02/14/2010 - College PREP - Middleton, WI
Ty showed similar skills in Madison, WI as he did at the PC World Series. He improved in several categories including lowering his 60-time from 8.28 to 7.78. On the mound, Ty works on top of the baseball and throws downhill. He has a good release, life on his FB, and he makes good use of his lower 1/2. Ty's CH showed to be his best off-speed pitch and with better CB control, and more polished mechanics, his ability on the mound can improve. At 3B, Ty has soft hands, he fields the ball out in front, and makes plays on balls hit his way. He flashes a good backhand, and his throws across the diamond have life and carry on them. Offensively, Ty improved his overall hitting and power numbers from 42 to 45. He has a good set-up, his hands are quick, and he throws them to the ball. Ty works the ball to all fields, and with a better weight transfer and a more level swing, his offensive grades can further improve.

Ty is a young two-way player on the mound and at 3B with a solid, athletic looking body that shows projection as he continues to physically mature. Foot speed is well below average and he must get on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness for the next level. Feet are active but need to be more aggressive in coming to get and playing through ground balls with his feet and hands. Gove action is soft, clean, and sure in making the plays. Defensive abilities are near average at the corners in the IF. Arm strength is solid average through a quick arm action with throws showing some carry across the diamond. He will benefit by getting on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength, raising velocities. At the plate, hitting abilities and power are slightly above average through a balanced approach. Hands work directly to the baseball and he displays strength in his swing as the baseball jumps off his bat when centered. He has some mechanical flaws that are hindering him from reaching his full potential with grades improving with instruction and adjustments. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 76-81 mph. Breaking ball is flat and needs further development for the next level. He attacks hitters as he throws strikes with all his pitches. With 2 years to further develop, Ty has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
