Alex Bregman is one of the better-known catching commodities in the country. Playing primarily in the middle infield his prep career, over the last year Bregman has made the transition to catcher and has thrived. His frame is solid (5-foot-11, 180 pounds) and has a very good arm behind the dish. Of course as with any prep catching prospect, they will always have to work on receiving and blocking. Bregman already has a good natural feel behind the plate.
The one thing that separates Bregman from everyone else is his bat. Not being the biggest and strongest player on his team, he sure swings like it. He has a very mature approach to the plate, a good level swing and has quiet power. He is also a good runner posting 6.8-7.0 seconds in the 60-yard dash.
Bregman is currently committed to play at Louisiana State University.
