26-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Baltimore Orioles
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Smith's capped by being a defensive liability with limited power and speed. He spent 2018 crossing the border between Toronto and Triple-A Buffalo multiple times. With the Blue Jays, Smith posted a .262/.347/.477 slash line in 75 plate appearances, clubbing a pair of homers with no steals. Smith ran more with the Bisons, swiping nine bags in 12 tries while recording a .268/.358/.413 line on the farm. With the standard small-sample-size warnings, the lefty-swinging Smith has posted a .915 OPS facing right-handers in 80 MLB appearances. He'll enter the spring looking to win a roster spot as a reserve outfielder, and won't be fantasy relevant unless an injury opens up regular playing time, likely on the strong side of a platoon.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Smith has shown an ability to draw walks and make consistent contact throughout his time in the minors, but he's limited defensively to the outfield corners and there simply is not enough thump in his bat for him to profile as a regular corner guy at the big-league level. He has maxed out at 15 homers in a season on the farm and has never posted an ISO above .169. He turned in a healthy .370/.414/.444 line in his first cup of coffee in the majors, but it was a minuscule sample (29 plate appearances) and those numbers were driven by a ridiculous .588 BABIP. His numbers over a larger body of work at Triple-A were nothing to write home about, although he did have a .350 OBP thanks to a 10.5 percent walk rate. The fact that he was not brought back in September despite being on the 40-man roster speaks to his standing on the organizational depth chart.
