1) Contact: A-
Alex has amazing plate coverage, thereby allowing him to make contact with the ball at either end of the plate.
2) Power: A+
Alex may hang up his cleats one day as the all time home run king in Major League baseball. To me, that is worthy of the elusive A+ rating.
3) Hitting For Average: A-
Alex consistently hits over .300, and has had some pretty gaudy batting averages in his career.
4) Fielding: A
A former Gold Glove shortstop, Alex continues to show his defensive prowess at third base.
5) Arm: A
Alex has an extremely strong arm, as he often shows with his magnificent plays at the hot corner.
6) Stealing: A-
He may not be the fastest player out there, but he knows how to steal a base as well as anyone.
7) Base Running: A
Alex has always been an extremely intelligent base runner, always making the right decisions of the base paths.
8) Patience: B+
When the weakest area of your game is rated to be a B+, you know you’re doing something right. Alex’s patience is already really good, and it seems to only be getting better.
Overall Grade: A
