Strengths:

Alonso is one of the best pure hitters in the country. He uses the whole field, works counts and also has the plus power to hit the ball out of the park to any field. He was Baseball America’s consensus choice as the top hitter in the Cape Cod League.

Weaknesses:

All of his value lies in his bat. He’ll be limited to first base as a pro and doesn’t have the athleticism or the defensive aptitude to become even an average defender or runner.

The Future:

Top 15 draft picks.
