CJ Alexander
Name: Charles Joseph Wesley Alexander
Born: Jul 17, 1996 in Merrillville, IN
Junior College: State JC of Florida
Ht.: 6'5" / Wt.: 215 lbs

Drafted in the 20th round (592nd overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2018 (signed for $125,000)
The older brother of Blaze Alexander, C.J. is a solid prospect in his own right, although he's an entirely different player than his defensive-oriented younger brother. Alexander transferred from Ball State after playing sparingly in two seasons, and he has improved his draft stock tremendously thanks to a strong spring with State JC of Florida as well as an impressive summer when he ranked as the No. 2 prospect in the South Florida Collegiate Baseball League. This spring, he hit .405/.488/.785, leading the Manatees in slugging percentage and home runs (15). Power is Alexander's carrying tool and he has 70-grade raw power with a fluid lefthanded swing. The Central Florida commit did a nice job of cutting down his strikeouts this spring and has shown enough ability at third base to have a chance to stick at the hot corner in pro ball. His plus arm strength would easily play at the position, although some evaluators worry that his size--6-foot-5, 215 pounds--will push him to first base or a corner outfield spot. A fringe-average runner currently, his speed could continue to diminish in the future.
