Justin Smoak update (UPDATE)

Jamey Newberg:

1. JUSTIN SMOAK, 1B, Triple-A Oklahoma City (number 1 last week)

Smoak has more multi-hit games than one-hit games since his early-July promotion to Oklahoma City, but not enough of either. He’s still trying to find a Triple-A groove, hitting .133/.243/.233, and though his walk total is impressive (eight in 60 at-bats), he’d gone six straight games without working a base on balls until drawing one last night.

UPDATE: And from BA’s not-so-hot sheet:

Yes, he’s still one of the best prospects in baseball, but Smoak is batting just .167/.263/.258 since being promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City earlier this month. Smoak, 22, went 3-for-6 last night, but those three singles only pushed him up to 6-for-30 with two extra-base hits and one walk in the last seven days.
