Baseball Factory D.C. All Star Experience (Ages 12-14)
Ajellen is a coachable C/OF prospect who continued to work hard on his skills during his time at the D.C. All Star Experience. Behind the plate, Ajellen shows fluid footwork and moves well when blocking balls in the dirt. He sits in an athletic stance and presents a good target to the pitcher. He throws with a quick arm action and keeps his throws consistently on-line to 2B. Ajellen can improve defensively by quickening his exchange to throw. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He produces fast bat speed through the zone which leads to some gap to gap pop. Ajellen can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With four more years to develop, Ajellen has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
