02/04/2018 - National Tryout Plus - Houston, TX Tanner is a very young, talented two-way player who has advanced tools all over the field. His arm stands out (80mph raw velo) both on the mound and behind the plate throwing out base runners. He gains ground when receiving and sticks pitches in the zone. He is agile and athletic behind the plate to slide and block softly, keeping everything in front. At the plate, he takes aggressive swing with fast bat speed and shows pop to the pull side. His lower half works well to transfer power and he extends through contact to hit the ball hard consistently. On the bump, this right hander works with his tailing fastball up to 83mph and a 10-4 curve with good shape. He shows command of both offerings, working to both sides of the plate effectively and keeping hitters off balance. Tanner is an exciting prospect with lots of potential and a bright future.
