Athletics' Chad Smith: Resides on Triple-A IL
Triple-A Las Vegas placed Smith on its 7-day injured list Aug. 12 with an unspecified injury.
After the Athletics demoted him to Triple-A on July 25, Smith turned in seven scoreless appearances out of the Las Vegas bullpen before he was blown up for five earned runs on three hits and one walk while recording just one out in an Aug. 11 appearance versus Sacramento. He landed on the IL a day later and is without a clear timeline for a return.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Chad Smith: Takes second loss Sunday
Smith (1-2) took the loss against the Astros on Sunday, allowing an earned run on a solo home run over 1.2 innings. He also issued a walk and hit a batter.
Smith paid for his one mistake, a slider that Mauricio Dubon blasted 404 feet to left center for a go-ahead homer in the ninth. Smith has now allowed at least one earned run in five straight appearances, another rough patch in a season that's seen him pitch to a 6.59 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 1.3 HR/9 while also posting an unsightly 1.29 K/BB across 13.2 innings....

Athletics' Chad Smith: Back in big leagues
Smith's contract was selected by the Athletics on Saturday.
Smith owns a 6.75 ERA and 9:6 K:BB in 12 major-league innings this season, and his 7.88 ERA and 18.9 percent walk rate in 24 Triple-A frames doesn't paint an optimistic picture either. He'll presumably be limited to low-leverage situations and may not stick around once Angel Felipe returns from the paternity list.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Chad Smith: Called up Friday
Smith was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.
Smith will return to the big leagues after being sent down in late April, as Richard Lovelady (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday in a corresponding move.

Athletics' Chad Smith: Optioned to Triple-A
The Athletics optioned Smith to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.
With Drew Rucinski (hamstring) returning from the injured list Friday, Smith will serve as the roster casualty for the A's. The 27-year-old reliever holds a 6.30 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 10 innings this season, and he will likely need to make some adjustments in the minors before he can rejoin the MLB roster....

Athletics' Chad Smith: Saddled with loss Wednesday
Smith (1-1) took the loss against the Cubs on Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on two walks over two-thirds of an inning.
Smith's control was nowhere to be seen, as he found the strike zone on only five of his 16 pitches after initially inducing an inning-ending groundout from Nico Hoerner when first entering in the fifth. Smith opened the sixth with back-to-back walks before getting the hook and then watched Sam Moll eventually allow both runners to score. Smith has been up and down during his first four appearances, generating scoreless efforts in two of them while allowing a total of three earned runs over 3.1 innings in the other pair of outings....

Athletics' Chad Smith: Grabs win in debut
Smith (1-0), called up from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, notched the win against the Orioles on Wednesday, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed a hit and recorded three strikeouts.
Smith had pitched to a 2.25 ERA across four innings over three relief appearances with the Aviators, and he carried over the momentum into his Athletics regular-season debut. Smith benefitted from a favorable decision on his behalf by the official scorer, which declined to award Jeurys Familia -- who preceded Smith and was still in the game when the Athletics went ahead for good in the eighth -- the victory due to his brief and ineffective stint on the mound, per the Associated Press. Smith is likely to remain in lower-leverage scenarios during Domingo Acevedo's (back) stay on the injured list.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Chad Smith: Sent to Triple-A
The Athletics optioned Smith to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Smith got off to a rough start in the Cactus League, but the right-hander was solid to end the spring season to finish with a 3.12 ERA and 1.04 WHIP over 8.2 innings. The 27-year-old will likely be an up-and-down depth option for the Oakland bullpen throughout 2023.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Smith: Settling down after rough debut
Smith has pitched to a 5.79 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 7:3 K:BB across 4.2 innings in four Cactus League appearances.
Smith struggled out of the gate in his Athletics debut against the Diamondbacks on Feb. 25, getting tagged for three earned runs on three hits and a walk over one inning. However, the veteran right-hander has bounced back to fire 3.2 scoreless, one-hit frames. Smith has flashed some solid swing-and-miss stuff and a penchant for keeping the ball in the park throughout his minor-league career before getting his first MLB opportunity with the Rockies in 2022, during which control issues (7.5 BB/9 across 18 innings) helped lead to a bloated 7.50 ERA and 1.72 WHIP....

Athletics' Chad Smith: Traded to Oakland

Smith received his first taste of major-league action in 2022, recording a 7.50 ERA and 1.72 WHIP over 18 innings out of the bullpen. Smith has always been able to strike out batters at an exceptional rate, though he's often struggled to limit walks.... See More ... See Less
