Tyler is an athletic SS/RHP prospect with a baseball player's build who is a good teammate and a hard worker. He is a slick fielder at short who can make plays to both sides of his body and has plenty of arm to make strong throws from the hole. His feet work efficiently with good lateral agility as he uses his athleticism to show extended range and field balls athletically. His hands are soft to field and quick to transfer and release, making on target feeds and strong throws to first with plenty of carry. At the plate, he has an athletic, balanced setup with an on time stride and load to a powerful bat angle. His swing is fluid and on plane through the zone to make consistent line drive contact for plenty of base hits. On the hill, this right hander features a fastball that sits in the high 60's with tailing action that he uses to work ahead of hitters. His delivery is smooth and repeatable as he gets to a consistent release point to show control of his pitches. Working on strengthening his front side will allow him to stay in line to plate and free his arm action to add velocity and movement. Tyler is an exciting, young prospect with lots of potential on the baseball field.

Tyler is a right handed hitting shortstop who will graduate in 2020. In the infield, he showed solid footwork which allowed him to range to his right and left very well, along with sure hands which were presented out in front to field. Long tossing to improve arm strength will help to round at his game at SS. Offensively, he showed an athletic setup which allowed him to remain balanced throughout his swing, along with a firm front side in his lower 1/2. Hands worked on a direct path to the ball, however, getting his hands into a load position earlier will help with power to all fields. As a whole, Tyler is a solid young player with impressive skills, who still has much room to grow.
