Official Scouting Report

  • C/OFPosition Projection

06/22/2019 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Tyler is an athletic and talented 2021 Catching prospect. Tyler is a coachable player that made several adjustments throughout the week. He starts in an athletic stance and shows a low target. He needs to continue to not manipulate the ball post impact and focus on just catching the ball. When blocking, he creates angles and puts himself in a strong position with his lower half. He needs to continue to lead with his glove and look to block the ball with his chest and not just his glove. He has efficient footwork, a clean exchange, and a quick release when throwing. At the plate, Tyler has loose hands, a middle approach, and hunts the fastball early in counts. Continuing to load his hands back into the drive position and getting into his legs will help him to hit the fastball consistently. He needs to quiet his head, create backside drive with his lower half, and keep his head down at contact. Tyler will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
