Kieschnick's Stance...Projectable???

I don't know how many of you have seen Kieschnick's batting stance, but it seems eerily similar to that of Nate Schierholtz. I'm no expert, but his back elbow is even less elevated than that of Nate's and one of the things that has always concerned me about Schierholtz is that it doesn't seem like he has the stance to hit for power. After watching Kieschnick hit the homer tonight, I was blown away by his bat speed. But, is this a stance that projects in the upper levels or will he have to adjust? Off the top of my head, I can't think of any major leaguers who don't elevate their back elbow, so I would think that this will have to be addressed as he progresses through the system.
