Jeff Ellis: Jordan Smith is a sophomore third baseman from Divison II St. Cloud State. He is a solid hitter who is able to hit the ball to all fields. He recorded 11 assists in college and seems to have a solid arm. His ability to hit the ball all over led him to having the second best average in his schools entire history. He will more than likely end up in the outfield thanks to his arm. He is a player whose best skill is his bat and if he is able to make it to the majors it will be his skills as a hitter that continue to develop and push him up through the Indians system.
