RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Chris Smith.

2017

After going undrafted, Smith began his professional career in the independent Frontier League. He eventually signed with the Yankees and pitched in their system for parts of two seasons before being released. The Jays then signed him to a minor league deal midway through the 2015 season. A hard-throwing righty, Smith dominated the minors last season before getting called up in September. Over 43 appearances at Double-A New Hampshire, Smith dealt 57 innings in relief and went 15-for-17 in save chances. He managed an impressive 1.89 ERA and 1.14 WHIP while notching a ridiculous 76 strikeouts and holding opposing hitters to a paltry .208 BAA. He experienced similar success in limited action (four games) with Triple-A Buffalo. Smith has yet to make his MLB debut, but he's not far off, and the 28-year-old will get a fair shot to crack the Opening Day roster in 2017.
