Kyler continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did improve his foot speed at the event as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.39 runner. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a closed setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach.

Kyler is an athletic and talented 2024 SS prospect that worked hard worked that truly believed in the though process of get better every day. At SS, Kyler is on time with his pre-pitch movement, he presents a low/early glove, and has a quick first step to the ball. He plays through the backhand and shows range on both side of the ball. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Kyler starts in a squared stance, loads his hands back into the launch position, and hits off a firm front side. His approach at the plate is solid, he's aggressive on the fastball and has good pitch recognition. He showed this by going 4 for 6 with 2 walks. Kyler has a high baseball IQ and continuing to get bigger, faster, and stronger will make the sky the limit for this player. We hope to see his progress in the future.
