Who is Aaron Slegers? It's myjah to the rescue!
What’s the biggest thing to know about Slegers? Him. He’s 6’10". That’s three inches taller than noted tall baseball man Aaron Judge, and just one inch shorter than tallest major league baseball man ever Jon Rauch. They say being tall is good for pitchers, and if that’s true Slegers should be amazing!
He'll be facing the less-tall Cleveland call-up Ryan Merritt. Who is that? It's FanGraphs to the rescue!
An ice-cold pitchability lefty with a mid to upper-80s fastball and cutter, Merritt also features an above-average changeup and lollipop curveball. Profiles as an up-and-down arm.
