Name: Andrew Jacob Yerzy
Born: Jul 5, 1998 in North York, Ontario Canada
High School: York Mills Collegiate Institute, Toronto
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 215 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (52nd overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2016 (signed for $1,214,100)
Yerzy homered in last summer's Under Armour All-American Game at Wrigley Field and has shown consistent hitting ability and present power from the left side. He's shown the ability to handle velocity at the plate with Canada's junior national team, playing top competition in trips to Florida and Arizona in the fall and spring. He's a tough profile for the draft in some ways, though, because of his lack of a defensive home. While he's improved behind the plate, he has fringy arm strength and some stiffness in his strong, 6-foot-3, 215-pound frame. Many scouts see him moving to first base, and it may be tough to buy him out of his Notre Dame commitment.
