Smith, a 32-year-old righty, has been OK this year. He’s posted a 3.82 ERA, 6.0 K/9, 3.1 BB/9, 0.96 HR/9, and 54.8% groundball rate in 37 2/3 innings. Smith has about $1.8MM remaining on his contract, after which he’ll be eligible for free agency. Unlike years past, the sidearming Smith has not been great against right-handed hitters in 2016.
