Aidan is a skilled 2-way player who continues to develop his tools on the diamond. On the mound, this lefty will toe the rubber and compete. He has a solid mound presence and repeats his delivery well. Arm works quick/free as he commands both his FB and CB to both sides of the plate. CB shows to be best off-speed pitch with tight spin and good action. As a hitter, this lefty shows a balanced setup with a solid base. He gets good hand separation on his load and whips the barrel with speed, connecting and engaging his lower 1/2 well resulting in pop off of the barrel (exit velocity = 83 mph). Aidan is a solid 2-way prospect who has upside and we are excited to see him continue to develop.

Aidan is a 5'10/170 lbs LHP that will graduate in 2022. On the mound, he showed a three pitch mix - FB, CB, CH - with clean arm action and a good tempo. His FB sat from 69-72, his CB had 1/7 shape from 60-62, and his CH with tail sat from 65-66. His off-speed pitches were thrown with deception and with continued focus on his release - extending out in front, and finish - chest over his front knee, he'll begin to find even greater accuracy. At the plate, he worked inside the ball well with a square/athletic setup and short stride to get the swing going. He was smooth with his timing and rhythm, keeping his balance centered, allowing him to drive the ball up the middle of the field. Maintaining a more consistent direct path and landing a softer on his front side, will enable greater barrel accuracy and strength through contact. Overall - Aidan is an intriguing southpaw that we're excited to follow, with his ability to throw strikes and change speeds.
