Great pick! Probably should have gone higher.

Since people wanted him in the 3rd, I'm going to guess this is a good pick. Ranked above 146 and all.

Like the skillset that you read in the scouting reports and like that we appear to have at least one guy who will for sure make it out of SS ball!

Summary :
King has been a consistent offensive performer in college, playing in one of the country's best baseball conferences, although he doesn't have any plus tools and has a low long-term ceiling as a pro prospect. He loads early but pauses long enough that he's moving his hands forward from a stationary position, and he has minimal weight transfer over his front side. It's a rotational swing, though he still needs to generate power from his upper half because of the short stride and lack of weight transfer, smoother with better follow-through left-handed than right-handed.

He's an average or slightly below-average runner, almost certain to end up in left field where the offensive threshold to be a regular is higher than in center, and the most likely outcome is that he ends up a little below that mark.

King is a solid college performer with good tools across the board. His best tool is his bat, and he has the chance to hit for both average and power. He has tremendous bat speed with a short stroke from both sides of the plate and the ball carries off his bat. He's a solid average runner who might be better suited for a corner outfield spot and that could mean left given that his arm is his weakest tool. It's his bat, though, that will get him drafted, and he might have enough to be taken off the board in the first few rounds.

The #Mets take #KState OF Jared King in the fifth round. King has very good pop, actually think he's better defensively than some think.

Frankie Piliere: There's my guy Jared King. Stocky guy, compact swing, pretty good athlete. Consistent bat from both sides. I would have taken him about two rounds ago


Quote:
Kendall Rogers: I'm with the Frankenstorm on King. I also think he's a pretty good center fielder. Obviously, the Mets took him as a LF, but he's much better defensively than people make him out to be.

Frankie Piliere: Just a really good bet as a switch hit bat - very consisten
