And keep Smoak's splits in mind.
He handles right handed pitching fine.
But he cannot currently deal with left handed pitching.
Bench him against lefties, play him against righties.
Smoak is currently not an everyday starting caliber fantasy baseball player, even in the 16-team mixed H2H league that I am in. But I still have him. He just usually occupies my bench currently. A number of things point towards remaining patient. Including his BABIP, as has been mentioned.
I'm still seeking advice on this issue of mine, BTW, somewhat Smoak related:viewtopic.php?t=412193
