2017

2008

In some ways comparable to a left-handed Zack Greinke, Smoker mixes a low-90s fastball with a wide assortment of breaking pitches, including a plus curve and splitter, and has enviable competitiveness and mound savvy. He won't turn 19 until after the season's over, and is a long way from the majors, but his mental toughness could help him push up the ladder much more quickly than anyone expects.
