Career and statistics for Dwight Smith Jr.

Smith Jr. was selected in the MLB draft in 2011, but he didn’t make his debut until 2017.

He began his career in baseball with the Bluefield BlueJays before joining the Vancouver Canadians the following season.

The 29-year-old hit a combined.212 over that span with four home runs and 29 RBI.

After that, he joined with the Lansing Lugnuts, where he played 109 games and batted.284 with seven home runs, 48 RBI, and 25 stolen bases.

Smith Jr. was thus promoted to the High A Dunedin Blue Jays for the 2014 season after a strong 2013.

On April 6, 2014, Dwight struck out against Cole Hamels at this location for his first career home run.

The Georgia native changed teams once more after the season was over and ended up playing for the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League.

Career in MLB

Dwight began his MLB career on May 18, 2017, following six arduous years of minor league development.

However, he only spent two seasons with the Blue Jays before being dealt to the Baltimore Orioles on March 9, 2019.

Smith Jr. only participated in 47 games during the course of the two seasons, which was unacceptable.

Dwight and the Blue Jays agreed it would be better to part ways as a result.

Consequently, on March 9, 2019, the 29-year-old started a new chapter in his career by playing for his new team, the Baltimore Orioles, in left field as a starter.

After that, Smith Jr. participated in 101 games for the team until suffering an injury that forced him to miss the entire season.

He also blasted the first grand slam of his career off of Drew Pomeranz as the Orioles defeated the San Francisco Giants 9-6.

Dwight yet managed to bat.241 with 13 home runs and 53 RBI.

Because he did so well in his debut season as a starter, everyone anticipated that the Georgia native will perform even better in 2020.

Unfortunately, the global Corona Virus epidemic has delayed the start of the 2020 season (COVID-19).

He played in just 21 games for the 2020 campaign, batting.222/.306/.365 with six runs batted in over 72 plate appearances.

Additionally, he attained free agency in November 2020.

He got a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds organization after the Orioles.

He was transferred to the Triple-A Louisville Bats for the 2021 campaign.

With the Louisville Bats, he appeared in 36 games, scoring.220/.327/.283 with 1 home run and 17 RBI.

On June 20, 2021, he was subsequently released.

Even if cheering for sportsmen helps us fans decompress and have fun, we must never forget that athletes are also people.

They, therefore, require the same attention and defense against this dangerous illness.

We would like to wish Dwight and his family health and hope that they all remain healthy in these historic times.
