Prep Baseball Report

PBR ProCase West - Alexander Mercurius


Nick Rupp
Nevada Scouting Director

The PBR ProCase - West was an Invite Only event for the top draft prospect in California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah’s 2024 and 2025 Classes that will feature a Pro-Style Workout with Live Game Play to follow at the University of Southern California on Sunday, June 4, 2023. This event will serve as the final identifier for the inaugural 2023 PBR All-American Game where the top 2024 and 2025 prospects from around the country will go head to head in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at American Family Field. 

This event featured the complete Prep Baseball Report Tech Package that includes a Vizual Edge assessment, TrackMan Pitching / Hitting Analysis and Blast Motion In-Swing Analysis. The technology used at the PBR ProCase - West parallels the technology used by professional teams to monitor and evaluation performance within their own organizations and has become a streamlining feature in the evaluation of amateur athletes compared to players currently in their system.

We continue our PBR ProCase Highlight series with Nevada's #6 ranked 2025, uncommitted, Alexander Mercurius

Scouting Report

6/04/23

Alexander Mercurius, Durango (NV), 2025
Positional Profile: SS/OF Bulldog mentality with the velocity and improved secondary mix to back it up. Consistent quality outings with more to come as he matures physically.
Body: 5-9, 177-pounds. Compact, strong build. Present strenght on display on the mound, helping him get down the mound. Still projected to stretch out a bit which would allow for more size and strength to be added.
Delivery: Compact, athletic delivery. Easy tempo, but works with pace. Drop and drive type. Lands on line. Gets down the mound well with some fall towards the glove side.
Arm Action: RH. Compact, quick arm cycle. 3/4 to high 3/4 slot. Repeats well on each of his pitches. Present looseness with more velo to come.
FB: T92, 88-92 mph. Locates well with some flashes of cut. T2261, 2088 average rpm.
SL: 75-79 mph. Tunnels well of his fastball. Effective to both RHH/LHH. Present tightness with more to come as he continues to add strength. T2436, 2353 average rpm.
CH: 78-78 mph. T1913, 1913 average rpm.
