Mets prospect Dominic Smith picked up two more hits for Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.
Smith went 2-for-4 on the day, and also knocked in his first run of the 2017 season. He hasn't gone deep yet, but he does have two doubles, so he's not just dinking-and-dunking. Even if he's not the prototypical masher, Smith's ability to hit for average makes him one of the better first base prospect in baseball -- fantasy and real-life. Apr 10 - 2:25 PM

Mets prospect Dominic Smith made his Triple-A debut on Thursday; picking up two hits in the process.

If Smith played any other position but first base, we'd be talking about him a lot more. Even if he is limited to the cold corner, he's still a very intriguing bat, and he showed why on Thursday. He's not your prototypical masher, but he can get on-base, and 20-homer seasons are certainly possible. The Mets will want Smith to get as much seasoning as possible, but it's certainly not out of the question that he'll see time with the Mets this season.

Mets reassigned INFs Dominic Smith, Phillip Evans, Luis Guillorme, OF Champ Stuart, LHPs P.J. Conlon, David Roseboom and RHPS Kevin McGowan, Logan Taylor and Corey Taylor to minor league camp.

As is typically the case early in camp, there are no real surprises among this group of cuts. Smith, one of the Mets' top prospects, hit .302/.367/.457 with 14 homers and 91 RBI in 130 games at Double-A Binghampton in 2016.

Mets 1B prospect Dominic Smith notched three hits Tuesday in a win for Double-A Binghamton.

He's hit a ridiculous .474 during his five-game hitting streak. Smith's name is plastered all over the Eastern League leaderboards. He ranks third in RBI (85), seventh in doubles (27), eighth in homers (14) and eighth in OPS (.835). Smith's power has come out of nowhere. Before this year, his previous career-high in homers was only six. The former first-round pick doesn't have a whole lot left to prove in Double-A. Expect him to begin next year with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Mets 1B prospect Dominic Smith homered and drove in two runs Sunday in a win for Double-A Binghamton.

In doing so, he stretched his hitting streak to 12 games. Smith has hit .429 during that span while raising his season average from .281 to .299. Dating back to July 1, Smith owns a .363 average with six homers and 28 RBI. Before this season, Smith had homered only 10 times in 1,090 minor league at-bats. The 21-year-old ranks third in the Eastern League with 79 RBI and is also eighth in batting average.

Mets 1B prospect Dominic Smith matched a career-high with four RBI Tuesday in a win for Double-A Binghamton.

The 20-year-old collected his third home run of the season as Binghamton cruised to a 13-2 win over Portland. Smith's last four-RBI game came on May 31, 2015 while playing for High-A St. Lucie. He's hit a ridiculous .349 over his last 11 games after batting just .171 over his first 11 contests. Smith is now second in the Eastern League with 20 RBI. The former first-round pick led the Florida State League with 79 RBI in 2015.

Mets reassigned INFs Dominic Smith, Gavin Cecchini, and Marc Krauss, OF Travis Taijeron, RHP Stolmy Pimentel, and LHP Duane Below to minor league camp.

It was the second round of cuts in Mets' camp and there weren't any surprises among them. Smith, a first-round pick from 2013, is arguably the Mets' top position prospect. The 20-year-old has yet to show significant power, but he batted .305 with a .354 on-base percentage in High-A last year and plays very good defense.

Dominic Smith went 2-for-4 with a walk in the Mets' 3-1 victory over the Astros on Saturday.

Smith, the Mets' first-round pick in 2013, hit .305/.354/.417 in the Florida State League last season. The Mets are expecting him to show more power in Double-A this year, though the big home run numbers probably won't come until he reaches Triple-A in 2017. In the meantime, the .300 average is nice.

Mets prospect 1B Dominic Smith went 2-for-3 with a home run, double and two RBI on Wednesday for High-A St. Lucie.

The home run was Smith’s third of the season, matching his career high. The 20-year-old first baseman got off to a slow start this season in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League before finally heating up in mid-May, as he’s batting a robust .346/.389/.505 with 74 hits, 28 extra-base hits and 48 RBI in his last 53 games. The 2013 first-round draft pick is having a fine season overall, with a .299/.345/.423 batting line through 72 games for St. Lucie.

Mets 1B prospect Dominic Smith matched a career-high with four hits Sunday in a win for High-A St. Lucie.

He finished 4-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Smith now has seven hits in his last eight at-bats. In two games, he's raised his average from .274 to .298. The 2013 first-round pick had some bad luck earlier in the year, hitting .216 on balls in play over his first 19 games. Since then he's hit .368 on balls in play and now leads the league with 21 doubles. Today is Smith's 20th birthday.

Mets prospect 1B Dominic Smith went 2-for-4 with his second home run of the season on Monday for High-A St. Lucie.

Smith got off to a dreadful start this season, batting just .157/.213/.171 with 19 strikeouts through his first 19 games. Since then, however, the 19-year-old has hit safely in 22 of 26 games, with a .346/.382/.577 batting line, 20 extra-base hits (18 doubles) and 27 RBI in that span. There are a variety of opinions regarding Smith’s future potential, especially after he batted just .271/.344/.338 with one home run in 126 games last season at Low-A Savannah, but the left-handed hitting first baseman is making a statement this year with his strong showing in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League. On the season, Smith is batting .270/.314/.414 through 45 games.

Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith smashed three hits Sunday in a win for High-A St. Lucie.

Smith drove in four runs to cap off an incredible weekend. On Saturday, the 19-year-old belted an 11th-inning walk-off home run, his second blast in 215 career minor league games. Smith's three-hit day Sunday extended his hitting streak to 13 games. The 2013 first-round pick batted .276 with 23 RBI in the month of May.

Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith went 2-for-6 with a double and a home run during a doubleheader for Low-A Savannah on Saturday.

Smith has seen his batting average take a plunge in August, but he has been hitting for more power, putting up a .269/.321/.500 line with three doubles and a home run. He is hitting .283/.351/.350 for the season, but has done little to allay concerns that he will never hit for power, which would make him nearly unplayable at first base. Savannah is a brutal place to hit, particularly for lefties, so next year with High-A St. Lucie may be a better test for the 2013 first round pick.

Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith went 2-for-5 for Low-A Savannah.

Smith has been on fire in July, hitting .415/.422/.488, raising his season line to .298/.355/.361 with 20 doubles. After a slow start to the season, he has hit .329/.388/.402 since the beginning of May. Smith is likely to spend the rest of the season in Savannah and start 2015 with High-A St. Lucie.
Sun, Jul 13, 2014 11:30:00 AM

Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith went 2-for-4 on Monday for Low-A Savannah, raising his season line to .296/.355/.359.

Over his last 25 games, Smith has hit .390/.431/.510 with 12 doubles. He has 19 doubles and zero home runs for the season, which has kept open the question as to whether he will develop sufficient power to be a first baseman in the major leagues.
