6-foot-3, 215-pound right-handed hitting first baseman and right-handed pitcher. Defensively, excellent around the bag, the glove is above average and the arm has plenty to it. Threw 78 mph across the diamond with ease. Ran a 4.6 down the line with minimal effort. The movements are athletic. Tee exit velocity of 95 mph. The bat has serious juice to it, should hit for above average power at the next level. Hits out of an even footed start, the front foot has a big pick up and put down to it as the ball approaches. The path has lift to it, the hands work clean to the ball. Serious chance with flattening of the path. On the mound, the projection is great. The fastball touched 85 mph and the spin pitch was 72 mph. He had pitched the day before so he was a bit tentative on the mound. The changeup is in play but he didn’t throw any. The delivery is athletic and online. The lift is athletic, small coil at the top and goes to the plate. The arm works clean out of a plus ¾ slot. Small collapse on the back leg as he gets into foot strikes. Viable 2-way player.
Tee Exit Velocity- 95 mph

Physical right-handed hitting first base who has come to PBR events a number of times. Very athletic and can play first base with ease. The feet work around the bag, the arm is plenty, throwing 76 mph across the diamond. We did not get a dig time, as he is dealing with a sprained ankle. Can also pitch, but did not toe the bump at the event.  At the plate, tee exit velocity of 87 mph. The set up is even footed and the hands are clean. The posture of his frame sinks as he swings, would like to see him stay taller and work down to the ball a bit more. The skill set is there for sure.

Positionally, very athletic and huge target at first base. The glove is solid and showed the footwork to handle the bag. Played solid defense in the games. Threw 75 mph across the diamond in the defensive workout. Ran a 7.68 in the 60-yard dash, he can improve that with form running training and trimming down a bit. Weight room work is key for Alec, in my opinion. The bat is intriguing, although, he didn’t do much in the games. The swing gets long and he goes out and around in the game. The hands are free and work, just needs a directional adjustment and better posture through the swing. Tee exit velocity of 92 mph, with more to come. On the mound, he is a project as he just starting pitching but I like the light at the end of the tunnel. Fastball has good leverage, at times, to it. Touched 84 mph with minor arm-side run. The breaking pitch and changeup are both works in progress as he is starting from scratch. I love the potential on the mound, as I think with a little coaching his velocity on the mound come pop.

Right-handed hitting first baseman who shows a very good glove and footwork at the first base bag. The arm has plenty of strength to it, as he threw 78 mph across the diamond. The foot speed is average for his body, ran a 4.51 down the line on a dig to first base. The bat has life to it, but adjustments are in order to reach full potential. The path and hand speed are good. The bottom half has some collapse to it and he need to control his head/chest during the swing. My suggestion would be to spread out and use the hands, controlling the bottom half more efficiently. Very good athlete with a tremendous amount of potential.

Athletic right-hander pitcher who went to both days of our event. On the mound, he has serious potential. The frame is huge and the arm works. The slot is 3/4, with a true fastball that touches 82 mph. Showed a feel for the breaking pitch, spinning it at 68 mph. The changeup is a work in progress as it shows signs of being good, sitting at 67 mph. Just learning how to pitch, should be a serious guy in a year or so. At the plate, showed a better batting practice and in game at bats. Had a couple knocks in the game and ran the bases well. Tee exit velocity on day 2 of 93 mph. At first, he is a solid defender, throwing 76 mph across the diamond. Ran a 4.54 down the line on a dig.

First time seeing the big right-hander pitch as he is a quality positional player as well. Threw the ball extremely well for just beginning to pitch. The arm is clean on the backside and he gets relatively good extension for a raw prospect. Does collapse on his backside as opposed to staying tall and getting longer out front. The fastball touched 80 mph with arm side run to it. There is a ton more in his arm. The breaking pitch needs work as he needs to be taught correctly, the spin was 62 mph. The changeup is a work in progress, sat at 64 mph. Good looking two-way prospect.

Big, loose and physical right-handed hitting first baseman who displays above average tools. At first base, he showed good footwork around the bag and the ability to handle tough throws. The arm works and he can throw, 72 across the diamond to third base. Ran a 4.9 on a dig as he is big and lumbering. At the plate, the swing is loose and shows power potential. He sets up with a solid base and uses his hands to maneuver the bat. The path is flat and simple. The potential to be a lineup changing player is there, tee exit velocity of 82 but there is a ton more in the tank. Looking forward to following this guy.
