2017

2016

Elite speed is Smith's calling card and that tool was on full display once again last season, as he swiped 57 bases in 70 attempts between Double-A and Triple-A after totaling 88 steals in 2014 and 64 in 2013. He coupled that speed with a strong approach and good contact skills, hitting above .300 with for a second straight season with a career-low 14.3% strikeout rate. Power will never be a big part of the package with Smith, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound center fielder, but he has the potential to be a solid three-category fantasy contributor in time. Offseason trade acquisition Ender Inciarte appears likely to open the year in center field for the big club, but Smith could push Inciarte to left by midseason if he gets off to a strong start while possibly earning a spot at or near the top of the Atlanta batting order.
