07/15/2018 - Baseball Factory D.C. All Star Experience (Ages 14-18) Manuel Andres is an athletic and talented 2021 2-way prospect that made several adjustments throughout the training weekend. At SS, Manuel is on time with his prep step and sees the ball off the bat well. He funnels the ball into his body and has a clean exchange. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Manuel starts in an open stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He hits off a firm front side, keeps the barrel on plane with the ball, and stays balanced through contact. On the bump, Manuel gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and extends thru his delivery. He is a strike thrower but needs to continue to ride his back leg to the plate to stay directional. Manuel will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
