King has all the things scouting directors love, as a 6-foot-4 lefthander who pitches in the low to mid-90s. Possibly the best lefthander in the junior college ranks, King is a strikeout pitcher, pitching off his fastball and putting hitters away with his slider. He also throws a changeup. He's athletic on the mound and still has projection. His delivery is somewhat unconventional and causes him to be erratic at times. The question with King, at it is with most juco pitchers, is whether he will throw enough strikes. His K/BB ratio this season was close to 3/1. He will at least be given a chance as a starting pitcher in the pros. He's a freshman at Surry and relatively new on the scouting radar, and he wasn't drafted out of high school.
