Andrew has very good knowledge of the game and is very coachable. Defensively, he has excellent footwork, takes good angles to the ball and had nice glove work. Actions are athletic/smooth as he moves right to left through the ball and fires accurate/strong throws to 1B. Backhand play is easy as he works from the ground-up. Offensively, he tracks the ball into the hitting zone, showing good zone awareness. Swing path is short as he connects and finishes with extension. Once on base he is aggressive and works to get into scoring position. This athletic righty has skills and will make an impact on the diamond.

Feist continues to show a lot of improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has really improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.15 runner. Defensive grade has improved as well, now showing outstanding skills as he displays smooth / clean actions. He moves well laterally, displaying range in the MIF and attacks ground balls, playing through well with momentum to his target. Hands are soft / sure as he displays big play potential. Throws are accurate with carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate, hitting / power grades are now solid as he displays an athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to work on time.

Andrew is an athletic player who is coachable and willing to learn. In the field, he shows sure/soft hands with quick/active feet. His range is agile, working from right to left doing a great job playing through the ball. Andrew shows solid fundamentals but at times is over aggressive causing him to field the ball deep. He can make sure he breaks down his feet in order to control his body. At the plate, Andrew has a very consistent swing with the ability to drive the ball to all fields. He shows a good lower half, level swing path and good bat speed for his age. He can continue to work on making sure he gets his front foot down early enough while focusing on letting the ball travel. Andrew is a great kid who plays hard and really it really shows that he loves the game.
