A bat with some serious power, Dwight Smith could be an interesting addition for the Phillies in 2016. Toronto drafted Smith in 2011 with a first-round supplemental pick (53rd overall) and have been impressed with his development.
Son of former major leager Dwight Smith Sr., the Blue Jays prospect hit 15 home runs in Double-A last season. Not only does he provide power, but speed is a plus with Smith. Three seasons ago he stole 25 bases, followed by 15 and 12 in his last two.
Most impressive is his ability to be patient at the plate. Last year he walked 45 times following a season where he walked 47.
Smith could compete for the Phillies right field job, and probably get a handful of starts in the beginning of the season. His ability to get on base and create runs with his legs and bat make him another strong candidate to be drafted by the Phillies.
