Fastball 50 50 89-91 92 FB 89-91 T92; average sink; plus control of pitch with fair command.

Movement- 50/50
Changeup 50 55 81-83 83 CH 81-83; preferred offspeed pitch; good arm speed with late, fading action; very comfortable with pitch; to both sides; average offering right now; could play higher.

Overall

While not the most exciting profile, Alexander's arsenal plays up given his plus control of everything and improving command. Fairly low-risk profile and could reach his back-end rotation ceiling sooner rather than later.

Control- 60/60
Command- 45/55
