Noah's return! TTM #25/35
Corey Knebel c/o West Michigan Whitecaps in 6 days
Great success from another Team USA regular and the Tigers' first round pick this year (39th overall)! He flew to West Michigan to open the season, and has been lights out as a reliever so far. Over 14 innings, he has punched out 16, racked up 7 saves, and allowed just one earned run (0.64 ERA). With a plus fastball, a sharp curve, and a closer's mentality, Knebel could be one of the first '13 draftees to reach the bigs, perhaps remaining in the closer role.
