12/14/2019 - Texas Regional Offensive Skills and Pitching/Catching Combined Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Tyler is a coachable RHP/2B prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. On the mound, Tyler gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a free arm and extends through his release, staying inline towards the plate. Tyler shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 52mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits from 48-51mph with 11-5 break. Long tossing to build up his arm strength can help Tyler improve as a pitcher. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a short stride. He is fluid getting into his load and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent contact and line drives. Tyler can improve as a hitter by taking a shorter swing to the ball. With six more years to develop, Tyler has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
