BYB: Who’s a fellow player that has helped you along your career, either in West Michigan, Lakeland, or Erie?
Adam Wilk: I couldn't name anyone specific but many of the players have been very helpful in the transition to professional baseball from college baseball, especially the older players.
BYB: What have you been doing this off-season? Anything you’ve been working on to prepare for Spring Training.
Adam Wilk: I went back to Long Beach State to finish up my last semester of college and graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. I have been working out pretty hard along with getting my body and arm ready for another spring training and baseball season.
BYB: What kind of pitches do you throw and do you have a favorite go to pitch?
Adam Wilk: I throw a 4 seam fastball, a 2 seam fastball, a changeup, a curveball, and a cutter. I would not say I have a go to pitch because I am a control pitcher and confident to throw any of my pitches in tight situations.
BYB: Do you have any pre-game rituals and/or meals?
Adam Wilk: For a pregame meal I tend to keep it small on what I eat, normally a peanut butter jelly sandwich or a sub sandwich with some fruit. I would say most of my life is run through routines so I am weird when it comes to everyday living, but nothing changes on the start days. I do the same stuff everyday.
BYB: You’ve been moving up the Tigers farm system pretty rapidly, where do you see yourself this season?
Adam Wilk: I honestly do not know where I will start the season. It is up to the front office where they want to start me. I’ll give everything I have during Spring Training to give myself the best opportunity to start in Detroit, but ultimately the final decision is up to the organization on where they place me.
Thanks to Adam Wilk for taking time out of his busy days to answer some questions! Best of luck this season!
