It was good to get another look at Aaron as we know we will see maximum effort and a true passion for the game. He continues to fine tune parts of his game as he matures physically. He sat in well behind the plate showing a firm, strong wrist receiving and working to catch the outer half and present the ball well. He sits easy and reads balls in the dirt well, deadening balls off his chest. His throws to 2B were in the 2.2/2.3 range and on the bag. Offensively, Aaron showed the ability to let the ball travel and use his quick hands to deliver the barrel on time. He utilizes the middle of the field and will improve consistency with a better bat angle and shorter stroke.
