    The son of former minor leaguer Rich Aldrete and the nephew of ex-big leaguer Mike Aldrete, Carter Aldrete is a three-year starter for the Sun Devils who stands out most for his versatility and instincts on the field. Splitting the majority of his time between second base and outfield during his college career, Aldrete could also handle third base with enough arm for any position and hands that work well on the dirt. He’s not an quite an average defender at any position, but he should be adequate in a utility role, which is his likely future at the pro level. Aldrete projects as a below-average hitter, but he has enough hand-eye coordination to get by. He shows plus raw power, but it’s a tick below-average in games. Aldrete is a grinder on the field, and that attribute, plus his bloodlines, will get him drafted either late on Day 2 or early on Day 3.
