12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Alex is a coachable 1B/LHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Winter Classic. In the field, Alex attacks the ball aggressively and shows good lateral range. He gets into position on time and fields with a relaxed glove. He makes a two-handed exchange and gets rid of the ball quickly, working to keep his throws accurate to his target. Long tossing to build up his arm strength can help Alex improve defensively. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a controlled stride. He gets his hands activated on time and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent line drives. Alex can improve as a hitter by continuing to add strength. On the mound, Alex is controlled gathering to his balance point and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and stays inline towards the plate, finishing with a controlled landing. Alex shows a two pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 62mph. Breaking ball sits from 53-55mph with 1-7 break. With five more years to develop, Alex has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
