Coach Corbin Quote: “Tyler was inside the catching rotation last year and did a nice job with his opportunities. He continued to be the most consistent pinch hitter we had on our team last year where he showed ability to drive in runs with limited chances. His commitment to his offensive improvement is noticeable and he has a very high care level with his training. He has a very strong baseball acumen and enjoys studying the game. I think that he could become a very impactful teacher of the game one day. He will impact our team this year behind the plate and in the batting order.”
