Re: Baseball America Reds Top 30 (+1)
I remember the original scouting report on Smith had his velocity as high as 95-96. Of course he doesn't throw that hard consistently but he's definitely got some heat on his fastball. I've always thought he profiled best as a setup man because of his sinker/slider combo, but if he can develop an average or better changeup then he may have a chance at developing into a middle-of-the-rotation starter. I'll be interested in seeing how he performs in Double-A this year.
I miss Adam Dunn.
