Right-handed reliever Tyler Knigge is having some solid success thus far in 2011 with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. In 14 games for the two-time defending South Atlantic League champions, Knigge has posted a 1-1 record with 2 saves, a 3.20 ERA and 19 strike outs in 19 2/3 innings.

A 12th round pick by the Phillies in last year’s amateur draft, Knigge made his professional debut as a member of the Gulf Coast League Phillies and later earned a bump up to the New York-Penn League’s Williamsport Crosscutters. In 11 combined games at those two levels, Knigge posted a 0-4 record with a 5.28 ERA.

The 22-year-old stands 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs around 220 pounds.

I had the opportunity to speak with Tyler recently about his draft process, his pitch repertoire, his family and plenty more. Check out the media player below to listen to the full interview.
