2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: A Naples (FL) native, Tillery stayed close to home, choosing to attend Florida Gulf Coast. He played both ways. In 146 games over three years, he hit .279/.344/.367 (.711) with 17 doubles and eight homers. On the mound, he made 15 starts and came out of the bullpen 18 times in his career. He posted an ERA of 3.94 in his career. He was the Twins 12th round pick in 2014. He stayed in Ft. Myers, pitching 35 innings for the GCL Twins. He can start, but long-term, he is likely a bullpen guy. He throws in the low-90s and has a three-pitch mix. His breaking ball is pretty good, and his changeup can keep people off balance. At 6-4 and 210 pounds, Tillery is a pretty good athlete.
