Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said he hopes 1B Justin Smoak is still the team's first baseman of the future but indicated that this is an important time for Smoak in terms of his play. "I hope so. But any player has to go out and perform. He's had good months. He's had months that haven't been as good. This is an important time for him right now. We'll see," Zduriencik said.
