    Player Outlook

    Dominic Smith made significant strides in the power department last season, as the sweet-swinging lefty hit 14 home runs and drove in 91 runs in 130 games for Double-A Binghamton, both career highs. Smith has always possessed the ability to hit for average, and he batted over .300 for the second consecutive season. The Mets used James Loney as a stopgap option last season, which is fitting given that's the comparison that has been used with Smith throughout his time in the minors. Nevertheless, if Lucas Duda continues to battle back problems, Smith could see the big leagues as soon as this upcoming season. He will likely head to Triple-A to start the year to continue working on his power stroke.

    • Mets' Dominic Smith: Sent to minor league camp
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith was sent back to the Mets' minor league camp Saturday, The New York Daily News reports. While he hit only .185 in 27 at-bats, Smith made a good first impression on manager Terry Collins. "I thought he didn't hit like he normally does. I think he's always hit. The most thing I was impressed with is he came into camp in great shape. That's impressive for a young guy," Collins said. "It probably hit me more than anything that he was willing at his age. 'Hey look I am going to come into camp and show everybody I can get ready to play.' I think he's going to be a big league player. He's got great hands. I do think, I do believe he's going to hit. I always think those guys will learn how to hit the ball out of the ballpark." Smith is still only 21, but if his power stroke continues to develop at Triple-A Las Vegas this season, don't be surprised if he makes his big league debut sometime in the second half.

    • Mets' Dominic Smith: Sheds 24 pounds in offseason
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brown said Friday that he lost 24 pounds this offseason, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. The Mets have to be pleased that one of their top prospects will be entering the 2017 season in much-improved physical shape than in previous years. The 21-year-old first baseman has always projected to be a strong hitter, but his slimmed-down figure should now allow him to be more agile defensively as well. He'll likely begin the season with Triple-A Las Vegas, and could eventually earn a big league promotion with a strong performance.

    • Mets' Dominic Smith: Continues to rake in the minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs batted in and a run scored Thursday and is now hitting .306/.370/.470 on the season. Smith continues to rake at Double-A Binghamton, notching a career-high 14 home runs to go along with 28 doubles and 88 runs batted in. He should open 2017 at Triple-A Las Vegas and potentially land in the majors during the season. Smith is viewed as the first baseman of the future for New York; that future could start as early as next year.

    • Mets' Dominic Smith: Two more home runs Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith continued his recent stretch of red-hot hitting Saturday, going went 4-for-4 with two homers and five runs batted in against Double-a New Hampshire. Smith has six home runs since June 24, giving him 10 on the season along with 58 runs batted in. Power has always been a question mark in his game but he is doing his best to dispel that notion lately. If Smith continues to hit as well as he has recently, a promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas could occur in the near future.

    • Smith is not considered a short-term option to help the Mets at first base in the wake of Lucas Duda's back injury, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Just 20 years old, Smith is getting his first exposure to Double-A to begin the 2016 season. Thus far, he's handled the jump reasonably well, hitting .272/.308/.407 with four homers, 31 RBI, and a 9:27 BB:K in 41 games. For now, the Mets will use a committee to replace Duda, which will likely feature Wilmer Flores as a regular at first base once Flores is back from the disabled list.
