01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (FL) Ripepi continues to shine and showed his versatility on the diamond in the INF while also stepping onto the mound at the Pre-Season All-America Tournament. As a hitter, he stands in with an open setup, centered balance and fluid rhythm to load. He looks to jump on first pitch FB's and doesn't get cheated, absolutely mashing the ball to the deep parts of the park (exit velo = 98 mph). At 3B, he has active prep with quick lateral actions. He has great energy and aggressively comes to get the GB. Hands are presented out in front as he funnels smoothly to a quick release. He has a cannon for an arm - firing throw with zip (96 mph) across the diamond. On the mound, Andrew throws a FB/CH mix and pounds the zone with strikes. Arm works loose/quick as he commands both pitches well. FB cracks the mitt topping out at 88 mph while showing great arm-side run. CH compliments FB well with run and sink. Andrew is a very talented prospect who will make an impact is a variety of ways in this only his junior season.
