PHOENIX -- When Will Smith reported to the Brewers' Maryvale, Ariz., spring training complex last week, he was about 20 miles from where he expected to be this February. Coming off a 2013 season in which he emerged as one of the most reliable arms in the Kansas City Royals bullpen, the 24 year-old lefty seemed ticketed for a spot in the Royals bullpen in 2014.
