    A hamstring injury limited Bandura to just eight games in 2022. After the season, he played in the Coastal Plain League and hit just .198/.287/.247 in 96 plate appearances. The 2023 season has been a breakthrough for Bandura, who added strength and showed better barrel awareness en route to hitting .363/.454/.665 in 219 plate appearances for Princeton. At 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, Bandura has a well-proportioned build with more physical projection remaining. He has a fluid lefty swing with good bat control, showing the ability to square up all pitch types routinely with a high contact rate and a solid eye for the strike zone. Bandura has above-average power with exit velocities up to 110 mph. It’s consistently high quality contact because of his ability to hit the ball on the sweet spot routinely, producing an average exit velocity of 93 mph this spring. With a swing path that helps him generate loft, Bandura is able to tap into that power in games and drive the ball for power to all fields. Bandura’s track record is limited and it’s only been against Ivy League pitching, but he has hit well against the better stuff he has faced. A right fielder, Bandura is a fringe-average runner who will need to sharpen his jumps and routes.
