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

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....
