$Signed a minor league contract with the A's in November 2015.
Endures rough 2017
POakland Athletics  
October 3, 2017
Smith, who wrapped up his 2017 campaign with 1.2 scoreless innings in last Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Rangers, generated an 0-4 record, 6.79 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 55.2 innings in 2017.
ANALYSIS
The 36-year-old right-hander might be nearing the end of the line if his 2017 performance is any indication. Smith gave up multiple earned runs in 10 of 14 appearances, including eight straight at one point. Smith's ERA was his highest since his rookie 2008 campaign, while his 5.0 K/9 and 2.6 HR/9 were career-worst figures. Moreover, the veteran's numbers could have been even more unsightly, considering he had the benefit of a .244 BABIP allowed.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2010
2004
Smith appeared in 35 games for Milwaukee with a 4.11 ERA that could have been a lot worse. He allowed 11 home runs in just 46 innings while walking 19 batters. The Brewers will take a look at him as a bullpen arm in spring training, but he's likely ticketed for Triple-A Nashville again this season.
Smith, Boston's fourth-round pick in 2002, was 5-2 with a 3.75 ERA and 85 strikeouts in 74 innings at Double-A Portland before a torn labrum ended his season. His status for next spring is in doubt as a result.
