Project as you wish, but Low A Midwest League tends to be a good place to hit and Rojas was at .665 OPS. At Billings in 2008, Rojas hit .183 BA in 228 plate appearances.
And you and I have very different views of relief pitchers. If Smith winds up in the pen, he'll be an asset there with his ground ball tendencies, few walks allowed, and low WHIP. And he'll eat innings too as a former starter, if that's what happens.
