Mandell is an "04" MIF who profiles best as a 2B. At 5'9/160 he's not the biggest guy, but he can play. He's a good baserunner, but doesn't possess great running speed. He has a good arm that really plays best at 2B. He has nice hands and good instincts. He showed a good level swing and stung the ball real well in BP. In the games he didn't show a lot of patience early on, but finished up strong. Zachary is a good student.
PG Grade 6.0

Mandell is a Junior middle infielder from Rhode Island who has some good raw ability. We think he has the potential to elevate his game. He is a shortstop that may project better as a second baseman at the next level. He showed us some agility and body control in the field. He brought a great attitude to the camp willing to learn and make adjustments in a few areas both offensively and defensively. He has a good set of hands and worked hard on keeping the feet moving. Over the two day period he got in a rhythm and not only kept his feet moving through the ball but he stayed lower from his initial up and down body position. He ended up using his legs and body better on his throws. It felt more natural to him and looked more efficient and fluid to us. He initially threw with 70 mph velocity across the infield in the skills portion of ground balls on the first day, and ended up throwing in the mid 70's, with less effort, by the 2nd day. That quick improvement was yet another good sign. At the plate Mandell showed some pop in his bat. He started out a little busy with his body and feet but had hours of practice to work on his pivot, swing and finish. As a result, he showed some nice swings and we saw a few balls come off his bat real fast. He was a better player on the way out of Indy and we think that he will figure it out much more as he spends more time utilizing some of Skeeter Barnes' drills from the hitting cages. Anytime a player can improve this quickly, he has a lot going for him.
