His swing does look like Cano. Sweet swing.

Love the pick. Finally we have leadership that goes with upside vs. who can be here quick.

60 plus tools for hitting, power and fielding.

I'm fine with this pick. A bit disappointed they didn't take Shipley but Smith was firmly in the next class of "I'm perfectly okay with taking him."

John Manuel ‏@johnmanuelba 22s
Had a scout comp Dom Smith to Adrian Gonzalez. that would be pretty sweet value at No. 11 #Mets #mlbdraft

From Keith Law:

Smith is one of the best pure hitters in the high school class, showing a smooth left-handed swing with power and a plus glove at first base. When he keeps his weight back, his swing is outstanding, with great balance through contact and good hip rotation to generate power from his legs. He has quick, strong wrists, with a projectable body that should lead to very hard contact when he fills out in three or four years. He can drift forward at the plate too early, getting his weight out over his front side before he's started his hands, losing power and struggling to control the bat head behind him. His stride is long and early, which may be part of the reason for his trouble staying back but is an easy fix in pro ball.

Smith is an excellent defender at first with a 70 arm, hitting 92 off the mound the one time I saw him pitch, albeit with a rough delivery. He doesn't show a lot of energy on the field, which has positive aspects (he's a confident, relaxed hitter) and negative ones (some scouts have questioned the effort level, myself included), but there are no serious concerns about his makeup. In this draft, with so few potential impact bats, he's a clear top 20 talent.

He seems small for 1B. Do "experts" think he'll grow anymore?

Honestly? Face-of-the-franchise superstar. For someone who has the reputation of a power hitter, Smith has a lot of tools. His contact and power could end up elite. His arm and glove could end up being assets. And his speed is far enough above average that it isn't a concern. If he can figure out professional hitting and keep from getting injured, he could very well end up the best prospect in the entire class, when it's all said and done.
