Evan Smith was on scouts' radar last summer and earned an invite to the East Coast Pro Showcase, but didn't impress tremendously, showing a raw delivery and a fastball that topped out in the 84-86 mph range. However, Smith got better this spring, flashing 88-92 mph velocity early and still bumping some 92s as the year went along. Smith may have to have a delivery overhaul but has shown raw arm strength and hand speed to spin a breaking ball. Some scouts believe he'll need two years in Rookie ball.
