Mariners | Justin Smoak: 1B my job to lose

Seattle Mariners 1B Justin Smoak said first base is still his job to lose this year, but he'll be competing with 1Bs Logan Morrison and Corey Hart for the job. Smoak's $3.65 million option for the 2015 season will be guaranteed if he has 525 plate appearances this season. Manager Lloyd McClendon wants Smoak to focus on being a complete hitter this year, not a home run hitter. "He's going to play first base and DH a little bit," McClendon said. "One thing I know is the manager doesn't make out the lineup."
