Focus Area
Fastball:Aumont's fastball touched 96 mph in a three-inning stint for Team Quebec in Florida.
FB Movement:Aumont's fastball has got some serious heavy life.
Slider:Aumont ran his slider up to 82 mph. It was a little inconsistent.
Changeup:Aumont showed a feel for a change in the bullpen, but didn't throw one in this outing.
Control:He commanded his fastball pretty well, using its heavy life to keep it down in the zone. He did not command his slider as well.
Physical Description:Big, power-armed pitcher who's not a bad athlete for his size.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Size, projectability and fastball velocity/life.
Weaknesses:Inexperience. Hailing from eastern Canada, Aumont simply hasn't been on the mound a lot, so he's not polished.
Summary:With a plus fastball, a slider that should become an above-average offering over time, a feel for a changeup and his size, Aumont understandably drew a lot of interest. He may have started behind prep pitchers from Florida and Texas because of inexperience, but he caught up and should be one of the top high school pitchers selected on draft day.
