01/13/2023 - 2023 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament Arya is an athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner. Pop times showed in 2.01 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows as a switch hitter but projects best as an RHH. Hands are quick (85 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. With 2 years to further develop, Arya has potential with time and room to progress his game.
