Paul Mainieri on AJ Labas:
“We were very fortunate to land AJ in our recruiting class following a major league draft that took two outstanding pitchers away from us. AJ was himself drafted in the 17th round after playing in a very competitive Florida high school area, opting to play college baseball before embarking on his professional career. He has the look of a premier pro prospect, and it is exciting to see how he develops. When I watch him throw, I see many similarities to Alex Lange. He has excellent mound presence for a young pitcher and commands three pitches for strikes, including a low 90s fastball. AJ is a strong candidate to crack the rotation early in his time at LSU.”
