11/12/2017 - Interactive Video Program - North Charleston, SC Alex is a young, R/R (2023 grad) 2-way player as a C/RHP. With the bat, this RHH displays a square setup with centered balance. He waits for a pitch he likes, swings on a short/compact path and engages his lower 1/2 well. Behind the plate, he sits in and tracks pitches into his mitt. He works hard laterally to body up pitches in the dirt off of his chest. Throws to 2B are accurate with pop times as low as 2.78. On the mound, Alex has a 3-pitch mix coming from a 3/4 arm slot. He works to a tall balance point, has smooth separation and works in-line towards the plate. FB tops out at 63 mph while showing slight sinking action. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape while CH has slight run. Continuing to work on the following will help to improve his overall skill-set on the diamond.
