RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Smith is a one-tool player, but it is a special tool. He does not have power, but man does he have speed. He is one of the legitimate 80-tool speedsters in the league, which is what makes him so enticing at a time when stolen bases are becoming more and more scarce. Smith has stolen base totals of 64, 88 and 57 over his past three seasons in the minor leagues and threw in another 16 steals last year in 72 games with Atlanta. His season was shortened by a broken thumb but also had a tough time finding at-bats with Ender Inciarte, Matt Kemp and Nick Markakis eating up the playing time. The speedster's playing time situation is still fairly murky following a trade to Tampa Bay, as it's still unclear whether he'll act in strong side of a platoon in the outfield or if he'll be sent back to Triple-A for more consistent at-bats. Smith knows how to take a walk and can make contact, so the pieces are there for a 40-steal season with playing time as long as he can keep the bat in his hands and not have it knocked out with fastballs. Remember the Billy Hamilton learning curve.

2016

Elite speed is Smith's calling card and that tool was on full display once again last season, as he swiped 57 bases in 70 attempts between Double-A and Triple-A after totaling 88 steals in 2014 and 64 in 2013. He coupled that speed with a strong approach and good contact skills, hitting above .300 with for a second straight season with a career-low 14.3% strikeout rate. Power will never be a big part of the package with Smith, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound center fielder, but he has the potential to be a solid three-category fantasy contributor in time. Offseason trade acquisition Ender Inciarte appears likely to open the year in center field for the big club, but Smith could push Inciarte to left by midseason if he gets off to a strong start while possibly earning a spot at or near the top of the Atlanta batting order.
