Tyler continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. Feet are active as he works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate with carry (80 mph velocity) to his target but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying solid hitting / power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach, flashing gap to gap pop.

Tyler is an athletic 2023 2-way prospect that was eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the week.

Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and creating backside drive with his lower half will help him work the ball gap to gap. On the bump, Tyler gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a strong glove side. He shows confidence and competes on every pitch.
