Here's a video of Theo Alexander hitting a grand slam against Juanita

Day two of the 2012 MLB Draft, at around 2:00 p.m. yesterday, the Los Angeles Dodgers decided to take the Lake Washington High School prodigy, Theo Alexander, with the 236 pick (7th Round.) Almost every Major League team was interested in Alexander, and why not? The 6’2 205 pound outfielder was selected 1st Team All-3A/2A King Co this year and is known for his excellent bat; batting .471, with 25 runs batted in and 4 homeruns his senior year at Lake Washington High School.

Theo Alexander did commit to play for UC-Santa Barbara next year, but will most likely sign with the Dodgers and forgo college to pursue his dreams of playing in the bigs. This is a perfect fit for Alexander if he decides to sign, as the Dodgers are known for having a great farm system. They have turned prospects such as Matt Kemp, James Loney and Andre Either into solid players today in the MLB. I’d imagine the Lake Washington star to start out in Single-A and work his way through the minors until he is ready. Remember he’s only 18 years old and still has a lot to learn about the game before he can become the next Matt Kemp or a Dodger superstar.
