Drafted in the 11th round (323rd overall) by the Miami Marlins in 2016 (signed for $100,000)
Armed with a pitcher's body at 6-foot-4, 178 pounds, Smith was a 23rd-round pick of the Indians last year but spurned pro ball to transfer from Walters State (Tenn.) CC to Mississippi. The Rebels wound up pushing him out of their weekend rotation into mid-week work, as he attacked hitters with only one plus weapon. It's a good weapon, though, a fastball at 93-95 mph at its peak. His slider is his best secondary pitch but still earns fringe-average grades, while his changeup is still below-average.
