Detroit Tigers should be high on prep player Justin Lebron.

Another prep bat that the Detroit Tigers really need to make sure they have on their radar is Justin Lebron. He's also another Alabama commit that could become easily signable with the drama going on with the Crimson Tide program—either way the Tigers need to consider Lebron.

Lebron is a product of Miramar, Fla., and has really been able to show off the tools from last fall until now. He's a middle infielder with a 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame with a ton of athleticism to get the job done at shortstop.

He projects to stick at shortstop for now with toolsy and athletic actions defensively, but at the plate, he's just as dangerous. Lebron starts wider with his hands up high before he makes his move through the zone.

He has a big stride forward to move through the zone and get the barrel on plane to drive pitches well. The right-handed hitter is extremely accurate with his barrel with tons of whip to the swing. He's able to produce a ton of hard-hit contact, including well-struck line drives.

Quick rotation, fast hands, and an in-sync operation make for a real fluid stroke from Lebron. He's got a ton of potential and is someone the Tigers need to be ready to pounce in near the back half of the draft.

As mentioned early on, Lebron is another Alabama commit, which could be problematic for the prep infielder in terms of his commitment. The team fired their coach, and this means there could be an increased likelihood of him signing out of the draft. The Tigers should have him on their draft board.
