  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: On bench against lefty

    Joey Meneses will start at first base and Riley Adams is serving as the Nationals' designated hitter with left-hander Jose Quintana taking the mound for New York.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: On bench against righty

    Smith is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Most of the lefty-hitting Smith's absences from the lineup typically come against left-handed pitching, but he'll hit the bench Wednesday against right-hander Chris Bassitt. With Smith taking a seat after starting in each of the past four games, Joey Meneses will serve as the Nationals' first baseman while Keibert Ruiz gets a day off behind the plate and settles in as the team's designated hitter.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Sitting versus lefty Friday

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Belts sixth homer

    Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Washington managed only three hits against a trio of New York pitchers, and Smith's ninth-inning solo shot accounted for the team's only run of the game. The long ball was the first for Smith since the All-Star break, though he's posted a .279 batting average over 111 at-bats during that span. Despite that decent mark, Smith doesn't produce enough to be a reliable fantasy asset -- he has just six homers, 34 RBI and one stolen base over 123 contests on the campaign.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Taking seat Friday

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Clubs fifth homer

    Smith went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

    The first baseman will carry some momentum into the All-Star break after taking Dane Dunning deep in the fifth inning. Smith has only five homers on the season, but three of them have come in his last 13 games, a stretch in which he's slashing .295/.340/.523. On the downside, all three long balls came with the bases empty and he has no other RBI during that time, but if the 29-year-old stays hot in the second half, his production should catch up.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Out against lefty

    Smith isn't in the Nationals' lineup Saturday against Texas, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    With southpaw Andrew Heaney starting on the mound for Texas, the lefty-hitting Smith will stay put in Washington's dugout to begin the game. Joey Meneses will fill in at first base while Smith sits, moving Jeimer Candelario into the DH spot while Ildemaro Vargas start at third base.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Takes seat Thursday

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Continues to heat up

    Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 19-4 loss to the Phillies.

    The 28-year-old gave the Nationals a brief lead in the top of the second inning when he took Zack Wheeler deep, but the lead didn't last long in the rout. Smith only has four homers on the season, but two of them have come in the last five games, a stretch in which he's gone 8-for-20 (.400). If he can continue to string together hits and re-discover a power stroke, he could put himself on the mixed-league radar in the second half, but he has a lot left to prove -- since the end of the 2020 campaign, Smith has managed just a .243/.309/.343 slash line with 15 homers in 281 games.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Three hits in Friday's win

    Smith went 3-for-4 in Friday's win over the Phillies.

    All the Nationals' offense came on a two-run homer by Stone Garrett in a 2-1 victory, but Smith did his best to keep the line moving. The first baseman has gone 7-for-16 (.438) over the last four games, but his .265/.333/.331 slash line on the season with only three homers and 18 RBI in 77 contests gives him little fantasy value even in deeper formats despite his everyday role.

  • Nationals' Dominic Smith: Swats third homer

    Smith went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

    The first baseman took Luis Castillo deep in the second inning as part of an early offensive surge for the Nats that fizzled out. Consistency remains an issue for Smith -- Monday's performance snapped a 3-for-30 slump over his prior eight games that featured zero RBI or runs. On the season, the 28-year-old is slashing a tepid .259/.331/.325 with only three homers and 18 RBI in 74 contests.
