Will Smith (Sickels 2012 grade C, 2011 grade C+) isn't a high ceiling pitcher. He's a back of the rotation guy with an easy delivery (innings eater potential), but he's a lefty. He doesn't walk batters, he turned 22 this year, and he has size (6'5" and 235lbs). The FB is 88-92. Curve as well. He mixes speeds with both, and has a change as well.
He started off slow, and was immediately written off by many. After the Texas League All Star Break Smith had 12 starts, in which he pitched 79.2 innings with a 3.16 ERA, 62 K's, 19 BB's, 65 H's and only 4 HR's. He was named the Naturals' Pitcher of the Year. Dutton says he's going to get a spring training invite and I have to believe he'll start the year in the AAA rotation.
