Tyler showed solid defensive skills behind the plate and raised arm velocity during his last workout in Binghamton. Pop times also lowered to 2.13 seconds. Behind the plate, Tyler has active feet, a presentable glove, and he sits in low. He is a confident receiver, blocks and receives very well, and he throws with a short/accurate arm with strength to 2nd base. At SS, Tyler has good range, active feet, and he fields squarely. He makes plays, moves from right to left, and throws accurately across the diamond. At the plate, Tyler has an open stance, a square stride, and good balance. He swings with good intent, uses some lower body, and can spray to all fields. Tyler will need to add bat speed, sharpen barrel accuracy, and loosen his grip in order for hitting numbers to spike.

Tyler is an athletic 2024 catching prospect that was very respectful and worked hard all weekend. Behind the dish, Tyler works behind the ball and sees the ball into his glove when receiving. He needs to continue to be in a balanced primary and athletic secondary stance. Leading with his glove and being in a solid foundation with his lower half when blocking will allow him to control balls in the dirt consistently. Improving his hip mobility and anticipating balls in the dirt will improve his ability to block laterally. He needs to continue to exchange the ball in front of his body and create momentum in his lower half when throwing to the bases. At the plate, Tyler starts in a closed stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and stays balanced through contact. He rotates his back hip to initiate the swing and he keeps a level path to the ball. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, keep his head down at contact, and stay in his legs. Tyler did a good job in games and we hope to see his progress in the future.
