COACHES COMMENTS:

AJ is a talented switch-hitting catcher and RHP, who also makes for a great option at either corner spot of the IF. Offensively, AJ poses as a constant threat from both sides of the plate. He does a nice job consistently barrelling up baseballs and has gap-to-gap power. As a catcher, AJ is a confident, calm receiver that truly makes his pitcher’s feel comfortable. He has very clean footwork and his natural arm talent controls the opposing teams run-game. In the IF, AJ has soft hands and uses his lower half well when approaching ground balls. As AJ continues to develop more side-to-side quickness, he will make for a terrific option at either corner IF spot. On the mound, AJ often looks most comfortable as he does a really nice job of staying poised and attacking hitters. AJ commands a heavy fastball to both sides of the plate and has tremendous feel with both his CH and CB. As AJ continues to develop speed, strength and body control, he will be on the radar of a lot of top schools in the years to come.
