Perhaps most importantly, Smith has grown up right in the Mariners’ backyard, attending high school in Seattle and college in Spokane, Washington, meaning the M’s should be well aware of this. Of those, were out of college (either junior college or a four-year school), were out of high school, and Ariel Prieto was drafted out of Cuba at the age of
