Austin Smith was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2015 draft by the Padres, out of Park Vista Community HS, Lake Worth, Florida.
Smith has three pitches: mid-90’s fastball, curve and change-up.
He has had a rough time of it in his pro career. In 2016, with Low-A Fort Wayne, he went 4-6 with a 5.26 ERA. He allowed 104 hits in 90.2 innings, and struck out 63 while walking 46. Good for a 1.65 WHIP. Not great numbers.
That said, he is young at only 19. I think that he still has plenty of time to put it all together.
