Andrew is a lean, athletic ballplayer who shows the ability to play multiple positions on the field. Defense at the hot corner is his calling card as his instincts and athleticism allow him to make the tough plays expected from a corner infielder. He shows quick lateral movements and a strong glove angle to cleanly field hard hit balls. He also gets rid of the ball quickly to make accurate feeds and throws across the diamond. Behind the plate, he works around pitches to receive and present them in the zone. He is a willing blocker whose quick footwork allows him to smother the ball and recover quickly. Staying low to throw will result in quicker release times and more runners thrown out. At the dish, he works to drive the ball to the middle of the field with a compact swing and direct path. He gets on plane early with a strong bat angle and extends through contact to make hard contact for line drives to all fields. Andrew is an intriguing prospect who looks primed for a big senior season.

Andrew is an athletic 2018 prospect who can play multiple positions on the field. He is an exciting defensive catcher with advanced instincts and fluid actions behind the plate. At the dish, he has good rhythm and balance throughout his swing with a strong lower half that gets through quickly. He lets the ball travel deep into the zone and then launches, using all fields with the ability to drive the ball.

Behind the plate, he uses his athleticism well to get down to block quickly and has firm hands to deaden the ball.
