Alex is a hard working 2020 2B/OF prospect who will do whatever it takes to improve. He has advanced bat to ball ability as he works on a short path to square up any pitch thrown to him. He loads to a stacked position and he is smooth to launch with centered balance throughout his swing. He gets on plane early with the bat and makes consistent contact with the ability to use all fields for base hits. In the field, he fields square to the ball, working from the ground up to make plays cleanly. He has a clean exchange to throw and shows good accuracy to his target. Implementing a long toss program will improve arm strength moving forward. Alex is an interesting prospect we look forward to continue watching.

Alex is a young, 2-way player who plays 2B and OF. In the OF he has quick footwork and hustles to fly-balls hit to his right and left. Alex tracks well, attacks GB's aggressively, and throws with a high 3/4 arm slot to his cut-off man. Abilities in the OF can get better if Alex can sure up his routes, quicken his release, and increase his arm strength. At 2nd base, Alex centers the ball through an athletic fielding position. He makes plays consistently and throws with consistency to 1st base. At the plate, Alex has a closed set-up, a still head, and a level stick. He loads well, swings in good rhythm, and makes consistent contact to all fields. With a more direct barrel and letting the ball travel deeper into the hitting zone, we could see a spike in hitting numbers. Only a 2020 grad, Alex has skills with still time to develop.
