Kent State righthander Kyle Smith, a projected second- to fourth-round pick, sat out last weekend’s series against Buffalo and will have an MRI on his shoulder this week. Smith had been trying to pitch through some shoulder tightness before the Golden Flashes shut him down as a precaution. An orthopedist diagnosed him with shoulder tendinitis earlier in the year.
Smith hasn’t pitched since April 25, when he started and worked just two innings in a 28-16 win over Ohio. When he’s at his best, the 6-foot-6, 220-pounder features a lively low-90s fastball, a quality slider and a decent changeup. He has gone 3-2, 5.14 in nine starts, with a 34-16 K-BB ratio in 42 innings.
