HOUSTON (AP) — Manager Dusty Baker doesn’t expect reliever Joe Smith to play for the Houston Astros this season. Smith has not reported to camp because of what general manager James Click called concerns for the safety of his family. Smith was placed on the restricted list Tuesday night, but he has not said publicly if he is opting out of the season, which starts for the Astros on July 24.
