Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

Total professional at-bats: .



A switch hitting third baseman with some pop in his bat, Tiger prospect Jason King holds significant offensive promise in a system that's overwhelmingly pitcher-heavy at the moment. A bit of a forgotten man thanks to a couple of injury-plagued college years, King still projected as an impact bat for the Tigers, who drafted him in 2011's 4th round. He's got a good all-around toolset without any one standout ability, but he does look competent at third base, a relatively new position for him, and his patience and batting eye look high quality. A slow-mover, developmentally, King will likely touch high-A in 2013, but doesn't seem ready for AA just yet.
