5/22/12: Alec Rash first appeared on the Perfect Game radar as a slender 6-foot-2, 165-pound Des Moines (Iowa) area sophomore throwing up to 87 mph in the 2009 Perfect Game Fall League. At that point Rash threw from an extended over the top release point with a hard downhill angle to the plate, and while he was a primary fastball pitcher, he’d mix in a very occasional downer curveball around 72 mph. Rash improved rapidly over the next eight months and topped out at 91 mph with an improved 75 mph curveball at a 2010 Perfect Game Junior National Showcase the following June. However, Rash moved to Alabama that summer to live with his mother and attended Pelham High School in suburban Birmingham as a junior. While in Alabama, Rash changed his arm action to a lower and tighter three-quarters release point that had more of an effect on his breaking ball than on his fastball, especially as Rash still had a relatively short stride out front and worked downhill with his fastball even with his new release point. He topped out at 92 mph with a more sweeping 78 slurve-type breaking ball at the 2011 Perfect Game National Showcase. Rash moved back to Iowa to live with his father for his senior year in 2011-2012 and filled out to a wiry strong 6-foot-5, 195-pounds. He has the type of frame that could put on a few more pounds as he matures, but Rash will likely always be tall and slender. Rash has taken the next step as a pitching prospect this spring to the point where he will probably be on teams' draft boards in the compensation to second round area, and has already established himself as Iowa’s top pitching prospect since Jeremy Hellickson, who somehow lasted until the fourth round of the 2005 draft. The most notable thing has been the jump in Rash’s velocity. He has been steadily pitching at 91-94 mph during PG Iowa Spring League games this spring and sat between 93-95 mph during the PG Pre-Draft Showcase before a huge crowd of scouts on May 14. Rash’s fastball not only has plus velocity but also shows plus late sink and bore when he gets it down in the strike zone. His very fast and compact arm stroke does a very good job hiding the ball from the hitter and might even add another effective mph or two to his velocity as hitters don’t pick up the ball well. Rash’s breaking ball has also evolved this spring. Back in March and April he was throwing a 78-81 mph slurve that was caught between a curveball and a slider and not succeeding at being either. Rash has made adjustments, however, and perhaps the most impressive part of his performance at the Pre-Draft Showcase was his 83-85 mph true slider, that flashed big depth at times, was a far superior pitch to what he was throwing earlier in the spring. Rash has definite changeup potential as well. He throws a very nice 81-83 mph change with plus sinking action during warm ups and bullpens, but tends to get a bit over-excited throwing it in games and overthrows it at 85-87 mph, throwing through the sink and deception area. But the pitch is there when he gets the repetitions and confidence to throw it with his established mechanics. One thing scouts may not fully recognize about Rash is just how good an athlete he is. This video shows some of the things that Rash can do on the basketball court; pay attention to the plays at the 3:48 and 4:13 marks. Yes, it’s Iowa high school basketball, but that’s still impressive athleticism on any court.

Alec Rash is a 2012 RHP with a 6-5 200 lb. frame from Adel, IA who attends ADM HS. Loose wiry build, will get stronger but might not add much bulk. Tall delivery with lightning quick, compact arm action, hides ball in back, works downhill well, improved consistency and mechanics since early spring. Electric fastball, 93-95 mph with plenty of 95's, plus sink and bore when down in zone. Much improved breaking ball, more a true slider shape and spin, still inconsistent but flashes plus at times. Overthrows change up in game, shows nice feel for pitch in warm ups. Excellent athlete who keeps improving, very high ceiling talent. Signed with Missouri.

Alec Rash is a 2012 RHP with a 6-5 200 lb. frame from Adel, IA who attends ADM HS. Tall slender athletic build, not the type frame that is going to fill out that much. Tall delivery, gathers over the rubber well, accelerates hard to the plate, high compact arm circle, tight 3/4's release, very fast arm. Fastball topped at 94 mph, comfort zone at 90-92 for 3 innings, consistent run and sink down in zone, spotted FB well after settling down. Flashed quality change up with plus life, tends to overthrow it, best at 78-80 mph. Slurve type breaking ball, caught between slider and curveball, slider shape but not true slider power, can create spin, though. Highest level prospect with three pitches, excellent athleticism and plenty of projection. Signed with Missouri.

Alec Rash is a 2012 RHP with a 6'4'', 180 lb. frame from Adel, IA who attends Adel-DeSoto-Minburn HS. Young athletic build, should get stronger. Very directional delivery, overhand released but not forced, loose arm front and back, throws downhill. Lots of variety in fastball velocity, all the way from 83-89 mph, mostly straight, flashed a decent 77 mph slider and occasional mid 70's change but mostly throws FB's now.
