The White Sox brought in Welington Castillo in the offseason, leaving Smith as the likely odd-man out of the catching picture in Chicago. Omar Narvaez is a lefty bat and has displayed superior on-base skills, so he seems like the better complement to Castillo. Smith walked at just a 3.1 percent clip last season and hit for minimal power, with his 22.6 percent hard-hit rate ranking as the fourth-worst among semi-regular catchers (min. 250 plate appearances). The 29-year-old drives the ball into the ground at a high rate (57.3 percent career groundball rate) and he's a wash in terms of defense behind the plate. Unless the team opts to carry three catchers out of camp, Smith will likely be relegated to the minors to begin the year. An injury to either Castillo or Narvaez would open up time, but even then, he'd only be deserving of a $1 FAAB bid in two-catcher leagues.

  2. Kevan Smith 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The White Sox added Smith to their 40-man roster last offseason, but he spent all of 2015 at the Triple-A level. Smith, a former college quarterback, has a strong arm behind the plate and a strong rapport with pitchers, but it is difficult to judge his minor league numbers when he has progressed through the system slowly and has perpetually been much older than his competition. He has traditionally shown modest power and good contact rates, but the power fell off in his Triple-A debut. He should start 2016 at Triple-A once again, but could be in line for a big league debut if injury befalls the big league backstops.
