2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2016

The White Sox added Smith to their 40-man roster last offseason, but he spent all of 2015 at the Triple-A level. Smith, a former college quarterback, has a strong arm behind the plate and a strong rapport with pitchers, but it is difficult to judge his minor league numbers when he has progressed through the system slowly and has perpetually been much older than his competition. He has traditionally shown modest power and good contact rates, but the power fell off in his Triple-A debut. He should start 2016 at Triple-A once again, but could be in line for a big league debut if injury befalls the big league backstops.
