11/10/2011 - Pirate City Select Training - 2011
Tyler continues to show improvements in his game during his time at Pirate City. He improved his hitting, through a level swing path, quick hands, and decent bat speed. He allows his hips the come through, thus resulting in more pop off of the bat. Defensively, Tyler is fluid and makes the plays. He gets rid of the ball quickly across the diamond and makes accurate throws. Tyler will continue to improve as he works hard to develop his game.

Tyler is a thin, lanky SS who will graduate in 2013. On the INF, Tyler has a low approach, firm hands, and efficient footwork. He makes plays, takes okay angles to the ball, and his exchange is clean. Tyler has a long arm action, and he throws with accuracy to his target. If Tyler can play more through the ball, and loosen his arm action, defensive abilities can improve. At the plate, Tyler has a square set-up, a short stride, and good balance. He has average bat speed, he stays on top of the ball, and he swings in good rhythm. If Tyler can stay short to the ball, and spray more to all fields, average hitting numbers can rise.
