Keith Smith Jr

POSITION

,

Evaluation

Keith is a medium frame, athletic RHP/OF with a better future as a RHP. Still a crude delivery and mechanical adjustments necessary but shows some natural strike throwing ability along with feel to spin a breaking ball. Still room for added strength and growth. Works from a semi windup with a compact, medium arm stroke. Does seem to hide the ball well. Still needs to learn to keep delivery in line and maintain a consistent release point. Works off a 4 seam FB/CB combination. FB mostly was up in the zone (70-72), has more velo in there with continued physical development and mechanical adjustments. Also showed an 11-5 CB (58-60) with a lot of depth and proper shape. Up tempo on the mound with some natural strike throwing ability. See Keith as a JUCO or D3 type project.
