With the 11th overall pick in the MLB Draft, the Mets took first baseman Dominic Smith, a high school player out of southern California. Smith bats and throws left handed, and is arguably the best high school position player in this year's draft. He comes from the same area as Darryl Strawberry, who just happened to be present at the draft and immediately posed for pictures with Smith.Smith has a smooth lefty swing, with an ideal blend of power and average. Many scouts project him as a plus bat in the big leagues. Defensively, he is said to be a plus first baseman. He also possesses a strong arm and enough athleticism to move to a corner outfield spot, but initial reports indicate that the front office has no intention to move him away from first base.This marks the third consecutive year that Sandy Alderson and the front office chose a high school position player in the first round, after Brandon Nimmo in 2011 and Gavin Cecchini last year. The Mets gave no regard to position or age with this pick, they went with the most talented player available. He's not a candidate to replace Ike Davis right now, as it'll be three or four years until Smith is on the major league radar. If the Mets are really impressed with him, he could be on his way to Brooklyn for the summer, if not he'll most likely be playing in the GCL. Smith is committed to USC, but his it doesn't appear as if his signability is a concern.
