Foster continues to work hard and develop his skills on the diamond. He has improved in several areas of his game during his time in Arizona. Defensively in the MIF, he shows active footwork and aggressiveness coming to get the ground ball. Exchange is clean and he works in-line toward his target at 1B. Developing more pre-pitch footwork will allow for quicker lateral movements. Offensively, Drew shows good separation and gets back into a loaded position. Swing path is level as he puts the barrel on the ball consistently. Working on hitting the ball where it's pitched and using the opposite field will help to improve his offensive game. Drew is a coachable player who has a willingness to learn and will only continue to progress.

Drew is a 2B/OF that excels offensively. At the dish, he hits from a square stance and with a level barrel. He shows a lot of future potential, as he begins to implement lower half drive. Defensively, he fields with his hands out in front and follows his throws. In order to improve defensive numbers, he needs to significantly improve his foot speed and agility. Overall - Drew is a coachable young guy that works hard and makes adjustments.
