10/05/2016 - Arizona Freshman/Sophomore Fall Classic AJ continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 71 mph. He shows a sound / repeatable delivery, working in line and on time allowing his arm to work loose / free to the plate. Fastball showed good sinking action from a low 3/4 arm slot. Breaking ball displays a 11/5 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for with sinking action. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches at the next level. Control is outstanding as he throws strikes with all his pitches, attacking hitters. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields. At 3B, he attacks balls with his feet as he works around and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / sure and he presents well out front. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable, works very hard, and is a great teammate.

01/15/2016 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) AJ is a coachable, hardworking RHP/3B who will graduate in 2018 with a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through an open / athletic setup. Hands are quick and work to and through the baseball, creating extension. He shows an advanced stroke and works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields. At the event, he was 3 for 10. At 3B, feet are active as he works to square balls up and presents glove well out front. Continuing to increase foot quickness will improve range in the IF. On the mound, he shows good mound presence and composure. Fastball showed in the mid 60 range with a 10/4 shape CB with gradual break. Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. With 3 years to further develop, AJ has potential and is a player to continue to follow.

11/06/2014 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 12-14) A.J. is an athletic two way player with a solid knack for the game. Defensively, A.J. gets into a good, athletic fielding position, sports sure hands and has a very accurate arm. He flows through the ball well toward his target but can improve his first step quickness and footwork. On the mound, A.J. is a smooth tempo type righty who keeps his eyes down on his target, has a calm, controlled delivery which allows him to command the zone. He could use his lower half more and concentrate on a controlled finish toward the plate. Offensively, A.J. has a good, squared setup that allows him to use his lower half well, takes his hands to the ball directly and makes solid contact with an aggressive swing. To improve at the plate, he can control his backside balance a bit more.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
