07/28/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Tyler is an athletic catcher with good skills who will graduate in 2019. Defensively, Tyler sits is athletically, he presents his glove well, and his feet are quick/active. He gains ground, his exchange is quick, and throws with accuracy to 2nd base as low as 2.03 seconds. Abilities behind the plate can continue to improve if Tyler can square up his set-up, shorten his exchange, and add further arm strength. At the plate, Tyler has good balance, a square stride, and fast bat speed. He swings in good rhythm, has a direct barrel to the ball, and he hits with some pop to all fields. If Tyler can stay short and rotate his hips more through the ball, solid hitting can get even better.
