01/13/2017 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament
The UAAAPS Tournament was another excellent event for Angel. The 2-way player is talented in all facets of the game, though it appears that his biggest upside is on the mound. As a RHP he featured a heavy, sinking fastball that lived in the 88-90 mph range. He gets excellent plane to the pitch and throws it to both sides of the plate. His delivery is balanced and under control with a slight coil and go move that hides the ball well from hitters. His breaking ball is an extremely effective 2-plane breaker with depth that is used as an out pitch. He allowed only 1 hit while striking out 10 in his outing. As a position player Angel has leverage power in his right-handed stroke making loud contact with the ability to drive the ball to all parts of the field. He is also very capable at 1B providing a good target and showing dependable hands. Overall, Angel is an extremely talented 2018 prospect with a strong frame and the ability to impact the game in a number of ways.
09/17/2016 - 2016 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures East
Angel is a physical 6'2"/220 2-way player as a RHP and 1B. On the mound he has an under control delivery with a slight coil at the top that helps him hide the ball well. His fastball is very heavy with late running action. It is a very tough pitch to square up and results in lots of weak ground ball contact. His breaking ball complements the FB well with late 11-5 shape, and he throws it for strikes. As a position player Angel has leverage power from a simple stroke and it was on display with a line drive double that rattled the LF fence in the game. He also is very capable at 1B with sure hands and a good feel around the bag. It will be interesting to see Angel's ultimate spot, though it currently looks like the ceiling is a bit higher on the mound.
09/19/2015 - 2015 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures East
Tiburcio featured an advanced combination of feel for hitting and fastball velocity, making him a legitimate two-way prospect. He stands a solid and strong 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, and uses that size and strength to impact the ball at the plate. His stroke is simple and easy, with rhythm to his prep action and overall stroke. He showed excellent ability to see and react to off speed stuff, with an instinctual ability to deliver the barrel to a variety of pitches in multiple locations. He combines feel for hitting with the requisite speed and strength to give him one of the better hit / power combinations in the 2018 class. On the mound, he threw a heavy fastball in the 85-87 range and spun a low-to-mid 70s breaking ball. He repeated his delivery well and threw a high volume of strikes. Overall, a talented two-way player with high-level talent both ways.
