Mets' Josh Smoker: Mets add to 40-man roster
Smoker was added to the Mets' 40-man roster Thursday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Smoker pitched well in the minors in 2015, posting a 3.00 ERA with Double-A Binghamton and striking out 26 batters in 21 innings. This move could be just to prevent him from being a target of the Rule 5 Draft, but it could also lead to bigger things, especially with the left-hander possessing the ability to touch the upper-90s with his fastball.
