Smith out of Orioles lineup

Seth Smith is out of the Orioles lineup tonight after being hit yesterday on his left cheek by a ball he fouled off the plate.

Smith took some fly balls from first base coach Wayne Kirby earlier today while the tarp covered the infield. The swelling affected his vision yesterday.
