10/20/2013 - College PREP - Louisville, KY Tim is a lean 2B/RHP that will graduate in 2014. At 2B, feet are active as he works to square balls up, displaying clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to increase foot quickness, play through balls more and present hands out front. At the plate, Knieriem shows a squared setup with balance. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he learns to get his stride foot down to work on time and keep his hands inside the ball to use all fields. Power numbers will continue to increase as he learns to load more and use his lower half through the swing. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 68-69 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained through a long toss program. Tim has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
