Alex Rivers is a 2006 right handed pitcher from Tokay HS in Lodi, CA, with a 5'10", 150 lb. frame. He has a lean, lively body with plenty of quick twitch muscles like a shortstop. Rivers throws from a slow, easy delivery with a short arm action in back that hides the ball well. His arm action is very quick and clean, resulting in a 89 mph fastball that looks like it jumps on hitters late. Rivers has the ability to work up the ladder with his fastball and get hitters to swing at pitches up and out of the strike zone. His 72 mph curveball is very sharp and has a steep downer break to it. His 78 mph change up has some fade. Hitters took some poor swings off Rivers offerings during his two innings of work. Rivers is also a prospect level shortstop. He ran the 60 in 7.08 and threw 86 mph from shortstop during drills. He has clean fielding mechanics and actions. His bat plays, too. Rivers is a high level 2-way prospect. He is also a good student who has signed with Santa Clara.
