BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Tyler Bortnick was acquired from the Rays for Ryan Roberts in a deal at the 2012 deadline, and his blend of patience and speed could start delivering positive equity on the D-Backs' investment by 2013.
2011 A 16th-round pick in 2009 out of Coastal Carolina University, Tyler Bortnick is more blue-collar than blue-chip, a grinder who has put up strong numbers in his first two professional seasons. In 2010, he moved back to his college position of second base after holding his own at shortstop during his pro debut.
2010 A 16th-round 2009 pick out of Coastal Carolina, Tyler Bortnick played second base in college but fared well upon being moved back to shortstop during a strong pro debut. His tools aren't outstanding, but he has no glaring weaknesses either.
