Tyrus showed some offensive and defensive improvements during his time in Florida. He is a hard-working, coachable catcher with above average skills behind the plate. Behind the dish, Tyrus sits in well, tracks to his glove, and blocks consistently. He has a clean glove, a quick release, and an accurate arm to 2nd base. Offensively, Tyrus shows as a switch hitter. From the left, he has good balance, a rhythmic swing, and makes level contact using his lower body. From the right, Tyrus stands in athletically, has a good bat path, and he rotates his lower body through the baseball. He showed great leaderships skills throughout the event as well.
