Tyler Townsend

6 feet 3 inches tall 215 pounds

Born – May 14, 1988

Outfield – First Base

Bats – Left

Throws – Right

Junior

Florida International University

Power     – + Potential, solid strong stroke and good stride/ transfer ( 20 – 30 Home Runs )

Contact  – Good but drops his hands which will lead to K’s and pop ups ( .270 – .290 )

Speed     – Average, will not help you on the bases but will not hurt you either

Arm        – Average

Defense – Limited range limits him to first base and right field, must improve to add left field to repertoire

Can mash the ball middle in and has big time power potential. Soft stride, good turn and hip flexion will allow his swing to create home run/ double power even with wood. He drops his hands slightly as the ball travels to home, that will lead to K’s and pop ups at the next level and must be altered if he is to live up to his Todd Helton like potential. His speed is negligible and his defense is lackluster but he can be plugged into right field without harming the defensive output. He could also play first base on a weak defensive team or left field on a slow one. He would be a 5 or 6 hole hitter on a Major Leage team.
