Drafted in the 2nd round (69th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1999 (signed for $800,000)
There isn't a sure first-round pick in Tennessee this year. The best hope was SS Brennan King, an outstanding hitting prospect compared by scouts to Travis Fryman and Dean Palmer. King missed much of the season after hurting his arm when he was not properly warmed up to pitch and felt a pop in his shoulder. He returned to shortstop by the end of the season but his arm strength had not fully returned, possibly knocking him down to the second round. King, a Mississippi State signee, projects more as a third baseman. He will hit no matter where he plays. His hands, arm and power grade out average or better. Speed is his only below-average tool; he gets to first in 4.5 to 4.6 seconds. If he could run faster, he might have been one of the top 10 picks in the draft.
