2015

2014

The Tigers selected Knebel with the 39th overall pick of the 2013 draft. A closer out of Texas, Knebel was immediately inserted into the same role for Low-A West Michigan after the draft last summer. He dominated the lower level, picking up 15 saves with a 0.87 ERA and 41:10 K:BB ratio in 31 appearances. With good size (6-foot-3, 210 pounds), a strong arm (his fastball tops out at 98 mph) and a wipeout slider, Knebel has the goods to be a closer at the major league level one day. The 22-year-old righty will have to prove himself at the higher levels of the minors to start the 2014 campaign, but hes considered to be on the fast track to the majors. Once he does arrive to the show, Knebel will have an opportunity to work high-leverage innings late in games, perhaps making his case to replace Joe Nathan upon the conclusion of Nathan's deal with the Tigers after the 2015 campaign.
