SCOUTING REPORT
Smith ranks high for his bat, with good hitting ability and power. He needs that, since his best position is first base, an offense first position. He’s a two-way player, but has better upside as a hitter. He doesn’t have the typical power hitter’s body due to his height. The power took a big jump during his junior year in high school, and he could secure his spot in the top half of the draft with similar hitting and power numbers this year. It’s a bit of a risk drafting a first baseman with a high pick. You’re gambling on the bat, with no fallback if the bat struggles. By comparison, a catcher or a shortstop could make up for struggles at the plate with their defensive skills. Because of this, Smith is going to have to live up to his reputation as one of the top hitters in the draft to be worth a pick in the top half.
