By Dan Hasty
5. 3B/P Colt Keith, Biloxi HS
Rank Among Tigers 2020 Draftees: #3
Projected Tigers Prospect Ranking: #16
Keith, who most figured would attend Arizona State, was drafted by the Tigers in a final-round coup to inject a fantastic hitter at an extremely young age into their system. In past years, Keith would immediately become a Top-10 prospect. This year, the two-way talent slots in #16 and indicates improved depth in a farm system that badly needed high-upside ability beyond their top-tier of prospects. If any pundits had yet to be impressed by the Tigers’ draft, the selection of Keith turned the final few into believers. The former Gatorade Player of the Year in Mississippi will need fans’ patience to develop, but his upside could make him worth the wait.
