Scouting Report / Bio: Big athlete often compared to Matt Holliday, but doesn't show the same athleticism. Smith has solid plate coverage with a pretty line drive stroke. Power could still come, but doesn't have the same loft to his hits as most power hitters. Could be more patience. Defensively, Smith takes erratic routes and his arm is just average. Best profile may be in left field.

Future Outlook: Average MLB starting left fielder
