07/26/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City Tyler is an athletic middle infielder who also pitches. He cut nearly a half second of his 60 yard dash since we last saw him, coming in at a 7.27, which is great for a rising freshman. In the infield, he has firm hands, active footwork, and shows playable range while fielding from an athletic position. He can work on improving his fielding position and fielding the ball more out front. At the plate, he has a good setup, good balance, and fast bat speed. He shows lots of power potential in his swing if he can stay consistent with his swing path. Areas to work on for improvement are pitch recognition and using his lower half more. On the mound, he gets to a good balance point and shows a good tempo. He has a lot of movement on his fastball that could only get better with more extension. With more time on the mound, better finish of his pitches, and a more consistent breaking ball, Tyler will be a nice option on the mound in the future as well. Tyler was one of the better athletes at the event and with more experience, he will only continue to improve.
