6-foot, 165-pound Smith was a player we were looking forward to seeing going into the Tucson Open and he did not disappoint. The true shortstop put on a show this past weekend, showing a clean glove and accurate arm across the infield with a 86mph arm. At SS Smith has soft feet and good first step with lateral movement. At the plate Smith showed a mature round of BP with a center of the field approach.Smith showed a high leg lift, hands that worked inside the baseball with weight on his backside. At this moment Smith is a singles and doubles type hitter, with added strength we feel Smith will be a top of the line-up type hitter with power to the gaps. Smith is currently the #26 ranked player in the 2024 class and will be a high follow going into the Fall and Spring seasons.

Active feet with quick first step. Ability to play all 3 infield spots at an above average level. Stays in motion to target and feet keep him in rhythm. Ball has 4 seam flight across the diamond. Loose arm with ability to drop the slot if needed. (Hitting) Max EV 91.8 mph. Max DIst. 342 feet. Open in set up. Base is outside of shoulder width with a bend in the knees. Weight slightly pushed to the back side, back knee pushed inward over the toe. Hands are held at the back shoulder. Uses a knee to knee stride that brings him back to square.
