MIF Aidan Thaxton (St. Ignatius, 2023) has advanced infield actions and throughout the three games, solidified himself as one of the better defensive infielders in attendance. In gameplay, Thaxton made multiple above-average plays at shortstop, including going up and getting a line-drive at its highest point. He also was comfortable on the move making a number of plays to both sides look relatively easy. Thaxton also was on the barrel throughout the two days finishing 3-for-5 with a double, walk and a run scored.

 Thaxton has highly-athletic actions at shortstop with advanced glove presentation and quick glove-to-hand release when he wants. He plays in control and naturally on the move with the ability to throw from multiple slots. His arm topped at 84 mph and ran a 6.87 60 which is down from a 7.15 from 2021. Offensively, he has an upright, relaxed setup in the right-handed batters box and works gap-to-gap with fluid rhythm and relaxed look. Follow 2023 middle infielder.

5/07/22

Uncommitted. Currently ranked No. 170 in the Illinois 2023 class. Athletically built, 5-foot-11, 175-pound frame. Started at shortstop and hit out of the lead-off spot for St. Ignatius. Impressed with the glove throughout the game; boasting soft/fluid hands with athletic feet through the ball, controlling his body well on plays to both sides and on the slow roller, arm plays with carry and from multiple angles. At the plate, the right-handed hitter showed the ability to make adjustments mid at-bat, learning speed differentials and seeing spin while making hard contact in all four of his at-bats on the day. He starts with his feet in a narrow position and moves into a long stride, hangs foot; his hands start low and work upwards through the zone with easy bat-speed, looking to put the ball on a line and showing pop to the pull-side.
