Josh Smith just finished his second season in the Rangers organization.  In 2019, Smith pitched fairly well in the Rookie Leagues.  In 2021, Smith was excellent out of the bullpen at both levels he pitched.

At 24, Smith may need some extra time at A+ but should move quickly through the remainder of the Rangers organization.
