12/20/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City
Alex showed a great attitude, solid versatility, and good feel for the game during his time in Pirate City. At 3B, Alex fields out front, he presents his glove well, and he displays proper footwork. He works the double play well, and throws with carry to his target. On the mound, Alex stands over the rubber well, he works to his balance point properly, and he has good length in his limbs. At the plate, Alex has an athletic set-up, quick hands, and a level swing. He has decent bat speed, and can hit hard to the pull side.

Alex is a senior two-way player that runs well - 7.25 sixty. At third, he has good pre-pitch work, is aggressive attacking ground balls, and has an accurate arm to throw. Working lower and further in front with his hands will promote greater fielding percentage. On the mound, he mixes his well, throwing three effective pitches for strikes - FB at 76 MPH, 12/6 curve-ball, and arm side CH. He has a smooth, repeatable delivery, and clean arm action. His curve-ball is his current out pitch, with sharp action. With the bat, he is athletic, balanced, and uses his lower half. He flashes some gap-pop and shows some greater future potential. In all, Chavez has a good frame - 6'2"/180 lbs - and projectable tools.
