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.

    if the worst ‘writer’ in the history of writing wants to pretend to be a baseball player, let him have his dream. however, not even a created video game character of gleeman wouldn’t get signed by any team.

    Gleeman does the little things right but he would feed Gardenhire’s infatuation with miscast players in the No. 2 spot. That, and his tendency to dive head first into that Chicken dish for which he’s noted. I just don’t see him as a good fit in MLB. Maybe with the Seibu Lions, though.

    Even when making up fictional characters for the Twins, apparently none of them can be pitchers.
