BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Chris Smith can still baffle the kids in Nashville, where he, his changeup, and his curve will spend the summer as bullpen insurance.
2010 For the first time in his career, long-time Red Sox farmhand Chris Smith spent much of a summer traveling the country as a member of a big-league bullpen, but he probably shouldn’t get used to such pampering. A soft-tosser who would be called “crafty” if he threw left-handed, the mediocre production he provided was based on an unsustainable .241 BABIP that provided cover for a sky-high homer rate and indifferent peripherals. That’s a combination with “Highly Flammable” stenciled all over it.
2009 Another victim of the team's decision to almost randomly sort through relievers in the bottom of their bullpen, Smith is a soft-tossing right-hander who complements his fastball with a slider and a change. This combination was not enough to keep the Sox' attention, as the team designated him for assignment in October; he elected to become a free agent rather than return to the minors.
2005 The Red Sox's lone young pitcher injury for the season, Smith was having a good year in Portland before he went down for labrum surgery. The Sox hope he'll be ready for spring training, but labrums have derailed more impressive careers than his, so until further notice, chalk up another example for TINSTAAPP.
