He stays inline towards the plate and shows a controlled landing. AJ shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 74mph with cutting action. Breaking ball sits at 68mph.

02/24/2018 - Mid Atlantic Regional Accelerated Pitching & Catching Weekend (Ages 12-14) A.J. is a hard working and talented 2022 RHP prospect that made several adjustments during the catching and pitching accelerated training weekend. On the bump, A.J. gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and stays squared toward his target. He keeps his eyes on his target and uses his lower half. Continuing to throw north to south and finishing over the front side will allow him to work the bottom half of the zone. A.J. will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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).
