Colt Keith is one of Detroit’s highly regarded prospects

The Tigers took Keith with the 132nd overall pick in Round 5 of the 2020 MLB Draft, and his skill was immediately apparent.

Currently, he’s ranked the No. 1 overall prospect within the Tigers organization and has earned high praise from those who have worked with him.

“He’s confident he’s going to make it happen,” said C.J. Wamsley, Keith’s hitting coach in High-A West Michigan last season. “It’s special, it’s different. You don’t see that a ton to that magnitude. We’ve been fortunate to have a lot of guys with that mentality, but Colt goes above and beyond. I don’t want to say ‘above and beyond,’ but the dude goes hard.”

He hit 14 home runs and 50 RBI with the West Michigan Whitecaps with a .325 batting average in 246 at-bats prior to his call-up by the Mud Hens.
