Nevada ProCase Preview: Tyler Whitaker

Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

Tyler Whitaker comes into the PBR Nevada ProCase as one of the most sought after Nevada high school draft prospect in recent years with legit tools both on the mound and at the plate.  Offensively, he possesses an ability to drive the ball to all fields with impressive pull side power that he put on display for the Reds Area Codes team. The Bishop Gorman product has found a home, defensively, in the outfield with confident actions and present arm strength that should keep him in right field though his speed may allow him to transition to the premium position in centerfield down the road as he continues to gain comfort his new spot. Whitaker also has projectablility on his side on the mound where his fastball has been up to 91 mph just this last weekend with a breaking ball that shows late bite, working well off his fastball when he gets it out front. You can expect Whitaker to produce an impressive workout at the PBR Nevada ProCase and follow it up a successful high school leading into July's MLB Draft.
