2016 MLB Draft: Dodgers take high school RHP A.J. Alexy in 11th round

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

With their first pick of Saturday, the Dodgers selected high school right-hander A.J. Alexy with their 11th-round pick in the 2016 MLB Draft, pick No. 341 overall.

The 6'4 right-hander was the subject of national news in May when he threw 164 pitches in a nine-inning win for Twin Valley High School in Everson, Penn.

Alexy was ranked No. 327 on the Baseball America top 500, with this note:

His fastball has been mostly 88-92 this spring, and he's flashed the ability to locate his changeup down in the zone. His curveball shows top-to-bottom action, but it will need more power to develop into an average offering, though it flashes tight spin currently.

Alexy is committed to play college ball at Radford.
