Alderson helped himself the most when he retired the side in order in the fourth inning on 9 pitches for the West squad as part of the Aflac All-American Classic. He even recorded two strikeouts as part of those nine pitches, so you know he was throwing strikes. At 6'7", Alderson has a towering frame, and with a herky-jerky delivery he creates a lot of deception that makes his stuff look faster than it actually is. And his stuff is pretty good. His fastball, which offers a fair amount of sink, sits in the low-90s. He also mixes in a slider that can be very nasty at times that sits in the low-80s. That one-two punch could make him a prototypical sinker-slider pitcher, and with his size he is a similar pitching prospect to Chris Volstad, who went 16th overall in the 2005 draft, and was also an Aflac All-American. His delivery is likely to draw some red flags given his stature, but it works for him and overall doesn't seem to put any unecessary stress on his pitching arm.
