Andrew has soft hands in the infield with solid actions defensively and clean arm action across the infield. At the plate, he hits from a slightly open stance with a no stride approach.

McDonnell is a 6-2, 180 lb senior right handed pitcher from Pennsylvania with a solid lower half. He throws from a tall delivery with a short stride and a high 3/4's release point. His arm stroke is short front and back and his lack of extension out front hurts his raw stuff. McDonnell's fastball was 79-81 mph with occasional cutting action. He threw a 63 mph curveball that had a soft, sweeping break to it. McDonnell's 65 mph change up was a good pitch and he could use it more often with good effect. McDonnell showed the willingness to pitch inside and tried to locate his pitches. He also showed some talent as a infielder who profiles to third base. McDonnell has smooth and balanced fielding actions and a quick release that's consistent with his short arm stroke on the mound. He swings the bat pretty well to. McDonnell is also a good student.

Andrew is a young strong bodied 6-2/175 lb. pitcher from Newtown Square, Pennsylvania with a strong lower half and athletic frame. He is a rocker style pitcher with good balance and a short, H3/4 arm slot. He shows the ability to pound the inside corner on right handed batters and work the outer half on lefties. When he stays on top of his 80mph fastball it shows lots of promise. He has a tendency to increase his tempo resulting in a loss of control from a lowered arm slot. This can easily be fixed. His curve is 61-62mph with a 10-4 rotation and of average depth, due to a slowed arm in his delivery. This is an easly fixed problem. His change is a nice pitch at 67-68mph and well developed for a 2006 graduate. He is young and needs some refinement to maintain a repeatable delivery, but he has a large upside if he continues to develop. One to watch in the next couple of years. At 6'2/175 he projects very nicely. Andrew is a good student.
