Dominic Smith named a 2015 Arizona League Fall-Star
By any measure, Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith has had a breakout season in the Mets minor league system.
He won the Florida State League Player of the Year award in 2015 after hitting .305/.354/.417 with six home runs and 79 RBI in 118 games. He missed time at the end of the season with a minor shoulder injury.
And that success has translated to a tremendous run through the Arizona Fall League in 2015 as well.
He is sixth in the AFL with a .400 batting average and a 1.132 OPS, he’s second in the league with 12 walks and a .542 on-base percentage, and 17th with a .571 slugging percentage.
For his efforts, Smith has been named an Arizona Fall League Fall Star in 2015, and will participate in the league’s All-Star Game this Saturday, November 7 at 8:08 pm ET at Salt River Field at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Smith, 20, is ranked as the Mets fifth-best prospect according to MLB.com.
