I talked to him a little bit ago, as you can imagine, he's pretty antsy right now.

The kid who beat him for the Brett Tomko Award, (best D-II pitcher), went in round 5 to Seattle, trust me, he saw that!

Tyler wasn't picked today, which was always the most likely scenario. There are many teams interested in him, everyone involved is convinced he'll be picked tomorrow, but beyond that, this could be round 11, or round 40.

I'll say more after the draft.

The Mets have followed Tyler the longest, starting his senior year in HS. The teams that had taken him the most seriously were the Mets, Yankees, Reds and Phillies, with a second group of Seattle, Toronto, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and the two LA teams...the Mets nearly took him a year ago.

I haven't talked to Tyler yet, but his mother is losing her mind.

Very happy for him, must be a surreal feeling right now. I look forward to hearing many updates as he goes through his indoctrination into professional baseball. I have to add I was selfishly rooting for him to get drafted by a team with a Midwest League affiliate for a possible future BF.net road-trip. Good luck to him!

In two days, Tyler goes to Florida for his physical, then he'll pitch for the Mets' club in Brooklyn.

His agent lives right next to the field in FL where the Mets will bring him, and his family lives on Long Island, so they'll all be able to watch him this summer.

There are many happy Badamos right now!

Congrats to Tyler, and thank you Splitter for keeping us up to date on everything throughout the process. I think we all learned a lot from your first-hand experience of helping him and his family.

A nice write-up on "The Man."

One correction to this article, for those who want to know - his father, Matt, had a stroke in early '09, recovered, and was in a serious car accident just before Thanksgiving in that same year. After six major surgeries, and months of "touch and go", Matt was finally discharged from the hospital, and sent to a rehabilitation center, for physical therapy - he was on schedule to go home April 9th.

While at the rehab center, Matt contracted a bacterial infection, which his weakened body could not defeat - the infection attacked his heart, killing Matt in March of 2010.

He was a great friend of mine, who had helped me out when I was down in 2002, so naturally, when I realized Tyler might have a shot at pro ball, I stepped in and helped every way I could.

I'm networked throughout the baseball industry, though I've never worked in the game - I did that via social media. I reached out to scouts, writers, coaches, retired players, and ultimately an agent as Tyler's college career was nearing its end. This is Tyler's story - he did it - and it didn't come easy. I'm just happy to be in the supporting cast, and I'd love to be talking to his dad about all of this right now.

The first batter Tyler faced as a pro...took him deep to lead off an inning.

He followed that with a pop out, a ground out and a K.

Mass, Josh called here today after that article posted, and we had a long talk about a list of baseball topics.

Tyler's doing great, the Mets have him on an innings limit, so he's not getting as much work as he had expected this season, but it's strictly because the Mets view him as a real prospect, so they're being careful with him. Tyler pitched to six hitters today - 5 Ks.

This level of baseball is tough stuff, the kids are living on next to nothing, while the get acclimated to pro ball, a long ways from home.

This whole thing has truly been an education.

Tyler has pitched pretty well so far, even if the numbers are small.

27 IP, 5 BB, 24K, 1.00 WHIP, 2.00 ERA

31 IP now and down to a 1.74 ERA, whip still at 1.00. Just as effective vs lefties as righties. Hopefully we'll watch him pitch to Monte Harrison and company down the road.

Thanks for the link, Mass. Josh and I talked about Tyler the other day - this is a big season for him. If T. puts up numbers, he has the opportunity to advance - the Mets didn't bring in any right-handed arms over the offseason, which most teams did.

For Tyler, the world is black and white - pitch well, and keep advancing, or don't, and go home. A kid that was a "senior sign" out of college doesn't get multiple chances to prove it, they have to put up numbers. Tyler certainly has the arm - I can't wait to see how he does this season.

Any update on Tyler? I couldn't find any stats for the 2015 season.
