01/27/2013 - College PREP - San Diego, CA Alex is a young, 1st baseman with a thin frame. In the INF, Alex has firm hands, playable feet, and he has good awareness around the bag. He moves well to the glove side, makes plays, and he can throw from multiple arm angles to his target. Better pre-pitch actions and playing more through the ball will spike defensive grades. Offensively, Alex has a crouched set-up, a short stride, and good balance. He swings in good rhythm, makes consistent contact, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. More direct hands to the ball and added bat speed will spike hitting tool grades.
