It's time to rent another moving van for Meridian native Jason Smith. The infielder was claimed off waivers by the Kansas City Royals. This will be the third team that the former Meridian Community College standout has played for this season.
The left-handed hitter began the year north of the border with the Blue Jays, where he batted .212 in 27 games. In May, he was picked up by Arizona but only played 2 games before going on the disabled list with a burst appendix.
Smith will join the Royals Friday in Cleveland.
