Adam Wilk

 

I’ve been keeping my eye on Adam Wilk since he arrived in 2009 and blew through Oneonta and West Michigan with sub 2.00 ERA’s. His .814 WHIP and eye popping .9 walks/9 innings revealed his excellent control. However, we’ve had many pitchers through the years put up stellar stats in the lower minors only to hit a wall when they reached AA and AAA (most recently, see Jon Kibler). Last year, he fell back to earth a bit in Lakeland, “only” posting a 3.01 ERA, but was lights out in 3 starts in Erie.

Because of his continued success at each level, I’ve been oscillating back and forth over actually how bright his future is. Is he destined to be merely a long reliever or could he possibly be a bottom rotation guy? Or will he hit the wall like Kibler did? Whatever the future holds, he certainly is an intriguing figure presently, as we fans try to predict how our rotation will shape up in the next few years. JV, Max, Rick, Turner, Oliver, and then throw in names like Wilk, Crosby, Furbush, Villarreal, and wait for it…Cole Nelson – yes, you heard it here first. It’s an exciting time to be a Tiger fan. As they say, you can never have enough pitching!
