Drafted in the 5th round (133rd overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2004 (signed for $224,500)
While several Georgia Tech players underachieved with regard to the draft this year, Kown surged. He's a rare commodity in a college pitcher: a projectable, fresh arm. He's grown into his lanky 6-foot-7 frame and could add strength in the future. He came on down the stretch of his sophomore season and emerged with a strong summer in the Alaska League, where he was ranked the No. 6 prospect by Baseball America. Using a high three-quarters release point, Kown pitches in the 89-93 mph range with his fastball, touching some 94s, to go with a solid changeup. Kown could become a frontline pitcher if his inconsistent slider, which at times shows good depth and tilt, becomes a plus pitch.
