Tyler Kolek is a 2014 RHP/1B with a 6-5 250 lb. frame from Shepherd, TX who attends Shepherd HS. Extra large, extra strong build, physical presence on the mound. Long cross body stride, long arm action with plus leverage and whip coming through, high 3/4's arm slot, arm works very well, shows athleticism in his delivery, could get directional better. Mid 90's fastball, topped out at 97 mph, gained velocity throughout his outing and was hitting top numbers at the end of two innings, mostly straight with occasional arm side run. Big breaking wipeout slider, very hard biting action at times, deep 12/6 downer curveball with different shape, tends to lengthen arm and extension on curveball at present. Elite level velocity and the potential for a plus/plus slider with refinement. Everything you'd want to see in a young power pitcher. Good student. Selected to the Perfect Game All-American Classic.
