Inside The Ranking: 2025 LHP Tyler Maddix (Bishop Canevin)

Dan Cevette
President, NY/PA

In conjunction with our National and State Rankings being updated and released we will start to roll out more website content regarding the state rankings and a deeper dive into some of the players. Pennsylvania is a talent rich state and there is no service out there today that is scouting, covering, and reporting on more players than the Prep Baseball Report. 

Tyler Maddix LHP / OF / Bishop Canevin, PA / 2025

Coming in at No. 19 overall in Pennsylvania's 2025 class, Maddix surely has the stock to keep climbing. Standing 6-foot-0, 160-pounds, the southpaw offers all the fixings of a next-level arm. 

Things to like: The frame has room to lengthen out and add weight. The arm works pretty well, especially on the extension part of his front-side, it's fast with no restrictions. The arm-slot is just slightly above a high 3/4 and his FB (82 max) naturally has arm-side run / dive (spin is 2100). Velocity is good enough right now and his ceiling is lofty. There's already signs of spinning the baseball which is something I have always felt couldn't be taught. 

Things to work on: Slowing down. The fast tempo works well for some power arms but for Maddix he needs to slow down and repeat his delivery more consistently. His arm-swing has a little "stab action to it" on the back side which works fine but cleaning that up with a more fluid circle + length will help him as he logs more innings. 

The Future: Looks very bright for the lean Western PA lefty. I wouldn't be shocked to see the FB velocity really start to climb by the preseason/summer. He's a natural ATH (6.9 runner) so the sky really is the limit for him. Excited to watch him develop.
