03/09/2012 - Yankees Spring Training Experience TJ is an athletic player who is solid in the outfield and at 2B. Defensively he displayed sure hands, active footwork, plays through well and he is a hustler. Tj is a raw player right now but he possesses the ability to be a very good defensive player. At the plate he has an athletic set-up and stable balance but he needs to develop a smooth stride/load, use his lower half more and generally loosen up to be more fluid. Tj did a very nice job at the Yankee Spring Training event and if he keeps working his talents will give him an opportunity to have success in the future.
