|2015-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Can Mallex Smith hit like this in the majors? Could he be the leadoff hitter for the Braves next year? |
(contori66 from Indianapolis)
|No I don't think so. There's a lot to like about Mallex, mostly the energy he brings to every plate appearance, chance in the field, etc. He's fun. But I don't think he's going to hit enough to play every day and if he does, it shouldn't be as a leadoff hitter. Perhaps he could bat 8th on a good team. I think he's a 4th outfielder/energy/platoon/glue guy on a good team. (Jeff Moore)|
|2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)||Mallex Smith or Roman Quinn?|
(jeff from san berdoo)
|I'll go with Quinn here. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2015-05-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Is Mallex Smith the future CF for Atlanta? What kind of impact can he have at the big league level?|
(Brian from Orlando)
|I don't think so, I have too many questions about the tools outside of the speed. Maybe he becomes the good version of Michael Bourn, but I think fourth outfielder who can impact the game with his wheels is a more likely scenario. (Christopher Crawford)|
|2014-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Who were some players that impressed you the most/least out in Arizona?|
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
|- Mallex Smith has a plus glove in the OF and plus speed. Not sure if he ever hits, but that's a 4th OF type at the very worst.
- Brandon Drury looked the part
- Hunter Renfroe shows serious power and his BP was the best. The hip torque and drive he gets while demonstrating plus bat speed and whipping the bat head through the zone, it's just so impressive. We shall see if he hits enough to allow the power to play up.
- Sam Wolff looked the same as when I saw him early in the year. I can't trust the secondary arsenal (CB,CH). Had a hard time finding a release point or arm slot for both. Reliever all the way for me, but could see issues if he can't consistently piece it together with at least one of those pitches. The CB is much further along.
- Chad Wallach had pop times over 2.00 and has below-average tools across the board. Nothing different from when I saw him with Greensboro (where he hit .321/.430/.476) (Tucker Blair)
|2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)||What were the hit/power/run/glove/arm tools you've seen this year in the MWL?|
(Tommy from Chicago)
|Hit: Brett Phillips? Not many good options, here
Run: Mallex Smith
Arm: not yasiel balaguert (Jordan Gorosh)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
