Pyles is another interesting prospect from Illinois. Standing in at a stout 6-foot, 200 pounds, Pyles generated the highest exit speed of the day (99.4 mph), averaging marks in the low-90s, connecting for the farthest hit ball of the day, measured at an estimated 379 feet. His setup was crouched with arm spacing and a somewhat closed stance, and his barrel set is more vertical and delivered with aggressive rotation and solid barrel feel, which resulted in high rates of line-drive contact.
