I haven't seen any "prospect updates" on this player yet. But the 6th rounder has gotten off to a good start at Billings. The 6' 4" right hander is 2-0 with a 1.47 ERA, pitched in 30.2 innings given up 22 hits, 8 runs 6 earned, while striking out 23 and walking only 4. His WHIP is 0.85. I think this is another one to keep our eye on.

He seems to compare favorably to fellow Reds prospect Zach Ward in terms of possessing a power arm and a great sinking fastball. 12 of his 16 outs last night were via the groundball, one on a flyout and the other three on strikeouts. Smith seems to be ready for a promotion to Dayton. Send Ward to Sarasota or Chattanooga and replace him at Dayton with Jordan Smith.

On draft day, the BA writer who broke down the first half of the Reds picks said he believed Smith would be a reliever.
