Smith's junior season has not been as productive statistically as would be expected out of a big righthander with a fastball that sits at 94-96 mph and touches 98. But scouts who want to dream on his excellent arm speed and athleticism could land an excellent bullpen arm if Smith can harness his downward-breaking breaking ball to pair with his plus fastball. His curveball has shown signs of becoming an above-average pitch in the past, but he didn't throw it consistently enough this year to trust it. Smith hides the ball well in his delivery and has some deception and glove-side run to his fastball. Dallas Baptist tried Smith briefly as a starter but returned him to the bullpen, and he projects as a reliever in pro ball thanks to the effort in his delivery and his fringy command.
