    What about Dominic Smith?

    This guy is likely going to be a first baseman, but the outfield is not out of the question, though I doubt he could play there long term because of his speed. GG caliber defense at 1st base and he could flat out hit.


    Mets lack hitters and they lack 1st base prospects as well.

    Baseball Prospectus
    Dominic Smith | 1B/OF/LHP | Serra HS (Los Angeles, CA)
    6-foot-1/200 pounds | left/left profile | draft day age 17y 11m | Univ. of Southern California commit

    Smith entered the WWBA World Championship as a potential 1st rounder with some heat off the strength of his summer showcase performances. A member of last year’s Marlin’s Scout Team (which is where I had my first extended looks at the talented Smith), he spent the 2012 Perfect Game tourney with Yak Baseball West-GBG, where he logged time at first base, in the outfield and even behind the plate (where he popped a 1.84 to second base per Joe Hamrahi and a couple of Perfect Game scouts).






    Smith began to gain traction on the mound late in the summer, where he now sits 90-92 mph from the left side, boasting an intriguing upside and a strong, athletic body providing an ample lump of clay with which a developmental staff could work. Last weekend’s tournament, however, reminded everyone just how impressive Smith’s offensive skillset is. Here’s what the BP scouting contingent saw:

    One of the elite position players in his class, he was the talk of the tourney after catching on the backfields in a consolation game. By the way, he’s a southpaw. Has Gold Glove potential at first base and well above average arm. Left-handed bat is outstanding, uses other field as well as any hitter in his class, and is starting to display power. Versatile; likes to play. Enjoyed watching him try to keep his bat dry in one of the weekend’s frequent visits by Hurricane Sandy, tucked it under his arm and jersey until the last moment. USC Commit.–Dan Evans

    Had the best pure swing in the tournament. It was fluid and smooth, and he barreled just about everything he hit. Smith went the other way with authority and is a scout’s dream of a hitter. The kid can do just about everything, including catch; registered a pop time of 1.84.–Joe Hamrahi

    Impressive physique, good tapered frame; big league body; clean swing with line drive ability pole-to-pole; pull side power but still learning to implement in-game; could develop legit playable power across field with time and reps; picks at first as well as any amateur I’ve seen; footspeed not ideal for outfield, even in a corner; will save runs at first base; plus make-up; USC commit; profiles well as Day 1 bat; a kid you draft with no concerns about his adjustment to pro ball on and off the field.–Nick Faleris

    2nd round? He's not a guy I want with the 11th pick.

    I also have zero problem with the Mets drafting Jonathan Denney, Reese McGuire or Jeremy Martinez, I love Martinez but I think any of those 3 guys would be good picks.

    He is not going to be in the 2nd round, he is a 1st round talent.

    The object of this crazy game we all love is to hit the baseball — at least for hitters. Few do it as effortlessly as Smith at the high school level. He recently went 10-for-13 with four walks and two stolen bases at the MLK Tournament sponsored by Perfect Game, garnering MVP honors. The 6’-1”, 200-pound left-hander has an incredible batting eye, striking out just twice over 25 games as a junior. He also hit .551 with nine home runs, 49 RBI and stole 14 bases. Over his 77-game high school career, he is hitting .568 with 14 home runs, 126 RBI, 29 stolen bases and has fanned a miniscule 13 times. He also has an arm that has been clocked at 94 mph, making him a good fit for the outfield if he can refine his defense.

    One of the more projectable prep hitters in the draft class, Smith, a 6’1” left-handed hitter, already has a knack for making hard contact and is only beginning to learn how to tap into his raw power.

    Although he may ultimately land at first base, whoever drafts Smith would be wise to develop him as an outfielder. He’s an excellent athlete with a plus arm, and has all the makings of a standout right fielder in the major leagues.

    Here's some video:

    I love his swing, he's a little off-balanced, but it reminds me of Cano.

    The problem is he may not have the speed to stay in the outfield, but if he is just below average then is ok, as long as he is not a statue out there. Like the arm and everything else that he brings to the table.


    ...and even if he ends up at 1st base a GG caliber defensive guy there? with a good bat?, yeah am down.

    I think he would have more value as an outfielder than a 1st baseman personally because it eases the pressure on his bat. His arm is kind of useless at 1B too.

    Well yeah, that goes without saying, my point is that if he does not stick in the outfield am ok with him at 1st, much like Ike and his great arm there too.

    He's one of those guys that might sneak in the top 10.
