2018 Fantasy Outlook
Smith is a name worth knowing primarily because he's a member of the Marlins' organization. The 26-year-old lefty has just 18.2 major-league innings to his name, in which he's posted a 7.71 ERA. But for a Marlins team which lacks depth in the starting rotation (or really anywhere on the team), Smith could easily end up making double-digit starts. He's been a solid performer in his minor-league career, recording a 3.19 ERA with 8.5 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in five seasons. That's not impressive enough for him to project as a real weapon in 2018, but it's enough to make him relevant in NL-only leagues. With Wei-Yin Chen and Dan Straily both injured to start the season, a rotation spot has opened up for Smith. Read Past Outlooks

Shoulder
July 9, 2018
Smith (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The move is purely a procedural one, as Smith has already been ruled out for the year after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. It clears the way for Javy Guerra's contract to be selected from Triple-A New Orleans.
