Mets News: Mets reach a deal with First Round Pick 1B/OF - Dominic Smith

Mets News:

The Mets have reached a deal with their 2013 first round pick (11 overall) 1B/OF Dominic Smith.

Smith's deal is worth $2.6MM, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America (on Twitter).  That figure is just below the slot recommendation of $2.8MM for the No. 11 overall selection.

Smith, a high school first baseman out of California, is being advised by the MVP Sports Group.

ESPN's Keith Law ranked Smith as the No. 11 talent available, while Baseball America ranked him 14th, and's Jonathan Mayo ranked him 15th.  All three noted the tremendous upside of Smith's bat and his plus defense at first, with Law in particular noting how rare it is for high school first basemen to be this highly regarded because they're already at the bottom of the defensive spectrum.

Mets Chronicle reported last week that the Mets and Smith were close to a deal.
