Athletic makeup standing 5-foot-10, 165-pounds. Square athletic stance, small leg lift to stride, and lands slightly closed. Hands are set back and show some rhythm and flow. Uphill tilt to the swing, lower half finished completely, and swing had some pull side tendency. Exit velocity was 81 mph. In the outfield Smith was under control on approach, solid glove presentation, and works through the throw. Arm action was short and throws from a three-quarter arm slot at 76 mph. Ran a 7.26 60.On the mound Smith had simple efficient mechanics. Repeatable leg lift, flexion in back leg, shoulders uphill and closed, and hips elevated. Engages lower half getting down the mound, clean hand break, and lands on line. Full arm action from a three-quarter arm slot. Fastball sat 73-76 mph and worked well to the glove side, showing nice swing back over the edge of the plate. Changeup had average feel and some late fade at 63-65 mph.

2019 Diamondskills All-American Camp - 1/19/2019

Solid 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame. From the windup is relaxed with a small rocker step to a high balance point with flexion in back leg. Strides down and out landing on line. Arm action is quick and short throwing from a three-quarter slot. Fastball was at 71-73 mph with some arm side run. Seemed to have a feel for the 2-seam fastball and was able to stay behind it a little longer and get more late action. Arm speed slowed a little on the changeup, but it had some late fade to it and should make for nice secondary pitch. Curveball was at 60-61 mph. Ran the 60 in 7.40.
