12/12/2021 - All-In Membership - Manalapan, NJ AJ is a young 2-way player who plays shortstop and catcher. At shortstop, AJ has active foot work, a presentable glove, and he plays low. He has athletic actions, he keeps the ball in front of his body, and his exchange is clean with a three-quarter arm action across the diamond. If AJ can field further out in front of his body, quicken his release, and add further arm strength, abilities at shortstop will get even better. Behind the plate, AJ sits in well, with a comfortable stance, and good flexibility. He has active footwork, a clean exchange, and he throws with momentum and consistency from a short arm action to second base. AJ‘s pop times were timed as low as 2.5 seconds to second base. Continuing to work on blocking and receiving along with added arm strength will help spike abilities behind the plate. Offensively, AJ has good balance, an athletic set up, and he swings in good rhythm. He swings on plane, make square contact, and he taps into some lower body. Added aggressiveness and getting his hands into a better load position sooner, will help offensive numbers further spike.
