SEATTLE, Wash. -- Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager Jack Zduriencik announced today that first baseman Justin Smoak, who has been on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured nose since Aug. 13, will begin his rehabilitation assignment tonight at AAA Tacoma.

Smoak, 24, was hit in the face by a bad-hop grounder in the second inning of the August 13 game vs. the Boston Red Sox. X-rays revealed a non-displaced fracture of the nose. A CT scan also showed a non-displaced (hairline) fracture of the maxilla bone in his left cheek.

Smoak has appeared in a career-high 101 games with the Mariners batting .220 (78x354) with 30 runs scored, 23 doubles, 12 home runs and 40 RBI. Smoak also missed seven games (Aug. 3-10) with a sore right thumb.
