Tucker had a major impact on the game with his loudest tool, his speed, setting the tone quickly. He beat out an infield single in the first and then stole second on a first move break, beating the throw from the first baseman easily. Then stole third on the next pitch without a throw and scored on a groundout. Again his speed came into play in his next at-bat as a he put down a routine sacrifice bunt and beat it out. Approach has been adjusted to allow his speed to work, but there is whip in his bat with some power upside. At short, lateral range is outstanding, arm strength in the game was just average, but arm still has a chance to be stronger. Lanky frame still has a lot of projection left to it.

Tevin Tucker has the kind of tools that make him a very projectable player going forward. During pre-game in and out showed ability to cover ground well with great lateral movement on balls both ways from short. Very fluid and loose exchange fielding to throwing and throws have some carry across the diamond. During game showed good extinct and reaction to get around the ball and play through it. He hits from slightly open up-right stance, good rhythmic load that allows his hands to be explosive to hitting zone. He also has good speed that makes him a threat to take extra bases, definitely a fiery player that brings a lot of energy day in and day out.

Solid and smooth on the day was Tucker. Showing nice rhythm at the plate and a smooth stroke with strong and quick hands working through the zone and getting consistent barrel during his BP session. Defensively its athletic as he glides around the diamond moving around effortlessly with sound fundamentals. I have always thought that Tuckers best years are in front of him and that he could make a huge rise down the road and nothing deterred my thoughts after this event. Keep an eye on Tucker at WVU.

5.15.17: Hits from a slightly closed set up with hands above the shoulder. Works hands in load to strong position. Shows bat speed at the dish with free hands and good extension through contact. Nice rhythm on the day as he went 2-for-2 driving two balls, one through the gap for a double. Smooth actions in the field, quick first step and covers ground well.  Clean, quick exchange to throw, throws show some carry across the diamond. 4.59 on the turn on his double to the gap. A lot of projection in this athlete who will only get better. Great motor around the diamond, always moving around the dugout and stayed engaged in the game throughout a 11-1 victory.

8.4.16 - was one of the top pure infielders at the Future Games. Clean and confident actions, quick hands and smooth exchange with an athletic body. 3/4 arm slot and was 83 across the diamond. Ran a 6.71 60-yard dash. Smooth at the plate. Direct path to ball, slightly uphill. Solid foundation at plate and will get continue to improve there as he gets stronger.

10.31.15:  Hit from a tall stance that stood slightly open.  Tall hands with a smooth load back.  Controlled stride that gets back on line.  Good lower half turn the ball.  Maintains balance throughout swing.  Bat exit velocity of 79 mph.  Short, level swing path with good extension.  Line drive hitter with potential pull power.  Fluid rhythm.  Quality mechanics that should develop to an above average hitter.  Threw from a quick, high ¾ arm slot with some accuracy.  Positional velocity of 73 mph.  Decent hands with clean exchanges.  Showed some athleticism with his footwork.  Played through the ball.
