Alabama's best prospect is Alex Avila, who is a catcher for the Crimson Tide but may not be able to stay there as a pro. Wherever he is defensively, Avila's game will always be on offense. He has a professional approach with power, especially to the opposite field, and advanced hit instincts. He's the son of Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila.
