He was with the LMU Lions for a year before transferring to Cypress College. Megill attended the University of Arizona for his final two years in college. He had a total of 202 strikeouts with an ERA of 4.27. Moreover, as a fielder, he registered 15 putouts and managed a fielding percentage of .871.

Thanks to impressive showings in college, Tylor was drafted by the New York Mets via the 2018 MLB draft as an 8th-rounder. After spending a couple of years in the minor league, playing for different Mets farm system teams, he finally made his major league debut on June 2021.

Kevin and Julie often go to their son's games and show their support from the stands in the ballpark.
