Alex is a 2022 catching prospect out of Baldwin, NY who continues to showcase his baseball tools and did so at the Arizona Senior Fall Classic. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt, tracks the ball well and sticks pitches in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times showed in the 2.13 range with carry (82 mph velocity) to his target. Offensively, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion with the ball screaming off his barrel. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Alex with him being in his senior year.
