The 6-foot-4, 200-pound right hander looked tired and was knocked around a bit during his one inning, 35-pitch appearance in Bluefield, W.V. Able to land just his fastball for strikes, he allowed two runs on two hits and two walks. His 93-96 mph heater lacked command and his usually reliable low-80s slider spun tight, but missed the zone frequently. He also tried to work in a low-80s changeup with spin rates in the 1800s.

Standing 6-foot-3, 195-pounds, Tidwell is an athletic bodied right-hander with wide shoulders and a potential workhorse type of power arm. His fastball topped at 95 mph on this look, but there is much more in the tank. He has a short stride, upright delivery and uses his lower half very little. He attacked the strike zone with good down plane from a high three-quarter release point and flashed a plus, hard curveball at 80-82 mph with 11/5 rotation, finishing with late action and quick depth at the plate. Tidwell also showed the ability to manipulate the breaker into a more slider-shaped chase pitch at the same velocity, as well as changing the shape vs left or right-handed hitters. As a third pitch, he mixed in a very low-spin changeup at 82-83 mph with spin rates in the 1100-1200 rpm range due to big hands and a wide grip. Potential 1st round prospect for the 2023 draft.
