Carson Smith - You Can't Score On Him!

Here at More Hardball the sample size does not matter, be it large or small.  For example, Mariners relief pitcher, Carson Smith, has only 12 MLB innings to his name.  Yet, here I am doing a featured post on him.  Why?  Good question...

The 25 year old, 6'6" righty is having himself a helluva beginning to his career.  Over parts of 2 seasons he's appeared in 12 games, tossed 12 innings, struck out 17 batters, and allowed ZERO runs with a 0.67 WHIP.  That's pretty damn impressive.  He's averaging 12.8 K/9.

It took Carson only 3 minor league seasons to ascend to the Majors.  In Seattle's system, he averaged 11.2 K/9 and owned a 2.55 ERA in 155 innings.  This kid seems to have a bright future ahead of him, and before long the rest of baseball will be taking notice.
