This hasn't been a good week for Mudcats' pitcher Jordan Smith. He was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Huntsville Stars after arguing about a check swing call, and now he's been placed on the seven-day disabled list retroactive to April 24.
Meanwhile right-hander Justin Mallett has been assigned to the Mudcats from Triple-A Louisville. In the last 10 games for the Bats, Mallett has pitched two innings, striking out two and allowing two hits.
