In the games he only showcased as a RHP and he pounds the zone with his 3 pitch mix. He stays down in the zone with his fastball, curve has an 11/5 shape with good depth, and his change has good sink. In the infield he has quick feet, sure hands, and has good range. He is aggressive to the ball and stays under control with his body. Andrew has a quick exchange and he makes accurate throws across the diamond. Offensively he has a smooth load, good balance, and a nice rhythm. He is aggressive with his approach and makes consistent contact. He stays in the middle of the field with his approach and he can spray the ball to all fields. With Andrew's athleticism and unique set of skills, he should be a viable option at the next level.

Andrew is a young player who is not only talented but has a great work ethic. In the infield, he has a good pre-pitch setup/routine, a good athletic fielding position and soft/sure hands. He has good quick footwork and a loose arm action with good carry on his throws. He can work on playing through the baseball and getting his momentum moving towards his target. He has a tendency to sit back on the ball instead of attacking it. On the mound he has the ability to pitch with both hands, although his pitching grades are a bit higher as a RHP. Andrew shows good body control and the ability to reach a balance point and separate on time. His tempo from the right side is more repeatable, but some of that stems from him being more of a hang-reader from the stretch as a LHP. He can work on finishing his pitches aggressively and landing in an athletic fielding position. At the plate, Andrew has good mechanics. He has a good load/stride, good balance and gets his lower half through well. Hands work well inside the ball and he has good bat speed. He can work on his finish and maximizing extension through the point of contact. Overall, Andrew is a solid player with lots of upside.
