PBR MO Uncommitted Spotlight: Tyler Leonard

By: Diego Solares
Area Scout, Illinois & Missouri

With the fall season coming to a close, our staff will take some time to highlight several uncommitted prospects over the next few weeks as we prepare to enter the baseball off-season and throughout. These players have all impressed our staff recently, whether it be at events, tournaments, or other up-close looks via our boots-on-the-ground coverage.

Today we'll shine some light on C Tyler Leonard (Staley, 2023), who's a physical right-handed bat that caught our staff's attention a few times in 2022. We first saw Leonard this year at the Prodigy Scout Day in February, where he reached a peak exit velocity of 94 mph and repeated hard contact off the barrel from the right side. He translated that inherent strength to behind the plate, peaking at 79 mph on his firmest throw from the chute.

Leonard's bat strength showed in-game at Creekside, first at the Kansas City Program Invitational and then again at the Creekside Fall Championships. He hammered a handful of home runs and caught the barrel for hard contact as well.

You'll find more on Leonard below, and check out his player profile for a few videos from Creekside this summer, too.
