Hiles would have been one of the national leaders in innings pitched at Perfect Game/World Wood Bat Association events in 2003, if such a category was kept (it isn’t). He’s a physically strong, mature young man with a unconventional low ¾’s release point. Hiles was 86-89 mph in Fort Myers and we’ve seen him touch the low 90’s in the past. He gets extremely good sinking and boring action on his fastball, so much that he has trouble controlling the pitch at times. We also don’t keep track of broken bats at events, but Hiles has notched up a few pieces of wood. Hiles breaking ball is a 71-75 mph slurve from the same release point that has tight spin and good depth to it. He is a work horse type who seems to get stronger the more he throws and gets outs in a hurry when he gets tuned into the lower half of the strike zone. He’s signed to attend Tennessee Wesleyan U. He could end up being a mid 90s guy.

Hiles came into the Perfect Game National showcase with very limited pitching experience. His summer coach (former Major Leaguer Garth Iorg), tried him on the mound at the start of the summer season and immediately saw a low 90’s fastball and some pitching aptitude. It wasn’t a hard sell to get Hiles an opportunity to show his tools in Lincoln. What we saw was a strong, athletic pitcher, especially in the lower body, who threw from a low Danny Darwin/Andy Ashby style arm action and release point. Hiles showed very good, hard and late boring action on a fastball that touched 91 mph. When he got the pitch on the inside half of the plate it was definitely a bat breaker. Hiles other two pitches, a 73 mph curveball and a 79 mph change up were both at the raw stage, a result, no doubt, of his lack of mound experience and something to work on in the future. Tanner will got a lot of interest between now and next June. He's a good student as well.
