    The younger brother of Indians top pitching prospect Triston McKenzie, Tyler is an athletic, up-the-middle prospect with good running ability and defensive instincts at shortstop. A 6-foot-1, 160-pound righthanded hitter, McKenzie lacks strength now,has a light bat and will also need to improve his arm strength in order to make the plays necessary to stick at shortstop at the next level. After hitting well during Perfect Game’s Jupiter showcase last fall, McKenzie turned heads and got scouts excited, though this spring his offensive performance has been more inconsistent. He has plenty of twitchy athleticism, but due to the question marks around his game and concerns about his swing-and-miss tendencies, McKenzie might wind up on campus at Vanderbilt.
