Aldrete sets career high for homers at Eugene

Not only has Carter Aldrete switched positions this year, but a tweak in his swing has seen the first baseman hit for power and average this summer for the Eugene Emeralds.

Selected in the 15th round in 2019 by the San Francisco Giants, Aldrete has hit a career high 11 home runs, while hitting .280 for the teams High A affiliate.

Having spent part of spring training with the Giants parent club, the Monterey High graduate is second on the Emeralds in homers, runs batted in (37) and doubles (12) through 57 games.

The 24-year-old has also scored 31 runs and walked 19 times this summer, while finding a home in the field at first base.

In parts of three minor league seasons with the Giants, Aldrete has hit 24 homers and driven in 104 runs in 615 at bats.

Aldrete was a four-year starting shortstop for Monterey, earning all-county honors twice. He played second, third and the outfield at Arizona State.
