Alexander is an athletic 2024 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. In the OF, Alexander is on time with his prep step, he has an aggressive first step to the ball, and plays through ground balls well. He has a strong arm but needs to follow through on his throws to improve his accuracy. At the plate, Alex starts in a quiet stance, he loads his hands back, and gets the barrel inside the ball. He gets to his balance in his lower half and looks to drive the ball to all fields. He needs to continue to stay closed and stay short to the ball and long through the ball. On the bump, Alex gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and stays tall on the backside. He stays rotational toward his target and works downhill. Alex is a competitor and will continue to improve with experience.
