A two-way prospect, Tarnok began taking steps forward on the mound this spring. He has a projectable 6-foot-4 frame with coathanger-like shoulders and room to fill. Tarnok has a loose, easy arm action and he's already capable of pitching in the low to mid-90s, touching as high as 96 mph. The pitch flashes late sink down in the strike zone. Tarnok flashes an upper 70s curveball as well that can generate sharp downward action. Tarnok has a long way to go to reach his ceiling on the mound, but he has the natural ingredients to develop into a starting pitching prospect. He''s committed to Division II Tampa.
