Scouting Tyler Clark

Connecticut Tigers relief pitcher Tyler Clark joined the organization after being selected in the 24th round of the 2010 MLB draft.  He posted a 4.97 ERA in 38.0 innings this season as a junior at Missouri, while racking up 43 strikeouts.

Missouri assistant coach Tony Vitello says Clark throws a heavy 89-94 mph fastball with late life.  He also throws a lively two-seam fastball and a changeup that Vitello describes as a devastating pitch at times.

Clark is still trying to find a breaking ball he feels comfortable with.

“Tyler is at his best when he keeps things simple, works quick, and takes on a bulldog mentality,” Vitello said.

Vitello says Clark thrives on adrenaline, so he seems like a pitcher with the makeup to be a high-leverage reliever.  He figures to be an important cog in the Connecticut Tigers bullpen this season.
