    View Draft Report
    A second-team freshman All-American last season, Alexander was a key part of one of the deepest rotations in the nation as a draft-eligible sophomore. Alexander succeeds with a below-average 88-90 mph fastball because he spots it impeccably and mixes in a sweepy slider and a potentially fringe-average changeup. His arm speed picked up during the season, which helped his fastball gain a tick or two and created more separation between his changeup and fastball. Alexander doesn't have an above-average pitch, but his excellent control gives him a chance to be a potential back-of-the-rotation starter because of as a savvy lefthander.
