03/27/2022 - All-In Membership - Lynwood (Chicago), IL Alex is a C who will graduate in 2023. Medium frame stocky build, with strong lower half, and strength present. Behind the dish, showed efficient footwork, with flexible hips, and tracks ball to mitt. Sets up in an athletic/square primary position, with an easy sway, working his thumb under and keeping balls in the zone. Creates good blocking angles, while covering the 5-hole, and uses his chest to deaden the baseball. He gains ground to second base, with a quick/clean transfer, and creates momentum to his target. Made on-line throws consistently from a high 3/4 arm slot, with a short/loose arm stroke, and an arm velocity up to 76mph with a best pop time of 2.21 seconds. At the plate, he hits from a crouched and even stance. Starts with a short/square glide step, with quick hands, and he keeps his weight between his knees. Has a good bat angle at contact with a middle of the field approach. Gets on-plane early and has a fast barrel through the hitting zone. Hit balls to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 85mph. As he continues to develop and mature, we foresee Alex having a bright future on the baseball field.
