Mets Minor League Report: Jared King

The Mets drafted the switch-hitting Jared King in the fifth round of the 2013 draft out of Kansas State. At the time, Baseball America’s Jim Callis praised the “value,” in the pick.┬áKing hit .266/.365/.347 in 63 games in Brooklyn this year with 15 doubles and one home run. At 5’11, 208, he played mostly leftfield for Brooklyn and four games in center. If he’s going to profile in a corner, at some point, he will have to start putting the ball over the wall.
