PG Grade: 9.5
Andrew Velazquez is a 2012 SS/OF with a 5-10 175 lb. frame from Bronx, NY who attends Fordham Prep. Short athletic build, compact strength. 6.55 runner, defensively, quick feet, soft hands, can play both SS and 2B, charges the ball aggressively, probably profiles best at second base in the future. Has played centerfield in the past, plus defender at that position but more future value at second base. Switch hitter, equal ability both sides, good balanced set up, gets loaded, quick hands, short path to the ball, good bat speed, has some lift on his pitch, polished hitter who performs in games. Nice all around tools and the ability to play the game.
