07.17.18
Athletic 6-foot, 185-pound frame with strength throughout. The left-handed hitter flashed loud contact to his pullside during the BP round, and posted an 85 mph exit velo off the tee.  Tims has raw strength at the plate, he stands tall at the plate with his hands starting by his ear, he takes a smooth gliding step with his front foot, he stays behind his front side in a strong back leg, he keeps a tall posture with level shoulders throughout the swing, has a slightly uphill swing plane with a high finish.  Tims looks to pull the baseball, and takes aggressive swings at the plate. In the outfield he has a clean exchange into a small shuffle step with a long arm stroke to a high ¾ release. He made accurate throws to the plate, and topped out at 83 mph with effort involved. Tims ran a 7.54 60-yard dash. Tims has raw tools, and a high ceiling that he has yet to reach.

Tims has a strong, athletic 6-foot, 185-pound build. From the left side, he flashed power to the gaps in batting practice with backspin and lift; recording an exit velocity of 85 mph. Starts from a neutral, stacked stance with his hands set in a high position. Simple load, making his initial move by gliding forward, walking away from his hands, landing balance with good separation. Transfers his weight with ease as his back leg fires efficiently to get off his backside as he delivers the barrel. Solid strength in his hands, hard contact, uses the barrel efficiently and effectively with gap power and more to come in the future. In the outfield, Tims made accurate throws to the dish with a top velocity of 82 mph from a short, high-¾ slot with a max effort arm stroke. At first base, Tims has quick footwork and moves well around the bag, can throw from different slots with accuracy to start the double play at second base.

A two-way player and left-handed pitcher, Tims works from a ¾ arm slot with smooth rhythm and works in-line to the plate. His fastball was 76-78. He located his sharp breaking ball with tight spin and an 11/5 shape down in the zone and flashed the ability to throw that as a put away pitch.  His changeup was 65-66. Tims should continue to mature into his frame, and he flashed exciting tools that should continue to improve as he develops more physical strength.
