BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Injuries and the resulting ineffectiveness have mired Josh Smoker in the lower levels, and the 2007 first-rounder, who once had an impressive array of pitches, is now a long shot to ever reach the majors.
2012 Finally healthy again and converted to relief, Josh Smoker had his best season yet, throwing with the velocity that helped make him the 31st overall selection of the 2007 draft.
