07/09/2023 - National Showcase - Jupiter, FL We liked what we saw in our second viewing of 2025 grad Aidan McDonald. His size/stature makes him well-suited for both pitching and the corners. On the mound, fastball velocities ranged from 80-82mph which is up 2mph since we saw him 6 months ago. His increase in velocity is attributed to his added lower half body strength going up from a 7'7" broad jumper to an 8'0" broad jumper. He showed tight spin on his slider that sat 71-72mph and his changeup showed sink sitting 73-75mph. As a first baseman, he displays clean glove work and proper foot work. Additional agility drills are recommended to get even lighter on his feet. At the plate, he makes consistent contact with exit velocities as high as 87mph. With two years of high school still in front of him, McDonald should garner interest from the collegiate ranks.
