According to, referee Bill Miller, who checked Smith’s glove, said, “I don’t know exactly what it is,” but said, “It was definitely sticky.” But Smith said, “My hands weren’t sticky and I had no problems. The main problem with the foreign substance test is that each referee has a very different judgment,” he said. “A suspension of 10 games is the worst for the team.”

Smith appeared in 26 games this year and recorded an ERA of 4.18 with 3 wins, 2 losses, 2 saves and 8 holds. Teammate Max Scherzer was also suspended for 10 games for the same reason in April.
