05/01/2022 - All-In Membership - Trenton, NJ Maximus is a young, strong catcher who will graduate in 2023. Behind the plate, Maximus tracks well, footwork is efficient, and he sits in low and squarely. He has firm hands, works low to high, and throws with pop times as low as 2.69 seconds to 2nd base. If Maximus can continue to work on blocking and receiving, and quicken release, defensive grades will improve. AT 1B, Maximus is a good sized target who moves well around the bag. He fields squarely, makes plays, and throws accurately to his target. Defense can get better by fielding further out in front and quickening the exchange. Offensively, Maximus has a square stance, a short stride, and good balance. He loads well, has fast bat speed, and makes consistent contact with pop to the pull side. Hitting can improve if Maximus can let the ball travel deeper and tap into more lower 1/2.
