Though it was an off-day, the Dodgers were still active. With Austin Barnes off the Injured List, LA sent catcher Will Smith back down to the minors.
Will Smith likely played his last game before being sent down today told me his biggest takeaway from his first time in big leagues “Confident now, I know I can play here, I know it’s where I belong, but it’s what the team decides...can’t control that.”— David Vassegh (@THEREAL_DV) June 6, 2019
During his short tenure here, Smith hit .286 along with two homers, including a dramatic walk-off win over the Phillies.
Will Smith certainly isn’t pouting about the situation. Chose to take a 7:30 a.m. flight out of Phoenix so he could be active for tonight’s game in OKC. https://t.co/J2EeQI8JTi— Alex Freedman (@azfreedman) June 6, 2019
