Leo Grad Alger To Pitch In Arizona Fall League

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Leo high school grad and former Indiana Tech standout Brandon Alger will get a chance to pitch against the best prospects in baseball very soon.
Alger has been selected by the Padres to participate in the prestigious Arizona Fall League.
Each major league team selects six or seven prospects from their combined minor league teams – mostly players from the Double-A and Triple-A level.
Alger pitched this past season at Advanced-A Lake Elsinore in the Padres farm system. Pitching out of the bullpen the lefty is 4-3 with a 2.87 ERA. Alger’s thrown 59.2 innings, striking out 69 batters. He’s holding hitters to a .193 average and has a 1.04 WHIP. He’s also racked up 12 saves and 50 appearances – third-most in the California League.
Alger will report to Phoenix in late September, with games beginning on October 7 running through November 13.
Alger was drafted by the Padres in 2012 after his sophomore season at Indiana Tech in the 26th round (795th overall). He briefly pitched for the Fort Wayne TinCaps in 2012, as he was added to the team’s playoff roster, making one appearance.
