BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 Part of the weak payoff from the Yankees for Bobby Abreu, Matt Smith underwent Tommy John surgery in July. It's going to be difficult for him to reestablish his tenuous hold on a big-league job when he returns.
2007 The token big-leaguer in the Abreu trade, Smith actually has a decent amount of value. Not Abreu-level value, of course, but he`s a lefty with good velocity for a southpaw (cracking 90 MPH now and again), and he`s got a sharp slider. He should be a lock to step into the primary LOOGY role, barring a late addition. He`s more than ready, and he`ll be good in the job.
