Kevin Ziomek, LHP, Vanderbilt
Class: Junior; Height: 6-3; Weight: 200
Drafted in the thirteenth round in 2010 by the Diamondbacks, Ziomek is averaging nearly a punch out per inning with solid-average control (3.04 BB/9), a skill that’s improved dramatically within the last year.
Projection: Along with the impressive K-rate (8.89 K/9) is the fact that’s it’s come against a difficult schedule, something not every lefty can boast. Once adjusted for park and schedule — thanks to CollegeSplits.com — Ziomek’s peripherals are even more impressive: 9.29 K/9 and 2.88 BB/9. He’s not an elite prospect, but he’s right up there with Gonzaga’s Marco Gonzales.
Ceiling: 2.0-win player
Likelihood of Reaching His Ceiling: Moderate
Drafted: Late First or Second Round
