Think I'm going to trade Caleb Smith and let another owner read this thread.

Get this man the respect he deserves!  Between 2018 and 2019 this is his line, which combines as a full season.   32 games 167.1 innings 3.71 ERA 1.12 Whip 198 k’s 1

Just an update, Smith pitched in a rehab game tonight.  He tied the Southern League record with 8 straight Ks!  Overall, only pitched 4.1IP, 2 solo HR, 11Ks!  While they may still have him make anothe

Looking like:

vs. Cin

@Was

vs. KC

vs. Mil

@Ari

vs. Was

@Phi

 

to close out the year. Been beaten up by Washington, Milwaukee, and DBacks this year. Looked good in his starts against the Phillies and KC is always a good matchup. Really gotta decide if it's worth it to toss him out there in those tough games at the point.

Although I’m in a keeper league, I’m strongly considering dropping him for needed bench or streaming options.

 

He had a good run and is definitely a promising young SP. I’ll look to have him on my team next year but I can’t keep him and his end of season doesn’t look like it will end well

Uhh if you drop him someone else will pick him up and scoop him. This guy has a top 5 SP ceiling. I don't know how deep your keeper list is and what not but u should probably ride it out and keep him.

Not seeing the top 5 upside.  He's a good pitcher, but I don't ever see him entering the territory of Scherzer, Verlander, DeGrom...  He's definitely not a "set and forget" guy.  He's also 28 years old already.  It's not like he's a young promising phenom.

Max Scherzer is 35 years old. Caleb Smith has the best two seamer in the entire league. Have you watched him pitch? There's a reason he has one of the best swinging strike and k/9 in the league. He starts commanding his pitches better and he's an ace, easily. If he ever throws 200IP he'll flirt with 300 k's.

Hey, I hope you're right.  [...] I'd love nothing more than him to do that.  He has shown flashes of brilliance, but I'm at the "show me" phase right now where I'll only believe it when I see it.  I have not had the luxury of watching him pitch.

Smith is 28 years old with a career 4.30 ERA/ 4.45 xFIP/4.49 FIP. 

Top 5 SP upside?? 😂😂😂

You keep holding out hope. He’s just ok. Top 35ish SP.

Yeah time to peace out before he does more damage. Has given back much of his early season success in roto. Should've tried harder to trade him when he was killing it in the first half.

Same here. I really thought he was a legit top 25 arm. Oh well.

Had a great night tonight, 6 IP, 0 ER, 8 K's, and 1.00 WHIP. 

 

KC at home was a pretty amazing matchup. KC's lineup already is bad, take out a DH and put in a pitcher, and then play in Miami. Hope everyone started him despite recent struggles.
