Kenny Faulk
2013 Rank: 15
ETA: 2013
Position: LHP
Age: 25, DOB: 05/27/1987
Bats: L, Throws: L
Height: 6' 0", Weight: 235
Drafted: 2009, 16th (480) - DET
Scouting Grades* (present/future): Fastball: 5/5 | Slider: 4/5 | Changeup: 5/5 | Control: 4/5 | Overall: 4/5

Since coming out of Kennesaw State, Faulk has shown the ability to miss bats and get lefties out. That’s a recipe to get to the big leagues, though the Tigers left him unprotected for the Rule 5 Draft and he went unselected. Faulk has struck out 11 per nine innings in his Minor League career, serving as at least a part-time closer in 2010 and 2011. Lefties hit just .183 against him 2012, the second straight season he’s kept them well under .200. With a fastball, slider and changeup, if he can tighten his command a little, he can be an effective reliever in all situations. At worst, he has the chance to be a specialist in the future.
