BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Smith looks like a traditional low-arm-slot pitcher, throwing a sinker-slider combo and thriving on lots of groundballs and enough strikeouts to make him a very effective ROOGY. Over the past two years, however, Smith has found a way to become relatively successful against lefties, ratcheting up his usage totals in the process. While the secret is far from a traditional four-seamer, Smith has utilized this second fastball far more often vs. lefties of late, using it 250 percent more frequently than the two-seamer this year. Given the extreme platoon split associated with two-seamers, should that usage pattern continue, Smith will remain a capable mid- to late-inning option.
2012 On the surface, Smith may look like a mere middle-relief specialist, but what he represents is so much more: the savviness the Cleveland front office can show at times. Part of the three-team deal that sent the Mets J.J. Putz, the New York media brushed off losing Joe Smith as irrelevant because they received a "similar" pitcher in Sean Green. Three years later, Smith has posted a 2.87 ERA compared to Green's 4.57 in fifty percent more innings. Throwing somewhere between sidearm and submarine with a great sinker, Smith collects ground balls as easily as Brad Pitt collects fan mail. Finding the zone more frequently this season—52 percent of pitches compared to 47 percent last year—Smith took a step forward with his control and is a quality piece of the Cleveland bullpen.
2011 If you are going to have a lot of mediocre fastballs in your bullpen, you might as well have one that throws sidearm. That's Joe Smith in a nutshell, but unlike many sidewinders, Smith has control problems, with a career walk rate of just under one for every two innings pitched. Even when he's struggling to throw strikes, right-handers can't touch him—they posted a .160/.264/.274 line against him in 2010—so if you pick his spots right, he's usable.
2010 After being sidelined with a viral infection in spring training, Smith had a rocky start in April; then again, the Tribe had more rocky Aprils than Bullwinkle's spring dance card. Smith then lost all of May to a sprained rotator cuff, but coming back strong in June, he had a 2.60 ERA in his next 27 2/3 IP. Then a sprained left knee shelved him for the season in late August. Smith still seems to be the ROOGY he was with the Mets, as he again showed an extreme split (RHBs: .198/.271/.344, LHBs: .355/.412/.581). A healthy Smith would be one of the key pieces towards making Tribe skippers less squirrelly about their bullpens.
2009 The sidewinding Smith was the right-handed complement to Feliciano and Schoeneweis, holding righties to a .192/.286/.302 line (lefties put up a 903 OPS). Sensibly enough, Smith was managed carefully, facing righty batters much more frequently than southpaws (210 PAs to 61) while making the third-most appearances in the majors. He's an effective piece to have in the pen, especially at pre-arbitration prices, but there's reason to believe he could become more than a ROOGY: Smith's walk rate is what suffers versus southpaws, as he's held them to a lone homer in 119 major league PA. Any strides in that regard will be made in Cleveland, as Smith was shipped to the Tribe in the three-team, 12-player Putz bonanza.
2008 A 2006 draftee who entered last year with just 33 innings of professional experience, Smith earned a job in the Mets bullpen with an outstanding spring training performance, then performed admirably when he was used correctly. As a right-handed sidewinder, Smith is nothing more than a ROOGY. Left-handed batters hit .298/.411/.447 against him in 2007, and there's no reason to expect that change. Chad Bradford is the model here, but the Mets had Bradford for the one season in which he actually had success against lefties, so they have yet to fully understand Smith's utility.
