Aaron Gleeman Scouting Report (With Video)


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.
