After a huge sophomore season (.328, 20 HR) for Wake Forest and a strong summer for USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team and in the Cape Cod League, Aiello hit a wall this spring. As one of the last remaining big bats in Wake Forest's once-loaded lineup, Aiello pressed at the plate early in the season. His timing suffered, his swing got a little long, and his swing-and-miss issues were exposed. Aiello finished the regular season batting .237/.355/.401 with just nine homers and 75 strikeouts in 207 at-bats. Aiello possesses above-average power, but he had trouble consistently getting to it in 2018, and his high strikeout rate could prohibit him from hitting for contact at the next level. A solid third baseman with a plus arm, Aiello fits the prototypical third baseman profile. Junior season aside, Aiello's ACC track record and summer performance still give him a chance to go in the first five rounds.
