|Dominic Smith having mixed results to begin career |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/17/13) Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith has had mixed results to begin his pro career for the GCL Mets (rookie). The 2013 first-round pick (11th overall) is batting .203 (12 for 59) with 14 strikeouts through 17 games, but he has one home run, three doubles, four runs, seven walks and eight RBI.
The Mets drafted Smith out of Serra High Scholl in Gardena, Calif. He hit .551 (43 for 78) with four triples, eight doubles, nine home runs, 36 runs and 49 RBI in 25 games as a senior. Baseball America ranked Smith as the 14th-best prospect in the 2013 draft class.
|Dominic Smith's Fantasy value takes a hit because he's so far from the majors, but among first base prospects, the 11th overall pick in the 2013 draft is the safest bet this side of Jonathan Singleton. No, he doesn't have Singleton's power, but he profiles as a better all-around hitter, batting .372 in August after needing a few weeks to adjust to his first season in professional ball. At 18, he already has some pop and only figures to get stronger as he matures, making a best-case scenario for him something in the neighborhood of Freddie Freeman. Of course, he has to prove himself in the minors first, but for all the fretting the Mets have done over Ike Davis' lack of development, Smith could make him obsolete by the time they're ready to compete. Obviously, he doesn't serve much purpose in single-season leagues, but he's the perfect pick for the long haul in dynasty formats.
