Scouting Report on Aldinger
Tristan Aldinger RHP (Alexander HS, NY 2015)

Aldinger stands 5-foot-10 145-pounds with room to grow. He throws from an over the top slot, sitting 83-84 mph with a long arm action and late life. He shows a 70-71 mph curveball with 11/5 shape with power action. Change up was 71 and slows arm some. Mechanically he has a good tempo and really drives well off the rubber. He finishes his pitches out in front.

Analysis:
Aldinger has the arm to pitch at the next level with a fastball sitting 83-84 mph with some late life to it. He only weighs 145-pounds and adding overall strength should be his No. 1 priority heading into the off season this year. His curveball is his second best pitch showing signs for good rotation and spin with good hand speed. If he adds 5-10-pounds this off season a few mph on the fastball are definitely not out of the question. It will be a big winter for him and his development forward. He is an ideal candidate for our Sept. 21st unsigned senior event in Oneonta NY.
