When receiving, he presents a low target, and works behind the ball.

When throwing, he has a clean exchange, he gains ground, and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Andrew starts in an open stance, he loads his hands back, and attacks the inside part of the ball. He rotates his backside and has a line drive approach. On the bump, Andrew gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a clean arm action. He throws his fastball for strikes, he gets medium break on his curveball, and throws his changeup down in the zone. He needs to continue to ride his backside and work north to south in his delivery. Andrew continues to improve and we’re excited to see his progress in the future.
