Born: May 17, 1994 in Tampa, Fla. USA
High School: Jesuit HS, Tampa
College: Vanderbilt
Ht.: 6'5" / Wt.: 217 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 11th round (346th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2016 (signed for $200,000)
As a draft-eligible sophomore in 2015, Kilichowski made it clear that he was not interested in signing professionally, and he did not sign after being picked by the Cubs in the 39th round. In a return to Vanderbilt for his junior season, Kilichowski battled injuries and inconsistency, and posted a 5.06 ERA over a meager 27 innings. At his best, Kilichowski commands a fastball that sits at 88-91 mph and mixes in an above-average changeup that shows exceptionally late fade. He has also thrown a low 80s slider and an upper 70s curveball. Kilichowski could be back for his senior year, as he is unlikely to get a high bonus after his poor season.
