The teams finalized the trade on Tuesday. Smith was left without a spot in the Padres outfield after San Diego's makeover that included the acquisitions of Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and Wil Myers.
Analysis: But Smith should have a significant role in Seattle, likely in an outfield platoon with Justin Ruggiano. The left-handed hitting Smith batted .266 with 12 homers and 48 RBIs last season. But against right-handed pitching, Smith hit .270 with all 12 of his home runs and an .815 on-base plus slugging percentage.
