Notable: Tyler throws a fastball, curveball and change up. When the curveball is at its best, it features a 12-to-6-o’clock breaking action. … His most memorable games so far in high school have come against Cleveland where he relied on his curveball to get key strikeouts. … “I know getting in the best shape I can be in will be important to success in college,” he said.
Corinth Holders coach Adam Weaver: “He’s a 6-foot-3, left-handed pitcher, which is what college coaches are looking for. He does a good job of mixing up his speeds on pitches and is going to get stronger and hopefully that improves his velocity. He’s a smart kid who can do anything he wants to.”
