|2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Kevin Ziomek. Everytime I check the box scores for West Michigan, he seems to strike out alot of guys, limit the hits but the walks seem to be high from game to game. Is this an example of a guy whos stuff is just to good for the league? What do you ultimately see him as, and what does his repetoire consist of?|

|Like most of the WM rotation, he is too good for the league. However, I've soured a bit on him since the beginning of the year. His fastball velocity is too often 88-89 instead of 90-91, and the mechanics can get out of whack. He has trouble repeating his arm slot, and the breaking ball isn't a true out pitch. At peak, he may have three big league average pitches, but it's going to hinge on fastball command. (Jordan Gorosh)|

|Detroit grabbed Jonathon Crawford (rhp, Florida), Kevin Ziomek (lhp, Vandy) and Corey Knebel (rhp, Texas) with their three day one selections, and all have their share of evaluators who feel they are bullpen arms long term. Ziomek is still partaking in college ball (Super Regionals this weekend, followed by Omaha if Vandy wins) so his pro load will depend on when he signs and how many innings he's thrown. Knebel will flash "now" stuff that can get out MLB bats, but in my opinion is too inconsistent to be trusted with meaningful innings this year. He could be ready at some point next year. I'd assume Crawford was drafted with starting in mind. He'll need some minor league innings to try and find more command of his stuff--maybe a 2015 ETA? (Nick Faleris on the MLB Draft)|
