Alexy pitched mostly in the upper 80s prior to an offseason spike in velocity. He was on some scouts' radars during the summer and fall, but everyone knew about him after a strong showing at the Maplezone Invitational in January, where showed off a live, loose arm. Alexy has a sturdy 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame with wide shoulders and room for additional muscle. He has a clean arm action with arm speed that indicates future velocity gains. His fastball has been mostly 88-92 this spring, and he's flashed the ability to locate his changeup down in the zone. His curveball shows top-to-bottom action, but it will need more power to develop into an average offering, though it flashes tight spin currently. Alexy has shown potential for three pitches and a pro body, traits indicative of a future starter. He is committed to Radford.
