Rangers about to unleash some Smoak

Every year there is a prospect who everyone gets up in arms about and rushes to pick up in their Fantasy Baseball League because he’s the next big thing.
Last year it was Chris Davis. How’d that work out?
This year, it’s Justin Smoak.
Smoak, the Rangers first round pick in 2008, was hitting .326 at Oklahoma City. He had reached base at a .476 clip. Smoak is a switch-hitter with discipline at the plate whom the Rangers expect to hit for power. He has two homers at Oklahoma City, but none in the last 10 days.
Smoak has been called up to start tonight’s game. So tonight, we’ll start to see what made Smoak the #9 prospect in all of baseball.
If you haven’t done your homework on Sir Smoak yet, here’s a great post at Baseball Time in Arlington that will educate you on the kid.
