Scouting Report

10/15/17- Florida International recruit. He has high waist, long legs and arms, which is extremely projectable. The arm is a a little long and shouldered, but works fairly clean with a fastball in the 87-90 mph range. He tends to swing open his lower half and loose some of the angle his would gain staying taller on the backside and the high 3/4 arm action. As he learns his body and how to stay closed longer down the mounds the velocity should make a jump. The curveball worked 73-76 and would get around at times and showed a changeup at 81-83 mph. The longer arm action led to some command issues but the frame is projectable with a high ceiling.

06/08/17 - Long arms and legs and an extremely projectable frame, I had heard some big velocity has been seen from Aleman. At the tryout he sat 89-91 mph with his fastball from a high 3/4 slot with not a lot of effort. He does not get a ton of extension and when he does the velocity will jump and be more consistent. The curveball had a quality shape at 74 mph and a changeup at 79-81. Big projection from Aleman and will look to make a big jump.
