From the same high school that former Rays outfielder Rocco Baldelli attended, King has been a steady contributor for Boston College, pitching the last two seasons out of the weekend rotation. The 6-foot-3 righthander doesn't have overwhelming stuff, but he commands an upper 80s fastball with sink, touching 92 mph. King mixes in a short-breaking slider that is difficult to square up but not an above-average offering. He pitches to contact but is a plus competitor and has above-average command. King went 7-4, 3.21 with 58 strikeouts in 98 innings this spring and was a large reason why the Eagles made their first-ever NCAA super regional.
