Large projectable frame at 6-foot-4,185 pounds. Pitching- The RHP displayed a repeatable delivery and a projectable arm. Works with a high knee lift and drives from a balanced back side. Keeps the front side closed and drives downhill with intent . Has a loose live arm from a high ¾ arm slot. FB peaked at 82 MPH and ranged from 80-82 . CB is tight and ranged from 68-69 MPH. The 2020 graduate has tons of upside and is a must follow.

Large frame standing 6-foot-4, 175-pounds, athletic build with projectability. 77 mph arm strength. Stays behind the ball, fields to glove side. In the box he's relaxed, wide base . High leg kick for timing. Stays back with his hands, smooth load on approach. 78 mph exit velo, consistent barrel contact. Pitching- Athletic body with good mound presence. Uses a upper 3/4 release point with good arm action. Fastball shows some late life with good sink on his change up. Was consistent in the zone and has a projectable pitchers body.

Aitken is a 6-foot-3 175-pound right-handed first baseman and pitcher. Tall, athletic frame. Offensively- Starts with his front foot open, hands high and tight near his ear. A little bounce before pre pitch, hangs front leg as for load. Front hip flies open on swing and causes hips to open up early. Finishes very off balance with pull favoritism. 70 MPH exit velocity. Defensively- Gets into good fielding position, uses long legs to move off bag well. Funnels well to chest, solid transfer and delivers hard throw towards target. Pitching- Sets up straight up, uses side step to start windup. Brings knee just past belt, hands at chest. Throws over the top and drives down the hill well. Fastball sat 74-76 MPH with a little arm side run. Curveball has decent 12-6 break, keeps it low at 64-65 MPH. Changeup has a little arm side drop late at 67-68 MPH. Command of all pitches would improve deceptiveness of off-speed.
