Latest Showcase Report
2007 Midwest Top Prospect Showcase   Sep 29, 2007
PG Grade: 7.5
Andrew Kraus is a 2009 OF with a 5'11'', 176 lb. frame from Strawberry Point, IA who attends Starmont HS. He has a good frame with plenty of upper body strength. Kraus worked out in both the infield and outfield during drills and is clearly more comfortable in the outfield. He has good outfield fielding fundamentals and a strong, accurate throwing arm. Kraus is a left handed hitter with an aggressive power type swing. He has some tenseness in his hands and upper body and unleashes it with a long wrapped swing that has plenty of bat speed and some lift at the end. Kraus is going to drive some balls hard and swing through some other pitches and he did both at the showcase. His best contact was to centerfield and he has the ability to drive the ball the other way, which is good to see in a young hitter. Kraus is a 7.50 runner. He is a good student.
