08/12/2018 - National Tryout Plus - Kannapolis (Charlotte), NC Tyler continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. He did show at 2B for the first time at the event. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.60 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. He presents a low target and sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body through the blocking process but needs to work on getting down sooner. Squaring up stance will aid in improving receiving / blocking skills. At 2B, feet are active as he works to square balls up. Glove action is clean but will benefit by presenting more out front. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are loose and he stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.
