"(Doyle) Alexander usually starts batters off with a slider, which he keeps low. He will come back with breaking balls, spot the fastball on the corner, then tinker with a change, whether ahead or behind in the count. He does not give in to batters by walking them, and will make them hit a low breaking ball if he can." - The Scouting Report: 1984
