2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)He's a long way away no doubt, but what is Matt Smoral's upside? If he puts it together can he be a number 2 starter?
(Jim from Earth)
Jason Parks would be a really good guy to ask about this one as I haven't seen or read too much on him. In a preseason chat Jason said a 2/3 outcome was more likely but it depended on how he looked in extended ST. Jury is still out, it would seem. (Mauricio Rubio)

2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Does Matt Smoral have top of the rotation potential? Doyou expect him to make lo-A this year or strictly an extended spring to rookie ball path?
(Neal from CA)
No. But not many do. It's very early, but I think a 2/3 ceiling is more realistic. I think it depends on how he looks in ext ST. I assume they will set the developmental schedule based on how he looks. (Jason Parks)
