Alex worked out both in the OF and on the mound during his time in Pirate City.

He threw off the hill and showed good direction, solid control, and he fields his position well. At the plate, Alex has a tall set-up, fast bat speed, and he puts the bat on the ball consistently.
07/09/2013 - College PREP - Minnetonka (Minneapolis), MN
Alex is a tall, lanky, and athletic OF that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is slightly above average as indicated by his 7.45 60 time. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls through an aggressive approach. He needs to work on getting behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target and continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate with life and on line carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate, Biehn shows an athletic setup with rhythm. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Alex has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
