Blue Jays select prep lefty Smith in Round 4

The Blue Jays continued to pick lanky high school pitchers with their fourth-round pick of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.

Toronto chose 6-foot-5 left-hander Evan Smith from Mary G. Montgomery High School in Semmes, Ala.

The 17-year-old senior topped out with a 93-mph fastball and an 80-mph curveball at the 2013 18U WWBA Memorial Day Classic in Fort Myers, Fla., in May, according to perfectgame.org.

Smith was among the best high school students in the Southeast United States, and was named to the 2013 Southeast All-Region first team.
