Smith is the Dodgers #4 overall prospect behind Keibert Ruiz (catcher), Gavin Lux (SS/2B), and Dustin May (pitcher). The final spot of MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospect list now belongs to Will Smith. There are three other Dodgers on that list as well. Keibert Ruiz (#28 overall), Gavin Lux (#31 overall), Dustin May (#51 overall). The three that are also in front of Smith on the Dodgers top 30 prospects.
Will Smith has 9 appearances for the big league club this season. Two of his three home runs were the deciding factor resulting in a win in both of those games. His first career home run was a walk-off on June 1st against the Phillies and his 3rd career home run was a walk-off against the Rockies. He slashed .269/.345/.654 in that short amount of time.
The catching prospect is still down with Triple-A OKC. I still expect him to be back with the big league club before season’s end.
