SS Tyler Bell (Lincoln-Way East, 2024; Kentucky commit) was fresh off a standout performance at the inaugural PBR All-American Game. He hit leadoff and played shortstop for Sparks Jupiter. The switch-hitting shortstop took a majority of his at-bats from the right-side of the plate on Sunday and showed premium bat speed with the ability to manipulate the barrel. Despite recording just one hit on the day, Bell made for a professional look both in the box and at a premium defensive position.

9/23/23

Prep Baseball All-American Game: Starting in a slightly wide, open base, the natural switch-hitter utilizes a quiet, shoulder height pre-pitch load with a quick leg trigger. Short to the ball with a loose finish from both sides while creating loft with ease. Equally present bat-to-ball skills but boasts massive power potential from the left side. Plus bat speed with lean strength in the frame that continues to grow can allow Bell to carry a strong hit/power combo going forward. A true shortstop long-term with fluid actions in all directions and easy transfers. Plays confident and shows high, situational baseball IQ. Arm strength to make every play needed and can be accurate from multiple arm angles. 6.68 runner with a great first step and straight line speed. Showing the potential of a day one middle-infielder.

9/23/23

Prep Baseball All-American Game: MIF Tyler Bell (Lincoln-Way East HS, IL, 2024; Kentucky commit) is another all-around impressive athlete, and all of his tools scored higher than the All-American average. He boasts an impressive set of tools which rank in the 76th percentile, about 11% higher than the All-American average. His average bat speed of 77.8 mph helps him stand out and it is 22.9% better than his peers who played in the game. Bell’s Edge Score (81.88) and jump height (35.26 in.) each stand out above the average as well.

8/23/23

Quietly, the Kentucky commit was outstanding in multiple facets of the game throughout the week. Flashed 60 grade run times down the line (4.08) and jumped all over a first-pitch fastball for a pull-side grand slam. Switch-hitter, but Bell is more advanced from the left-side with ability to create leverage with ease and present bat speed. Soft hands with impressive footwork and range makes me believe that Bell will stick up the middle long term as well.

6/19/23

Bell is quickly solidifying himself as a name-to-know 2024 grad on a national scale, riding a red-hot spring to land himself on our first team all-state. The Pittsburgh commit was the catalyst for a Lincoln-Way East team that spent a large chunk of the season towards the top of our Illinois' Power 25, slashing .446/.577/.843 with nine doubles, six triples, and nine home runs. Bell drove in 46 runs and scored 54 times on his own, walking 36 times while also chipping in 32 stolen bases. He did all of that while also being an asset defensively, starting at shortstop for the Griffins and playing it at an advanced rate. Currently the No. 2 overall 2024 graduate in Illinois, and No. 69 nationally, Bell should draw plenty of professional interest throughout the summer circuit and into next spring.

5/13/23

Pittsburgh commit, currently ranked No. 2 in the Illinois’ 2024 class. Switch-hitting shortstop came into the game as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning due to Senior Day. Immediately made his presence felt with a clutch one-out double down the right-field line and he would later come around to score. He came up again in the bottom of the seventh and drove a pitch to center field which was deep enough for a walk-off sacrifice fly. Yet another quality look at one of the top juniors in the state.

4/24/23

Pitt commit. Currently ranked No. 4 in the state, No. 154 nationally. Projectable 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame, still has plenty of maturing to do physically. High-level defender up the middle with soft hands and athletic actions. Showcased ultra quick hands on transfers with and a clear overall feel for the position. The switch hitter showed similarly quick hands at the plate, seeing all of his at-bats from the right side. His swing is quick and direct to the ball, utilizing a fluid load and hanging his foot to stay on time before firing through the zone. He finished the day 1-for-2 with a double and two walks. High-level switch-hitting middle infielder that will certainly look to remain on the dirt moving forward.

4/15/23

Pittsburgh commit. Currently ranked No. 4 in the Illinois’ 2024 class and No. 154 Nationally. Continues to impress with his advanced all-around skill set everytime we see him. Switch-hitting catcher, listed at a strong and athletic 6-foot-1, 180-pounds. Started at shortstop and hit in the two-hole. Has been one of the main catalysts offensively for the Griffins all season long. Made all the plays at shortstop look routine on the day. Also, if intentional, showed high baseball IQ, letting a line-drive drop out of his glove with a runner on first base, ultimately leading to a 6-3 double play. Plays with controlled pace and tempo, advanced body control and feel for the middle infield. Soft, confident hands, adjusted to a number of tough hops with ease. Arm plays strong and accurately with carry across the diamond. All the tools to stick on the left-side of the diamond moving forward. Offensively, only hit from the right-side of the plate. Short, direct, strong swing, stays through the zone a long time and uses the big part of the field. Finished 2-for-2 with a loud, two-run home run to center field, two runs and two walks. High-level 2024 prospect in the state of Illinois.

3/02/23

INF Tyler Bell (Lincoln-Way East), a Pittsburgh commit, made the Illinois State Games his coming out party last August and skyrocketed up the 2024 Illinois board as a result. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound switch-hitter swings a mature  bat from both sides of the plate, with loose athletic hands and easy effort throughout. Bell creates easy bat speed, natural loft off the barrel and works to both gaps. Throughout both rounds of BP, from both sides of the plate, Bell peaked at 99.3 mph, averaging 91.6 mph with his furthest batted ball traveling 350’. Bell also led the loaded field with an average bat speed of 79.6 mph. On top of the offensive prowess, Bell is one of the top infield defenders in the state with smooth, confident, easy actions and a strong arm that plays true with life across the diamond at 90 mph.

8/10/22

Arguably the top prospect in attendance, regardless of class, was INF Tyler Bell (Lincoln-Way East, 2024; Pittsburgh commit). A high-waisted athlete that’s 6-foot-1, 170-pounds, the switch-hitting Bell displayed a silky-smooth swing from both sides of the plate throughout the event, hammering balls off the barrel with gap-to-gap feel. He’ll grow into more power as he fills out his frame, and Bell owns one of the highest offensive ceilings in his class. Defensively, Bell’s sure-handed actions and arm strength should keep him on the left side of the infield long term. Expect him to be a high-end name in the state’s 2024 class throughout his amateur career.

Switch-hitting Pittsburgh commit, Tyler Bell (Lincoln-Way East), is another impressive infielder with the tools to stay on the left side of the diamond for the long haul. The 6-foot, 170-pound Bell ran a 7.13, was 88 mph across the infield, and he made the infield defensive portion of the event look easy with clean and efficient actions and minimal effort. He looks equally as potent from both sides of the plate with an easy, loose swing with some strength through contact. Impressive 2024 infielder.

A 6-foot, 160-pound switch-hitter, MIF Tyler Bell (Lincoln-Way East, 2024) offers noteworthy upside on the diamond. Bell swung it well from both sides of the plate yesterday, working uphill to the baseball and controlling his body well through contact. His glove looked the part defensively, comfortably roaming around the infield with light feet and sure hands that play. He also topped at 80 mph across the diamond from a loose, clean arm capable of working from multiple angles and slots.
