08/25/2012 - College PREP - Maui, HI TJ is an athletic second basemen and pitcher. At second base, TJ has natural instincts with soft/sure hands and a quick/clean exchange. His throws have some carry from a 3/4 arm slot with loose arm action and consistent accuracy. Footwork around the bag is good, however continuing working on general footspeed and quickness will enable greater range and fluidity fielding. At the plate, TJ is an on-time contact hitter with a tall/open setup that comes back square with his stride. He remains balanced through the swing with a level bat path. With work on his load and landing consistently square on the balls of his feet, TJ will garner more barrel accuracy and more consistent contact. As a pitcher, TJ stays in-line to home with a smooth tempo and a 3/4 arm slot with loose arm action. He touched 78 mph with his fastball, and proved to be able to throw all pitches for strikes at times. His curve-ball has 11/5 shape with depth, while his change-up shows some sink. With a long toss program and concentration in his bullpens utilizing his legs, TJ will increase his pitching ability. TJ is an excellent athlete that not only can play second base, but also can pitch.
