 2020 Preseason All-State - CNY

Tyler Blake LHP / 1B / Cortland , NY / 2022

The lanky athletic frame is projectable at 6-foot-3, 170 pounds. Offensively- the left handed hitter works from an open stance. Quick direct path to the baseball. Displayed a consistent line drive swing by spraying the ball all over the field. Defensively- the infielder worked out at first base. Blake has low effort actions and throws from a high mid ¾ arm slot. Pitching- the left handed pitcher displayed a repeatable delivery and a live projectable arm. Blake improved from his last performance in the summer. FB peaked at 82 MPH from 78 MPH. FB has late arm side run and lives down in the zone. CB has a sharp late break and the CH is still developing.
