Ken Giles’s height is 6ft 2in (1.88 m)

Kenneth Robert Giles (born September 20, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball (MLB). Exposed to baseball at an early age, Giles played it when he attended Rio Grande High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Although he was drafted to play baseball out of high school, he decided to enroll at Yavapai College, where he played until the Phillies drafted him in the seventh round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft. He quickly progressed through the Phillies’ minor league system, overcoming two oblique injuries to participate in major league spring training before the 2014 season. Although he began that season in the minors, he received a promotion to the major leagues in June, making his debut on June 12. One of the team’s few bright spots, Giles finished fourth in National League Rookie of the Year voting. He opened the 2015 season the team’s primary setup man, but when the Phillies traded their closer, Giles assumed that role. Renowned for his fastball that can reach upwards of 100 miles per hour (160 km/h), Giles is a power pitcher who pairs his fastball with a slider to compile high strike out rates.
