Personal

Alex hits for both average and power, and he consistently has high on-base percentages, so he is a very effective middle-of-the order presence in the lineup.

Defensively, he can play any of the outfield positions, and he also has experience from high school and junior college as a second baseman and third baseman.  He has above-average speed, with times in the 60-yard dash ranging to 6.6 seconds.  His speed helps him get to balls in the outfield that others would not, as well as making him a significant base-stealing threat.

As a teammate, Alex is very supportive and upbeat, and he brings much positive energy to a team.  He is a lead-by-example type, but he is a vocal leader when necessary.  He is the type who consistently puts in extra work to achieve continual improvement.

He has a lot of coaching experience, as well, having been a private instructor and a camp counselor at the youth level and also been head coach of teams with 13- and 14-year-olds.  He would be excited about assisting a club’s coaching staff.

Alex is the perfect example of what a professional baseball player should be. His excellent character, strong work ethic, high baseball IQ, and solid tools make him fun to watch and a joy to be around on and off the field. He’s the type of player that improves his team’s talent level as well as their culture.

In my 20 plus years as a pro scout, I haven’t seen many kids with his abilities along with a humble and hardworking mindset. Great kid all the way around.
