King gets Draft call from Mets

Jared 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 solidly 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 got him drafted on Day 2.
