Starting Pitcher | Lethbridge Typhoon
His fastball gets into the high 80s, but it's the sink that makes the pitch effective. The Lethbridge Typhoon hope he can work on his control a little bit. Every once and a while one slips away from him and either ends up at the backstop or in the right field bleachers. He attacks lefties and righties with similar success.
Defense & Hitting
His pickoff move is only fair. He tends to fall off slightly to the first-base side of the mound, making him vulnerable to bunts toward third base. He makes up for that minor flaw by being aggressive in fielding his position. Tieman is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Tieman has some pop in his swing.
Tieman flat-out isn't ready for this level of competition. Expect the Lethbridge Typhoon to send him down promptly. But if you ask me, I'll pass on Tieman.
