The first game-action video of Aaron Gleeman has recently emerged on the internet, as the noted blogger continues his remarkably under-reported transition from writing about to actually playing major-league baseball.
Here’s a brief scouting report on Gleeman’s main tools based entirely on the five seconds of footage embedded here.
Hitting: Extreme opposite-field approach. Like, exclusively.
Defense: Appears able to catch fly balls that he himself has just hit. Suggests excellent outfield range.
Spectacles: Black frames with Transitions lenses, looks like.
Helmet: Pretty shiny.
Body: A little bit pixely-y.
