Tyler is lean, athletic OF/LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 60 time of 7.35. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, he continues to shine through a closed setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel through a line drive approach. On the mound, he continues to shine. Delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 75-76 mph. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard to fastball velocities. Control is outstanding as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Tyler has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
