Dominic Smith News
New York Mets outfielder Dominic Smith went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk in the Mets 7-0 win over the Reds on Wednesday afternoon. Smith, who has had a rough season, has been hitting consistently of late, showing signs of power as well. Over his last seven games, he is hitting .280/.379/.600 with two homers, six RBI, and four runs scored. His two home runs have come over his last three games. While his bat is heating up, and he is hitting for power, Smith makes for a sneaky DFS play when the Mets take on the Blue Jays beginning Friday at CitiField.
New York Mets outfielder Dominic Smith went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in the Mets 15-11 win over the Reds in 11 innings on Monday. Smith has had a rough season overall but has shown signs of consistent production at the plate recently. Over his last 15 games, he is hitting .291/.333/.582 with four homers, 10 RBI, and 13 runs scored. He is also 5-for-14 (.357) over the past three games with two doubles and a home run. If Smith can continue to string together a few more productive games, in line with his 2020 production, he may be worthy of starting in shallow leagues. He should, nevertheless, be rostered in most formats given his potential. This recent string of hitting could be a sign of things to come for Smith for the remainder of the season.
New York Mets outfielder Dominic Smith went 3-for-5 with a double against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday. He scored once and drove in a run. Despite an underwhelming .713 OPS on the season, there have been some signs of life for the lefty swinger. Smith has posted a .300/.345/.560 slash line over his last 15 games with three of his nine home runs in that span. Many fantasy managers may have lost faith in Smith, but he could still be a major contributor if he can regain his 2020 form, and is worthy of a bench spot on fantasy rosters at least.
First baseman/outfielder Dominic Smith broke out in 2020 by posting a .316/.377/.616 line, 10 home runs, 42 RBI, a 0.993 OPS, and a 1.7 WAR. He finished tied for second in the National League with 32 extra-base hits and second overall in the majors with 21 doubles. In addition, his .616 slugging percentage was fourth best in the National League. Smith's season was even more impressive considering the Mets utilized him in a part-time role for the first two weeks of the short season. His breakout was supported by metrics that included a 46.7% overall hard-hit rate, a 13.3% overall barrel rate, a 94.9 mph exit velocity on FB/LD, and an elite .304 xBA and .568 xSLG. In addition, the percentage of 100 mph fly balls Smith hit increased by 9.2% in 2020 and the average exit velocity on his top-5% hardest-hit balls in the air was 107.7 mph. These metrics all suggest Smith's increased contact and power was legitimate. The main question for Smith in 2021 will be playing time. If the NL implements the designated hitter, Smith should be locked in as a lineup regular for the Mets, either in left field, first base (when Pete Alonso is DH) or at DH. If, however, the NL opts out of the universal DH, Smith's playing time could be impacted. He would still likely start most days in left field but could find himself out of or removed from the lineup more frequently for defensive purposes. As a regular, Smith can potentially return 30-plus HR, and 80-90 RBI (with some slight regression in batting average) over the course of a full 162-game season for those drafting him around pick 91.
