Lower half works well through the swing and shows a plus feel for the barrel with baseball coming off the bat differently. In the OF, he continues to shine as he displays smooth / clean actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. Feet are aggressive as he works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with life, accuracy, and on line carry to his throws. Alek has all the tools with the makings of a solid 2018 draft pick.
