JUSTIN SMOAK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mariners Rumors: Justin Smoak likely to be nontendered

The Seattle Mariners head into the 2014 off season after compiling a record of 87-75, third in the American League West. The Mariners were lead by an excellent pitching staff that was second in the Major Leagues in ERA. The offense was a mediocre 18th in the league in runs scored and need a boost for next season. With many questions to be answered with the roster, it appears outfielder...

Justin Smoak's incredible 9th-inning snag saves game for Mariners (VIDEO)

Infield catches don't come any better — or timelier — than Justin Smoak's incredible diving 9th-inning play Friday night.The Mariners first baseman — playing well off the bag with the bases loaded — goes airborne to snag Adian Beltre's screaming liner and then step on first base to turn a unassisted, game-ending double play and save a 6-5 lead against the Rangers...

My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners

Smoak Bomb There can be a lot said about Justin Smoak, and most of it ever since his arrival in Seattle has been negative. There has been lots of talk about him abandoning his switch hitter status, especially since his power numbers from the right side have been downright laughable. Well that all ends now! Well it at least quells the argument until next year at least. The Mariners...

Mariners rumors: Justin Smoak making it difficult for Seattle to re-sign Kendrys Morales

At the end of this season, the Seattle Mariners will have a decision to make.  Do they make Kendrys Morales a qualifying offer - likely in the $14 million per year range, or do they let him walk via free agency.  The Mariners desperately want to be competitive, but they have to do so on a budget far less than many AL competitors.  Fortunately, they now have a successful and productive...

Seattle Mariners’ Justin Smoak: Finally Putting It All Together

Justin Smoak is enjoying a fine 2013, can Mariners fans say he is putting it together? On July 9th, 2010, after a disappointing not even half of a season with the Seattle Mariners, Cliff Lee (and Mark Lowe) was dealt to the Texas Rangers in exchange for top Rangers prospect, Justin Smoak, Blake Beavan, Josh Lueke, and Matt Lawson. At the time, the Mariners were welcoming...

M’s fans…Is it time to get all aboard the Smoakamotive?

Timberrrr No everyone, your eyes are not deceiving you. The legend himself, Justin Smoak, has finally arrived. Technically he arrived to the Seattle Mariners in 2010. But anyone who lives near the state of Washington is likely aware of how he has done since joining the organization. Justin Smoak has shown glimpses of the highly touted prospect he was supposed to be, but never...

Why I still believe in the Mariners Justin Smoak

Don’t Give Up! As the offseason rumors rage on, it is no surprise that the Mariners are being talked about in nearly every offensive trade transaction out there. When looking where to place a power bat, it is only natural to be looking at first base. This makes sense as the position is the easiest to man defensively so the big, slow and strong guys like can still play ball. Prince...

Back in Texas, Smoak finds his power stroke

First baseman Justin Smoak has struggled offensively for the Seattle Mariners since being acquired in a trade in 2010. However, he's been right on target for the most part against the team that dealt him, the Texas Rangers. On Saturday, Smoak hit a two-run, game-deciding homer in the eighth inning. Sunday saw him strike again in the eighth inning, hitting a solo homer that...

In light of the hip injury suffered by the Seattle Mariners Mike Carp we've learned today via Twitter from M's Seattle Times beat writer Geoff Baker that the team has recalled 1b Justin Smoak from the AAA farmclub Tacoma Rainiers.

Mariners decide to go Smoakless

Perhaps the Justin Smoak ship will never arrive into port. The former #1 draft pick from South Carolina and the key ingredient of the Lee deal with the Rangers has never found a groove in the majors. And now at the age of 25, perhaps he never will. The Mariners just sent him down yesterday, their second most interesting transaction of the day. Eric Wedge is saying all the right...
