Scouting Video: Tyler Lyons bullpen (Chatham Anglers)

August 19, 2009

If you compare this video of Lyons warming up compared to his in-game video from last March, it’s easy to see that he is healthier, stronger and more confident. While Lyons shouldn’t be considered a power pitcher, this does not mean that he should be classified as a junk baller. Lyons has better stuff than the vast majority of right-handers who threw in the same velocity range. And while he lacks one true premium pitch, he’s got enough to keep good hitters honest. Lyons is the kind of pitcher that you need to open your eyes on and not just sit back and point your radar gun. Along the lines of ASU right-hander Mike Leake, Lyons possesses all the indications that he’s going to be able to hang around the big leagues and be very steady. Time will tell, and if I’m right, you can say you saw it on Baseball Beginnings first.
