Pettitte throws off mound for first time since fracturing leg

Outfielder Daniel Aldrich was named the 29th best prospect in the prospect-heavy Cape Cod League by Baseball America yesterday (subs. req’d). The Yankees signed the 21-year-old redshirt sophomore out of the College of Charleston as an undrafted free agent for $150k earlier this month.

“His uppercut left-handed swing and all-out approach leads to some swings and misses, especially against breaking balls, but scouts love his power, bat speed and strong wrists … [he projects] as a right fielder with an average arm,” wrote the publication. Aldrich hit .350/.382/.658 with ten homers with wood bats on the Cape this summer and he’s twice participated in the College Homerun Derby, winning it last year. Here’s some video.
