Scouts hoping to get a good look at Canaan Smith this spring didn't always get to see him swing the bat. Smith, also the quarterback for Rockwall-Heath High in Rockwall, Texas, has punished enough opponents with his lefthanded power that teams pitched him very carefully this year. Smith wasn't going to chase pitches out of the zone, so he racked up walks at a furious pace. He finished the year with 57 walks, ninth most in a single season in high school history. When he wasn't getting a free pass, Smith has shown above-average bat speed and power potential. Smith has played catcher, first base and outfield while in high school, but he's more likely to play in the outfield than catcher if he signs coming out of the draft. He's committed to Arkansas.
