As the Rays closer in 2016, Alex went on to have a breakout season. As a member of the All-Star team, he racked up 37 saves and had an impressive ERA of 1.91 while going 2-4.
He had a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 71 in 56 2/3 innings pitched. For the Dominicans, he was instrumental in their victory over the World Baseball Classic champions, the United States, in 2017.
With 47 saves, he ranked first in the American League with a 3.24 earned run average in 2017. However, he appeared in 65 games and pitched 66.2 innings with a 58% to 23% K/BB ratio.
