06/15/2013 - Omaha National World Series - Session 1 Alex continues to show steady play in his baseball abilities at 3B and on the mound. He works to square balls up and makes the routine plays, displaying clean hands but needs to play through more, improve foot quickness and present hands more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. At the plate, he shows a balanced approach with hands working through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact with power numbers improving as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 78-81 mph with arm side run on a slight downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with sharp breaking action. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with fading action. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
