RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Matt Smith.

2008

Smith had season-ending Tommy John surgery on his left elbow in July. Smith showed some promise as a lefty specialist last season, but was ineffective (11BB/1K in four innings) in his brief stint with the Phillies in April. The Phillies received Smith, in 2006, as part of the Bobby Abreu giveaway deal. Smith pitched 12 scoreless innings in three stints with the Yankees and remained effective after joining the Phillies in late August, allowing two runs and striking out 12 in 8 2/3 innings, he is primarily a fastball-slider pitcher. It seems unlikely he'll be ready for the start of 2008.

2007

Smith is an interesting left-handed relief prospect who opened his career with 18.2 scoreless innings between New York and Philadelphia (he came over in the Bobby Abreu deal). He uses a low 90s fastball and good control to go after hitters, and will likely have a job with the Phillies in 2007.

2006

Smith converted to relief in 2005 and the results were impressive. He struck out 92 in 82 1/3 IP across two levels of the minors with a low-90s fastball and solid slider. His upside is somewhat limited at age 25, but Smith could be the lefty specialist the Yankees have been searching for.
