Strieby, a 6-foot-5, 235-pound first baseman, is off to another amazing start to the season in his first year at Double-A, batting .292 (62-for-212) with 12 doubles, one triple and 14 home runs. A Brier, Wash., native, Strieby has totaled 46 RBI, while drawing 41 walks and striking out 60 times. Strieby has been playing for the Erie SeaWolves of the Double-A Eastern League, just a year after leading the Florida State League with 29 home runs in 112 games, despite missing most of August with a minor injury.
Following his monster season at high-A in 2008, Strieby was named the best power hitter in the Tigers organization by Baseball America, also earning Detroit Tigers Minor League Player of the Year honors.
A fourth-round draft pick in the 2006 MLB Draft, Strieby finished his UK career as a first-team All-American. Strieby helped lead UK to its first SEC Championship in school annals in 2006, leading UK in doubles (22), homers (20), RBI (77), total bases (164), on-base percentage (.473) and slugging (.704).
