2018 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Chris Smith in 2018. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Reassigned to minors camp
PWashington Nationals  AAA
March 25, 2018
The Nationals reassigned Smith to their minor-league camp Saturday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
As a 28-year-old, Smith reached the big leagues for the first time of his career in 2017, making four appearances out of the Toronto bullpen. Smith didn't impress in those outings and was quickly outrighted off the 40-man roster, forcing him to settle for a minor-league pact with the Nationals over the winter. After being dismissed Saturday as part of the big club's wave of cuts, Smith looks destined to open the season in the Triple-A Syracuse bullpen.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
