Vanderbilt recruit. 6-foot-5, 220-pound right-handed pitcher, proportionally strong, workhorse-type build with broad shoulders and developed lower half. Threw a light pen at the Super 60 - clearly not going anywhere near 100 percent - but showed enough to state that he is healthy, has done significant work with his physical development and, above all, he very well could emerge as one of the premier power right-handed arms in the country in the near future. Brown seemingly was playing a leisurely game of catch at 90-91 mph, touching 92. The ball comes out of the hand effortlessly, the full-windup delivery smooth and under control, low-effort. Working from a high-¾ slot with a clean, short arm circle in back, his hand is quick and athletic out front; utilizes his extremely strong lower-half well. Filled up the strike zone with heavy, late finish. He threw two types of changeups, including a cut-change at 77-79 that had late heavy finish. He also threw an 85-86 mph changeup with fastball arm action and sink down in the zone. Brown didn’t throw a breaking ball at the Super 60, but it can be a swing-and-miss offering in the future.

2020 DRAFT:Tyler Brown, RHP, Vanderbilt- The Commodore's 6-foot-4, 240-pound All-American closer set the Vandy single season record with 17 saves last spring. Brown pitches in the 92-95 mph range, and will touch 97 on occasion as he did during last year's CWS where he recorded three of those saves. He will also mix in an occasional low-80s changeupand mid-70s fringy curve, but his calling card is a hard 85-86 mph slider which regularly shows above-average-to-plus. Brown is a strike-thrower (2.5/9 career BB rate) and has the makeup and mental toughness that is well-suited for the back-end of a bullpen. Brown started slow this spring with a 1-2 record and allowed 12 hits in 10.1 IP and was especially rusty with his command during opening weekend at MLB4 in Arizona. But, after a dominant 2019 (3-1, 2.19 ERA, 9 BB, 65 SO in 49.1 IP) and a summer stint with the USA CNT, look for Brown to be selected around the fifth round.
