Smith took longer than expected to return to the Boston bullpen following 2016 Tommy John surgery, but he worked through setbacks and made his season debut in September. During the final month of the season, Smith made eight appearances and logged a total of 6.2 innings, finishing with one earned run allowed and a 7:2 K:BB. Most importantly, his velocity wasn't far from his pre-surgery levels, as he averaged 92.0 mph on his fastball, 84.6 on his slider, and 88.0 on his changeup, and he was generating outs on the ground at a clip above 60 percent again. At his best in 2015 with the Mariners, Smith was a 90-strikeout reliever with good ratios, and if he's able to use his slider as often as he did before going under the knife, it's reasonable to think that he'll be part of the improved late-inning combination the Red Sox use to get the ball to Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning this season.
