Player Bio

Became a Cardinal
Selected in the 3rd round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft. Signing announced June 15, 2010.

2010 Season
Batted just .178 in his 42-game professional debut with the Gulf Coast League Cardinals.

Prep highlights
The Californian burst upon the prospect scene in the summer of 2009 while flashing a fastball that hit 93 MPH. Scouts see him eventually as a third baseman with his strong arm and superior bat speed.

The Cardinals signed him away from a commitment to Fresno State.

Notes
Name is pronounced TOO-ee-vahl-lah-la.
