Drafted in the 2nd round (50th overall) by the Miami Marlins in 2015 (signed for $1,000,000)
Lilek came into the 2015 season as Arizona State's Friday night starter with the chance to be picked on the first day of the draft, but inconsistent outings early in the season knocked him back in the rotation and down draft boards. The junior southpaw is at his best when he's able to command his curveball, his best secondary pitch, and keep hitters from cheating on the fastball. His slider isn't far behind and is also sharp when he commands it. His fastball sits 88-92 mph, touching as high as 95. Lilek has a good pitcher's body at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds. Scouts note that Lilek doesn't always take a competitive spirit to the mound, but when he's on, like in late season games against UCLA and Washington State, he resembles a first round talent. A strong finish could push the lefthander back up draft boards.
