RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Smith is yet another organizational soldier that got to make his major league debut with the Reds in 2015. Smith was drafted out of college back in 2010 and took a full season to advance each level, with him repeating Double-A and Triple-A in 2015 before he got his chance. Once he got the chance, the 27-year old predictably got hit pretty hard. Smith doesn't have an overpowering fastball, averaging just a tick under 90 mph, and consequently averaged 7.2 K/9 innings over his eight big league starts. He's off the 40-man roster for the Reds again, so his chances to make another impression will be slim.
