Alex Call
Name: Alexander M. Call
Born: Sep 27, 1994 in Burnsville, Minn. USA
High School: River Falls (Wis.) HS
College: Ball State
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 188 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 3rd round (86th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2016 (signed for $719,100)
A three-year starter at Ball State, Call had always shown raw power in batting practice, but it didn't come into play in games until this year. With 13 home runs, a .667 slugging percentage and 162 total bases as a junior, he is a much more interesting prospect than he was when he was a slap-hitting corner outfielder coming into the season. The 6-foot, 188-pounder has shown steady improvement in his three years as a Cardinal. He has an above-average throwing arm that fits in right field, is an average to tick-above-average runner (he's better underway than out of the box) and could play center field in a pinch.
