Dwight Smith starting in left for Blue Jays Saturday

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Dwight Smith is starting in left field and batting seventh against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

What It Means:

Steve Pearce recently returned from the disabled list, so the Jays will give him a day off to get up to speed. Smith was called up earlier this week, and the Jays will continue to use him to keep their outfielders fresh.

Toronto batters have the sixth-highest implied total (5.38 runs) on the day, with a great park factor at home (1.043) and a strikeout-averse Mike Pelfrey opposing them (13.9 percent; third-lowest rate).
