RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Knebel is an explosive right-handed relief pitching prospect, featuring a mid-90s fastball and a plus curveball. He came to Texas from Detroit in the Joakim Soria trade, but was shut down less than a month later with a sprained UCL. In 54 innings last season between Double-A, Triple-A and the majors, Knebel recorded 74 strikeouts with 17 walks, demonstrating why he profiles as a high-leverage option. He pitched 8.2 innings with the Tigers prior to the trade, but was not featured in the major leagues with Texas, but that should change early in 2015 if he is fully healthy. Traded to Milwaukee in January, Knebel could emerge to take on a prominent late-inning role with the Brewers if his elbow woes are no longer an issue.

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.
