RHP/INF Kyle Alivo (St. Thomas More, 2024; Iowa commit) kicks off our coverage of the top-10 profiles viewed in the state of Wisconsin – coming off of a busy, productive year of baseball.

For Alivo, it started early on in the winter, where the 2022 PBR Future Games participant stood out at the Milwaukee Preseason ID – the largest attended event in PBR Wisconsin’s showcase history. Standing at a wiry 6-foot-1, 168-pound frame, Alivo showcased a whippy arm, unique delivery and velocity increase on the mound in an impressive bullpen performance. Here’s a report from from our scouting staff:

“Alivo put together one of the more, if not the most impressive ‘pen of the day. Currently the No. 14 ranked player in the state, the Iowa commit has all sorts of upside to go along with present ability, listed at 6-foot-1, 162-pounds. The right-hander is an ultra-athletic mover down the mound, creating power and using his body well down the mound to create a fastball that sat 90-91 mph with over 2,300 RPM on average - also featuring above average ride through the zone with an average IVB of 16.6 (T18.2). He then went to a sinking fastball in the 84-88 mph range, topping out at 89 mph and playing with late/heavy downward action and feel to his arm-side. His changeup flashed well above-average as a potential out-pitch, dropping his slot slightly at times but still playing with late life and downward action, 77-79 mph. His final offering was a 10/4 slider that spun between 2,250-2,340 RPM, flashing sharp action at 75-79 mph. Extremely high-upside right-hander with more to come.”

His work and training translated right away to his outings for St. Thomas More, where Alivo blossomed into a noteworthy two-star in the greater Milwaukee area. Alivo led the Cavaliers to the Division 2 State Championship game before being eliminated by Denmark in a thrilling extra-inning battle. The right-hander earned the win in the first game in Fox Cities Stadium – shutting out a strong Altoona team in five innings of work. Alivo struck out seven and only allowed three hits in an 11-0 run-rule victory – rushing his fastball up to 90 mph.

After leading St. Thomas More to a 27-3 record in the spring, Alivo took full advantage of the summer circuit by turning heads everywhere he traveled. Alivo made appearances and found success at numerous events and tournaments – including a special invite to the Illinois State Games in Aug. this past fall. Despite a heavy workload and a minor injury, Alivo continued to show strides in his game, especially on the mound.

It was at the The Rock Fall Championships this past Sept. where Alivo showcased a strong velocity bump. In his appearance on the mound for Prospect Training Academy, Alivo’s fastball peaked at 92 mph, and his complementary slider and curveball continued to provide swings and misses from opponents.

His noteworthy improvement earned him a debut in the top-10 of Wisconsin’s 2024 rankings, as he currently slots in at No. 8. Additionally, Alivo earned a spot in the 2024 national rankings at No. 376.

Alivo’s incredible 2023 campaign primed him for success in 2024, as he looks to go out on a high note with St. Thomas More this upcoming spring before he departs for Iowa City in the fall.

Scouting Report


Alivo was potentially the best we’ve seen him in recent memory. The Iowa commit was dominant in his start, working his fastball up to 92 mph early on and cruising at 88-90, still reaching back for 90 mph in the fourth inning. He showed clear confidence in his slider, thrown often and in any count at 75-77 mph with sharp 10/4 action, spinning over 2600 RPM at times. He also flashed a changeup in the upper-70s with fade and arm-speed. Highly athletic and a competitor on the mound. He also showed a knack for the barrel throughout the tournament with his athletic right-handed stroke, nearly leaving the yard for a home run on Friday. Quality actions on the infield dirt, fluid footwork with range to both sides of his glove. Arm easily translates to the infield with life and carry across the diamond. Currently ranked No. 9 in Wisconsin.
