Corey Knebel gets the call from Toledo
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/14) The Tigers recalled reliever Corey Knebel from Triple-A Toledo Saturday, a month after his last stint with the team ended.

Knebel had a 6.75 ERA in 6 2/3 innings in his first run with the Tigers, but has a 1.96 ERA in 18 1/3 innings at Triple-A.

(6/15/14) Tigers reliever Corey Knebel has been sent to Triple-A Sunday.

Knebel was with the major-league club for a short period. He posted a 6.75 ERA over 6 2/3 innings with the Tigers.

Corey Knebel set to take leap to majors
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/14) Tigers premier bullpen hopeful Corey Knebel is set to be promoted before the Friday night game against Texas.

The 22-year-old Knebel will have spent only 10 days at Triple-A Toledo before making the ultimate jump. He pitched four shutout innings with the Mud Hens with four strikeouts in four innings.

Tigers short relievers, including closer Joe Nathan, have struggled at times this season. Knebel could slide into a short role upon his arrival.

Corey Knebel moves one step closer to majors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/12/14) The Tigers have promoted relief pitcher Corey Knebel from Double-A Erie to Triple-A Toledo after the 2013 first-round pick dominated hitters in the Eastern League. The right-handed pitching prospect was 3-0 with a 1.20 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, one save and striking out 13.8 batters per nine innings prior to his promotion.

"He’s a talent," Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila said, per the Detroit Free Press. "He’s got the mid-90s fastball with a real swing-and-miss curveball, and he actually even has a changeup that’s pretty good.

"But he’s still developing. People are always going to speculate how fast can he get here. We just have to let that develop and time will tell."

The Tigers chose to promote Knebel because they feel Triple-A will be more of a challenge for the fast-rising prospect.

"What he’s done at Double-A, he’s done very well," Avila said. "We felt Triple-A would be a little more of a challenge for him. Command of the fastball, refine that a little bit. Continue to throw the curveball and also throw a little bit more of the changeup."

Corey Knebel a future Tigers' closer or starter?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/1/13) Tigers' first-round pick Corey Knebel has been outstanding since joining the Class A West Michigan bullpen in June. The right-handed pitcher is 1-0 with a 1.06 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and .158 opponents' batting average in 17 relief appearances.

Knebel also has 10 saves and 20 strikeouts in 17 innings. As of now, he will continue to work as a closer, but the Tigers remain open to developing him as a starter down the road, per MLB.com.

"It's still up there, whether I'm going to be a starter or a closer," Knebel said. "Either way is fine with me. Right now, closing is what's happening.

"I love being a closer. I go in there knowing that, hey, if I give up a run, we lose the game. It's all in my hands. There's a lot of competition. I'm not relaxed, and that's what I like about it. I wouldn't mind being a starter. Starting is something I love. I did it in high school. I'm more relaxed when I'm starting."
