01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament
Tyler showed some impressive tools at the UAAAPS Tournament including plus speed (6.58 in the 60) and the instincts to use that speed in games. He plays hard and aggressively, constantly putting pressure on the defense. Tyler gets excellent jumps and showed the ability to steal both 2B and 3B seemingly whenever he was on base. His approach at the plate is also aggressive, as he swings with intent and gets the barrel through the zone. His upper and lower body are well coordinated through the zone and he releases the barrel well while maintaining a quiet head. Defensively, Tyler patrolled CF well, using those speed and instincts to close on balls, and his strong arm (89 mph) to prevent baserunners from taking the extra base. Overall, this an exciting prospect who can stay in the middle of the field defensively and can impact a game in many ways.

Tyler is a young (2019 grad) R/R SS. Defensively, he shows quick/active footwork and is aggressive to come and get the GB. He is sure handed, gathers smoothly and has a clean exchange to fire accurate throws to 1B. He plays through the ball and gains ground toward his target. A long toss program will help to strengthen his arm which will aid in his development on the left side of the INF. As a hitter - Martinez has a square setup with fluid rhythm in his hands. He takes an aggressive hack with some bat speed and barrels the ball up, He is a line-drive type of hitter as he connects and hustles out of the box and down the 1B line. Only a 2019 grad - Tyler still has a ton of time to physically mature and develop his tools.
