09/21/2008 - National Tryout - Azusa, CA Tim is a very strong looking athlete, whose low center of gravity makes him well suited for the demanding skills behind the plate. Tim shows an above average arm on his throw to second, making up top end velocity with quick feet and a short arm stroke. He has good blocking skills as he is quick to get down and up off his blocks. His good lateral mobility is due to strength in his legs and anticipation in his mind. He will improve upon his receiving skills upon working on his flexibility in his hip and leg area. Tim also shows versatility by performing well in the outfield. He shows athleticism in his first step and he reads the point of catch well. His range is good and it will benefit with the addition of some pre-pitch movement. At the plate, Tim has a quiet approach to the ball, making him efficient with his level swing and giving him good barrel accuracy. He has gap power and he uses his hips well to initiate the swing. An area of improvement for Tim is in his hands. Tim has a tendency to drop his hands just before he fires them, which can result in an upward, fly ball swing. In summary, Tim shows a lot of promise and will receive plenty of looks from college recruiters in the near future.
