Eric Alcantar is a 2007 1B/P from Venice HS, residing in Los Angeles, CA, with a 6'1" 186 lb. frame. Has a strong athletic type build and a good frame. Offensively he has a strong upper body and uses that upper body a lot in his swing. He certainly has some strength but his lower half does not have much flexion. The result is that he can and will hammer mistakes up in zone but will struggle with average breaking stuff in the bottom of the zone. He has some pop in his zone and decent bat speed so his power can play, but not as an average hitter. His hips work early, also suggesting that breaking balls are going to be troublesome. Alcantar is strong but he made inconsistent contact. Defensively his arm tracks pretty well and he showed decent hands. His footwork was fine around the bag and he can be an average defender at the college level. He should be considered a follow prospect for local colleges and could benefit from time at a JC to get the reps at the plate.

Eric Alcantar is a 2007 1B/RHP from Venice High School in Los Angeles, CA, with a 6'1", 180 lb. frame. Alcantar was one of the best first baseman at picking balls in the dirt. He would stay right in on the ball and show soft hands. He also showed good fielding actions with good footwork around the bag, and has a strong throwing arm for a first baseman. At the plate the right handed hitter uses a low hand set, but generates good bat speed with some present raw power. Alcantar has a line drive swing path with his hands, but he will sometimes drop his back shoulder and get under the ball. During the games he hit some balls hard especially back up the middle, and he is very quick on the inside pitch. On the mound he threw one inning and did not allow a hit while striking out one. He fastball topped out at 77 mph with a 64 mph breaking ball. He has a herky jerky motion making it hard for the hitters to pick up the ball. He is also a good student.
