Smit Goes From Outback To The Pros

This is an article from August 2007, but thought some who missed it the first time around may be interested in it. In the coming weeks, I'll be posting several more of these older articles that were written before this blog began a year ago.

The Indians dipped into the outback last year to nab 16-year old Jason Smit, a promising, young prospect out of Australia. When he signed with the Indians in July, Smit was widely considered a top ten International prospect.

At 16-years old, there is a lot of projection involved with any prospect at that age, so there is no telling what may happen with Smit over the course of the next few years as his body continues to mature. Still, the chance at grabbing a player with a lot of upside offensively that can be a middle of the diamond player was intriguing for the Indians and their scouts to pass up.
