Notes

Comments

6/23/21

Body: 5-foot-11, 160 pounds. 
Defense: IF. Hops into his set up. AA Easy, fluid actions through the fielding process. Feel for the hop and timing to maintain smooth actions. Presents his glove well, funneling into his midsection. Ranges well to both sides with comfort in the backhand play. One of the top defensive performance in the 2023 Class.
Arm: RH. IF - 78. Loose, quick arm. Can change slots to maintain fluidity.
Hit: RH. Spread, squared set up. Early stride. Compact stroke. Level through the zone. Some uphill through extension. Produced a line drive filled round. Stayed within his approach throughout his BP Session. 
Power: 90.89 mph Exit Velocity via TrackMan. 
Run: 7.47 Laser Timed

Delivery: Athletic, even paced delivery. Stays compact throughout. Drop and drive type. Lands slightly closed off. Balanced finish over his front side. Some effort with control.
Arm Action: RH. High ¾  to Over the Top slot. Quick with some looseness.
FB: 79-80 mph. Up to 80.06 mph. Commands well in the zone. Showed his ability to move in and out. Works around the knees.
CB: 69-70 mph. 12/6 shape. Flashed some back up action. 

8/17/19

Smith has small, compact frame. In spite of a pedestrian 60-yard time, he maintains first step quickness. Offensively he utilizes a middle to opposite field approach with a compact swing. His barrel feel will make him a bat handler down the line with an ability to execute. He has a utility in him that would likely provide an ability to play most positions, but better suited to second base where his arm strength plays with a solid internal clock for different hops and ground balls. He displayed a feel for angle throws from second base as well as double play feeds.
