Drew Aldridge is a 6'3", 180 lb. right handed pitcher from Atlanta, Georgia, with an athletic frame and a projectable pitcher's body. Drew has a rotational delivery with high hands at the start, and comes down to throw across his body from a low 3/4 release point. His fastball at UNC was in the 83-84 mph range and we've seen him at 84-86 mph at WWBA events this summer. He throws a 66 mph curveball that gets pretty good two-plane break considering his release point. Drew has some effort in his unconventional delivery, but is a good athlete who shows the ability to command his pitches and get outs. He should add some velocity in the future, which will make his release point more intimidating. Drew is an excellent student.

Drew Aldridge is a 6'3", 180 lb. right handed pitcher from Atlanta, GA with a real nice, projectable athletic body. He throws from a low ¾’s release point with a long, whip like arm action. Aldridge’s fastball was pretty steady right around 84 mph for his four innings of work in Ft. Myers. As you would expect from the arm angle and arm action, Aldridge gets plenty of good running and sinking life on his fastball and gets lots of ground balls when he keeps the ball down in the zone. Where Aldridge needs some a little more work is with his secondary pitches. His curveball was in the low 60’s. He attempted only one change up that we saw and should develop this pitch some more for the future. He shows good command of the fastball and it could turn into a pro level pitch. His size, arm and mentality should make him a good DI pitcher. Drew is an excellent student.
