11/04/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures Texas Ty is an interesting mix of size (6'2"/205), strength (140/144 grip strength) and athleticism (7.00 in the 60). Those measurables point to an interesting future for a prospect who is still a bit raw, but showed some flashes at the BF UA Futures Texas event. Ty showed his strength during batting practice with some pull-side pop and a few loud shots off the barrel. There is some stiffness currently, but the eye/hand coordination appears to be there. Defensively, Ty has a good feel around the bag and shows some arm strength (87 mph raw arm velocity) when he throws to bases. He provides a good target at 1B for his infielders and showed some feel for moving to his backhand side. Overall, there is a lot to build on here - it will interesting to watch Ty develop over the next few years.
