12/08/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Accelerated Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Alexander is an athletic and talented prospect that made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Hitting Weekend. At the plate, Alexander starts in a squared stance and shows power to all fields. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, create rhythm in his body, and attack the inside part of the ball. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and keeping his head down at contact will allow him to keep a middle approach. Alexander will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Alex is a 1B/LHP prospect who will graduate in 2021. In the field, Alex flashes good lateral range and fields in a square position. He shows sure hands and makes accurate throws to his target. Alex can improve defensively by getting into a more atheltic ready position. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a square stride. He works to barrel up the baseball and makes solid contact. Working a smoother load into his swing can help Alex improve as a hitter. On the mound, Alex works from the stretch only and keeps his pitches around the zone. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 62mph with sinking action. Breaking ball sits from 52-56mph with 2-8 break. Changeup sits from 59-62mph with sinking action as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Gathering to a balance point over the rubber can help Alex improve as a pitcher. With three more years to develop, Alex has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
