sunday versus Boston (2-for-3, HR, 2 RBI). In 91 at bats since the All-Star break, Smith is hitting .242 with five jacks and 17 RBI.
 
8/31/2012 9:03:00 PM
Description: A's left fielder Seth Smith will be on the sidelines for Friday's series opener versus Boston.
Insight: The next time Smith (.244, 12 HR, 42 RBI) plays he'll have a chance to increase his current hitting streak to seven games.
 
8/3/2012 12:16:00 PM
Description: Oakland outfielder Seth Smith is expected to miss Friday's game against Toronto with a strained left hamstring.
Insight: Smith put up some fantasy worthy numbers early on, but his .193 batting average since the break should have him firmly planted on your bench.
 
7/13/2012 7:29:00 PM
Description: Oakland outfielder Seth Smith will be on the sidelines when the A's begin the second half Friday night against the Twins.
Insight: Smith's numbers for the first half were pretty pedestrian (.249, 8 HRs, 27 RBIs). With Smith getting the night off, Jonny Gomes (.231, 8 HRs, 21 RBIs) will get the start in left field for the Athletics.
 
7/3/2012 9:57:00 PM
Description: A's outfielder Seth Smith will be watching Tuesday night's game against the Red Sox from the sidelines.
Insight: Smith's last three hits have all gone for extra bases. He's batting .254 with eight homers and 27 RBIs in 72 games this season.
