03/18/2012 - College PREP - Plainview (Lubbock), TX Tyler is a solid looking catcher that will graduate in 2013. At the plate, he shows an athletic stance with a short stride and good balance throughout his swing. He has good bat speed making consistent contact and gets good use out of his lower half. He gets good hand separation which allows him to drive the ball to the gaps. He needs to relax his grip a bit and have more pre-pitch rhythm to allow more whip in his hands. Behind the plate he shows soft hands to receive, a quick release, and good footwork to block and throw. He has some carry to his throws but needs to work on overall accuracy to second which will help lower his pop time. Tyler is a solid player that will continue to develop with hard work and a few adjustments.
