[Interview] Tanner Myatt looking forward to a healthy 2020

This Interview was originally published on November 9, 2019

Back in 2018, the New York Yankees selected right-handed pitcher Tanner Myatt in the 11th Round of the MLB Draft out of Florence-Darlington Tech in South Carolina. Myatt’s electric fastball stole the show as he has 22 strikeouts in the first 10 outings of his professional career.

This past season, Myatt battled injuries to his elbow and shoulder that caused him to go from the rotation to the bullpen with Low-A Charleston. Despite missing some time and having more walks (45) than strikeouts, the right-hander held opponents to a .157 batting average. He was a 3-3 with a 4.24 ERA and had three saves in 4 chances over the course of 19 games (3 starts)

Last week, I had the opportunity to talk to Tanner about his 2019 season, how he rehabbed from his injuries, the progression of his off-speed pitches, and much more.
