Tidball has a major league plus pitch, an overhand curve ball that misses bats.  As a starter, he throws his fastball in the mid to upper 80s, a circle change and a two-seam fastball.

He throws across his body, which adds to his deception but inhibits his velocity and could cause arm problems.  He doesn’t maintain arm speed on his changeup.

The Future:
Tidball might have a future as a middle reliever in the big leagues.  He could be taken after the 30th round if he has a solid senior season.
