Alec continues to develop and has made several improvements in his game since we last saw him. On the bump, this RHP works to a tall balance point and has smooth separation. His side-arm delivery helps to create a little deception and will keep hitters a little off balance. FB now ranges from 68-72 mph as he pounds the zone with strikes. Breaking ball has 10/4 shape with early action and 'sweeping' type break. Driving off of the rubber more with his lower 1/2 will help to get even more into his FB. In the OF, Alec hustles to track down fly-balls hit to his right and left. He tracks the ball into his mitt and secures it with soft hands. Developing a quicker first step will help to increase the amount of ground that he'll be able to cover.

Alec is a hustler who is very coachable. As an outfielder he has solid arm strength, sure hands and a good tall frame. He needs to play through the ball more, improve his lateral quickness/footwork, and continue to strengthen his arm. On the mound Alec showed a repeatable delivery, command of fastball, and good extension on finish. He needs to stay tall on backside, keep front side closed longer, and gather better over the rubber. At the plate Alec displayed good balance, bat speed and contact. He needs to minimize head movement and improve on his pitch recognition. Alec has a bright future ahead of himself.
