Tyler Nevin is a prospect in spring training for the Baltimore Orioles this year. He had previously been in the Colorado Rockies organization after being a supplemental first-round pick the 2015 MLB Draft. His father, Phil, was also a first-round pick of the Houston Astros in 1992 and went on to play 12 seasons in the big leagues. He is currently in his fourth season as the New Yankees’ third base coach.
Tyler acquired his interest in the game as a youngster, hanging out with his father at the ballpark and keeping scores of games. He hopes to get a shot in the big leagues himself, perhaps as an opponent of his dad.
