Kyler is a lean and athletic 2019 catching prospect. Behind the dish, Kyler has strong hands and controls the ball when receiving. Kyler anticipates balls in the dirt and blocks the ball in a strong position with his lower body. He has a clean exchange and a quick release. At the plate, Kyler starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He attacks the inside part of the ball, shows barrel control, and the ability to create pull side lift.
