Five-foot-9 speedster Mallex Smith was a 13th-round pick last year and is essentially the same player this spring. Now he has added a year of junior-college performance, hitting .387/.472/.473 for Santa Fe (Fla.) JC while adding 31 stolen bases in 37 attempts. He's an 80 runner with some rawness to his game that shows up most on defense. Smith lacks the strength to drive the ball consistently now and has to get stronger to keep pitchers honest at the pro level. He has a below-average arm.
