I think we are all asking the same question: What is a wet burrito?
Well, it is basically just a normal burrito, but the outside is covered in red sauce and melted cheese. It's a delicacy in Southern California where New York Mets prospect Dominic Smith grew up. They have been one of Smith's go-to meals since he was a kid.
Smith was drafted with the 11th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft by the Mets, and was assigned to the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League for the 2015 campaign.
When he first arrived at training camp in 2015, he caught people's attention, but not in the way he had hoped. When Davis was drafted, he weighed 195 pounds, and at training camp he registered at 260 pounds. Yikes.
This offseason, Smith has already dropped 24 pounds by cutting out wet burritos and other unhealthy foods from his diet.
Durability is something Smith has said he wants to focus on, and he seems to be taking the right steps by switching up his eating habits. He said he feels much more comfortable now about his weight, and accomplished his offseason goal of becoming leaner and healthier.
Smith is set for Triple-A Las Vegas this season. Let's hope wet burritos aren't readily available in Sin City.
