Alec is a catcher/1B that has a solid frame behind the dish. As a catcher Alec is a good receiver with soft hands. He has a good set-up but could present the target sooner. Alec has good footwork with a quick release but needs to work on his blocking to be a complete catcher. At the plate Alec has good bat speed, which allows him to square the ball up with good line drive power. Alec tends to get his weight too far back in his load/launch causing him to lunge at the ball. By widening his base and staying centered he will continue to see improvement offensively. Overall Alec is a hard worker with a great attitude and potential both offensively and behind the dish.
