Alex Merkle: OF, (2026) Reading Memorial, MA. 5-foot-8, 155-pound. (67.7 mph bat speed average). (18.8 mph hand speed average). Began in a balanced quiet stance with a controlled load, then used a quick stride. Bat speed is efficient, has a simple upward swing plane and high finish. Solid his best position velocity in the outfield was registered at 83 mph; had a natural exchange, sure hands, and consistent footwork. Movements laterally were athletic and he fields the ball out front. Had a loose arm action with a high ¾ slot.  (Max spin ; Avg ).
