06/30/2014 - National Tryout - Amelia (Cincinnati), OH Alex showed increased athleticism and play ability in his most recent Baseball Factory outing. Offensively, he hit with good bat speed and direct hands. He showed some life in the barrel down his pull side and had good feel for barrel accuracy. Behind the dish, he had quick actions and good body control. He received with some glove consistency and gained ground to throw, flashing some of his best pops to date in the 2.1 range. At first, he worked to the ball and kept his eyes behind the glove and ball, securing it in the glove. Staying athletic to field and throwing with his lower half will increase arm strength. All in all - Alex has shown growth time and time again, and we look forward to his progression throughout high school.
