07/31/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1
Tyler is a very coachable, hard working player who worked out in the OF at Pirate City. Defensively, Tyler showed a good set-up, quick footwork, and he covers ground well. He is quick to the ball, he fields out front of his body, and he throws with average strength to his target. Offensively, Tyler has a tall set-up, he tracks the ball well, and he swing plane is level. He gets his hands into a good hitting position and he lets it travel well. With his work ethic, Tyler should have success this upcoming season.

Tyler is a lanky, athletic OF/2B that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.38 60 time. In the OF, he utilizes his quick / athletic feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work on getting behind more to play through and improve defensive grade. At 2B, feet are active as he works to square balls up, displaying clean hands. He needs to attack ground balls, play through, and present hands more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Neumann shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side as he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields and improving hitting grade. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Tyler has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
