Hit 55 60 Quick twitch; swing path is level but can show some occasional lift; plus bat speed; explosive hands and quick wrists contribute to quick, athletic stroke; premium barrel control; feel for the strike zone, covers plate well; room for improvement with his balance when handling breaking balls.

Power 50 55 Currently more of a gap-power hitter who flashes over-the-fence power; good lift; ball jumps off the bat; most power to pull side; physical growth and continued feel for the zone should allow his plus bat speed to play up in hitters' counts, resulting in above-average power.

Run 50 45 Useable speed; not much of a stolen base threat; moves well in the field; better underway; aggressive on the bases; will lose a step as he fills out.

Glove 45 55 Athletic in the field, some flash; has the ingredients to stay at third base though significant error totals the last three years; athleticism and quick hands allow him to get to balls that require tough throws, which he can make; improved decisionmaking will help mitigate errors.

Arm 70 70 Loose motion; double-plus arm strength works from multiple angles; throws have carry to target, and occasionally over; improved accuracy will allow arm strength to play up even more.

Overall Description
Athletic, above-average everyday third baseman with a plus bat and a rocket of a right arm. He showcased his explosive hands and plus bat speed when he crushed a fastball off the left-field wall for a triple in my view. Has feel for the zone as he laid off some tough breaking balls, but balance can be improved facing breaking stuff. Will add to home run totals as body continues to mature with some 20 home run seasons a realistic ceiling. While his arm is his carrying tool, it is a bit of a double-edged sword. He is a good athlete so he has the range gets to balls others don't, but can get in trouble making risky throws given the confidence he has in his arm. His error totals should decrease as he gets more reps and learns how to most effectively use his carrying tool. Not a big stolen-base treat, but displays good speed underway. With no significant road block at the big league level, I like the chances of Andujar earning his pinstripes after one more solid season moving through the upper minors.
