07/15/2013 - College PREP - Trenton, NJ Tyler is a solid, athletic catcher that will graduate in 2015. Feet are active, working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show in the range of 2.24 with throws displaying accuracy / carry. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, West shows a squared / balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed and work through a level swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. For hitting grade to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the ball, to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. With 2 years to further develop, Tyler has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
