Brady Aiken’s Scouting Report

Aiken was selected first overall by the Astros in last year’s draft, but couldn’t come to an agreement with the team. Houston lowered their offer to Aiken after they saw his physical. There’s a rumor about the size of Aiken’s UCL, and the blood flow to that area. This has had a major effect on his draft stock and could end up costing him millions of dollars. Aiken, when healthy is the best prospect in this draft, but the problem is he isn’t healthy and is a huge risk. He has three plus pitches and plus command to go with it. He has a repeatable delivery and looks very comfortable on the mound. Aiken has the potential to be an ace at the next level if he gets healthy.

Brady Aiken’s Best Fit

Aiken was committed to UCLA and might be comfortable playing for a team on the west coast. The Giants at 31 would be a great fit. It would give Aiken the ability to play on the west coast in the majors and the minors, with Single-A Advanced playing in San Jose and Triple-A playing in Sacramento.
