It's time to get down to the nitty-gritty. We started with 30 prospects to cover in our countdown of the Top 30 prospects. We've continued to cross names off and rattle off reports down to the Top 20, Top 10, Top 5, and now Top 3. Max Clark, the Detroit Tigers' first-round pick from the 2023 MLB Draft is at third on our countdown.

The Detroit Tigers went out and selected Max Clark with the third overall pick in the 2023 MLB Draft, selecting him as the first prep player off the board. The Franklin, Indiana native was heralded on the prep scene and was expected to be one of the first prep players off the board last summer.

He ended up being the first prep player off the board, and the Tigers have high hopes for the left-handed hitting outfielder. He's got a high ceiling with plenty of development left in the tank. He's got some time before he gets to the big leagues and gets his crack at big-league spring training, but for now, he's in Lakeland preparing for his first full season with the Tigers organization.

This summer will be a good gauge of where Clark falls in with the organization. He's an outfielder, no doubt, but it will be good to see how the bat plays in affiliate ball, off the backfields, getting him into the organization's different levels, and seeing how his development goes. For now, he's third on our countdown of the Top 30 prospects, so let's dig into the Indiana native's profile.

Detroit Tigers 2023 draftee Max Clark is third on the Top 30 list.
