Scouting Report / Bio: A player that plays above his tools. Gaetti's biggest asset is his power. Has an upper cut swing that can get long, but can punish pitchers with impressive homers to left and left-centerfield. Short and stocky, Gaetti may lack in athleticism, and despite time in center, is best fit in left field, where his arm and range are still average to fringe average. He has been old for his leagues, and despite his minor league numbers, he may not be able to translate them to higher levels.
Future Outlook: MLB fourth outfielder, but with the pop and "gamer" mentality to surprise.
