Alex Rao is a 2018 RHP/1B, 3B with a 6-4 240 lb. frame from Hobe Sound, FL who attends Oxbridge Academy. Extra-large, athletic frame with broad shoulders and present strength proportioned nicely throughout frame. Primary righthanded pitcher, begins delivery with high leg lift up past belt and shows a full hands over the head start, shorter arm action through the back working to a three-quarters arm slot, does a nice job of generating extension out front. Lands slightly closed with strike foot, some drop and drive to delivery but gets on top of ball well. Fastball topped out at 86 mph, mostly true in life, shows ability to work either side of the plate and induce ground ball contact. Short depth to curveball with 11-5 shape at 72 mph, maintains arm action and arm speed on changeup nicely generating short fading life to arm side. Righthanded hitter, begins with a high hand set and back elbow in the box, uses a leg lift trigger for timing. Uses strength well to generate bat speed through the zone, ball comes off the barrel nicely when squared. Full and fluid stroke with extension out front, looks to lift the ball, consistent swing path with steady contact to pull side. Excellent student.
