C.J. Smith

OF
Name: Carl J. Smith
Born: in
Drafted in the 5th round (139th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2004 (signed for $205,000)
A sixth-round pick a year ago by the Pirates as a draft-eligible sophomore, Smith seems likely to improve on that, if only by one round. Tall and gangly, Smith generates good bat speed and excellent power--he had 17 extra-base hits in the Cape Cod League. He plays the game with enthusiasm, in contrast to his teammate Ben Harrison, an unsigned fourth-round pick in 2003 whose stock has slipped as a senior. Smith also has more power potential than Harrison. A first baseman in 2003, Smith played more outfield this year, and while he looks more like a first baseman at 6-foot-3, he has poor actions around the bag. His below-average arm will limit him to left field.
