One of the best high school hitters in Kentucky history (his .510 career average ranks among the top 10 in state history), Tiberi has always hit, but finding the right pro position for him is a tougher call. A draft-eligible redshirt sophomore, Tiberi has answered some of the questions about his ability to stick at third base by doing a good job of tightening up his body. He is a thicker-bodied, stocky third baseman who has an above-average arm. He does a good job of charging slow rollers and throwing on the run. But Tiberi's inside-out swing, whole-field approach and fringy home run power doesn't fit the traditional third base profile. The lefthanded hitter has a long track record of hitting for average--he hit .315 in the Cape Cod League last summer. Tiberi's lack of plus power will cause him to slide despite his success in the ACC. Tiberi's body, arm strength and short-range quickness could entice a pro team to look at him as a catcher as well.

I wonder if we convert to catcher? That would make sense.

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 45 | Run: 40 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45

In his first two years of college, Tiberi had more success in summer ball than he did at Louisville. He redshirted in his first season with the Cardinals and played sparingly in 2015, but he earned all-star honors in the New England Collegiate and Cape Cod leagues. He led the Cape with 15.6 plate appearances per strikeout and finished eighth in the batting race at .315 last summer, and he has recorded similar numbers as Louisville's everyday third baseman this spring.

Tiberi has good feel for hitting and rarely swings and misses. The downside is that he makes contact so easily that he draws few walks, so his batting average will be more impressive than his on-base percentage. While he homered just once in 34 games with wood bats on the Cape last year, leading to some concerns about his power, he has driven the ball consistently as a redshirt sophomore.

Tiberi has below-average speed but has worked hard on his conditioning and his quickness at third base. He's a decent defender with good hands and an average arm, though he could be in trouble if he doesn't have the pop to profile at the hot corner. He doesn't have the tools for second base and the offensive demands would be even greater in left field.

I like his swing. The whole package reminds me of Daniel Murphy.

John Manuel (of BA) on Blake Tiberi:

Quote:
The main thing for him is he’s a left-handed power bat, and you’re really buying the bat, and it’s a matter of, do you think he can play third base? I guess it’s more of an all-field bat than a power bat. He hit in the Cape (Cod League) last summer, and he has enough home run power, you wonder if those type of guys will develop more home run power over the course of their career. He’s a bigger guy. You wonder if he has the requisite athleticism and agility for big league third base. That’s the profile of a Scott Rolen, Adrian Beltre, Evan Longoria. You think about playoff third basemen and the profiles of those guys, and you’re looking at Tiberi, and you’re like, he’s going to have to step up his game to be a third baseman long term if you compare him to the athletic ability of some of these other guys – Kris Bryant, Anthony Rendon – who are premier athletes. Maybe he’s more like a Travis Shaw, who’s playing third base for the Red Sox right now and really has some pop.

Oh, I'm sure we can find someone to say this.

I've already read reports that his power is questionable which lowers his value, and also that he has nice power potential.

Reading the scouting reports. Hit on every level. Hit even better with wood bats.

Was considered one of the best high school hitters ever in his state
