Shawn Alam is a 2005 1B/LHP from Miami, FL, with a lean 6'1", 145 lb. frame. Defensively he flashes advanced skills with nice mobility, soft hands, and a good reach at first base. Offensively he hits from a wide base with a closed stance that has a long stride and heavy weight shift into contact. Shawn has a long swing that finishes high and is currently a line drive/contact type hitter. On the mound he is a location pitcher who works for defensive ground outs. He throws from a low 3/4 arm slot with a long, loose arm action. His mechanics are sound and he shows minimal effort while pitching. He pitches with a tall-and-fall style into a rotational finish. His fastball is 71 mph from a tough angle and his curveball is 58mph with a 2-8 tilt and average depth. Shawn shows nice athletic actions and desire, he just needs more core strength. We see him as a potential two way college guy when he adds that strength.
