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.
