Smith had an outstanding 2020 season, walking a ton, striking out little, and getting on base at higher than a .400 clip. The power he showed in his 54-game stretch in 2019 remained, and he ranked in the top 10% of the league in wOBA, expected wOBA, and expected slugging percentage. Given how the Dodgers play the entire season with an eye toward the playoffs, as well as the presence of Keibert Ruiz, it's possible that Smith may get more rest than other catchers this year. But that's a minor point against someone who should be one of the top options at his position. He's no worse than a top-five catcher, and there's a good argument that he should be the second player selected at his position.

Will Smith scores twice, knocks in a run on Monday

Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Will Smith went 2-for-3 a double, an RBI, and two runs scored as Los Angeles beat the Colorado Rockies 10-0 in Monday's Cactus League game.

Fantasy Impact

Smith laced a double and came around to score in the bottom of the third inning before singling in Elliot Soto in the fourth. Smith is currently the third catcher off the board per FantasyPros ECR and for good reason. He's still just 25-years-old and owns a career .268/.363/.574 slash line with 23 home runs and 67 RBI over 284 at-bats. He's also projected to hit fifth or sixth in one of the best lineups in baseball so he should see plenty of RBI opportunities.
