Tyler Esplin

Name: Tyler Esplin

Graduating Class: 2017

Position: RHP/3B

School: IMG Academy

Height: 6-2

Weight: 205

State: 67

The Skinny:
A fast-rising prospect in the 2017 class, Esplin has seen steady velocity jumps on the mound while showing some left-handed pop at the plate as a corner infielder. Over the summer, Esplin's velocity has climbed in the 85-87 range and it appears he is still filling into his 6-foot-2, 205-pound frame. Esplin attended Lake Forest Academy HS but will head to IMG Academy in Florida for his junior year.

Scouting Report:
Larger frame, solid build. Arm works from a ¾ slot, firm action. Fastball was 85-86 mph early then settled in at 81-84 mph, showed arm side run, typically left up in the zone in this outing. Threw a hard slider at 75-77 mph. Worked fairly easy, has shown good feel in the past. Showed improved velocity since last seeing him. (From game this summer)
