  • Dodgers' Will Smith: Knocks in three runs Tuesday

    Smith went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 victory versus Atlanta.

    Smith plated the game's first run with a single in the first inning and knocked in two more with a two-out double in the second. The 28-year-old had been in a mild slump coming into the contest, going 2-for-14 over his previous five games. As a whole, Smith has been among the league's most productive catchers on the campaign, slashing .310/.406/.552 with seven homers, 25 runs, 27 RBI and a stolen base. He's also drawn 21 walks and struck out just 12 times over 143 plate appearances, giving him a 1.75 BB/K -- the top mark among all major-leaguers with at least 100 trips to the dish.

  • Dodgers' Will Smith: Gets maintenance day

    Smith is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

  • Dodgers' Will Smith: Registers steal in win

    Smith went 0-for-1 with three walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Padres.

    Smith was effective despite not recording a hit for just the third time in his last nine games. The steal was Smith's first of the season, and he's never swiped more than three bags in a campaign, so he shouldn't be expected to run much. The catcher is slashing a solid .294/.400/.529 with four homers, 15 RBI, 17 runs scored and four doubles through 85 plate appearances.
