Madison Preseason I.D.: 2022 Infielder Analysis


By Wisconsin Staff

On Sunday, March 15, the PBR Wisconsin team hosted its final showcase on its winter calendar, the Madison Preseason I.D., at GRB Academy in Windsor, Wis. In the days following the event, we published rapid analysis on the day’s top performers inside our Quick Hits and Statistical Analysis posts.

This week already, we’ve broken down the event’s catchers, outfielders, and we’ve begun to drop reports on the infielders at the showcase, starting with the juniors in attendance.

We’re onto the class of 2022 infielders who took reps in Madison last March and you can find them all below.

Recent Minnesota commit Luke Ross (Waunakee) leads the way with his easy left-handed bat – it’s a smooth stroke that can generate sneaky pop. That being said, Ross may be an even better prospect on the mound.

Jenkin Alexander (Sun Prairie) was one of the bigger 2022 risers in our minds after putting on an impressive display with the bat from the left side. Alexander will likely see a climb in the state rankings as well.
