People look at Andrews’ 5-foot-6 frame and chuckle. Then he gets on the field, and the laughing stops. A 40th-round pick by the Dodgers out of Cabrillo (Calif.) JC last year, Andrews transferred to Long Beach State and became the Dirtbags No. 1 starter, going 7-7, 1.99 with 118 strikeouts and 17 walks in 99.2 innings. Not only did he bat for himself when he pitched, but he was Beach’s leadoff hitter. On the days he didn’t pitch, he was their starting center fielder. Andrews batted in every game and hit .302 with 13 stolen bases. Most pro teams prefer Andrews as a pitchability lefty. His fastball sits 86-88 mph and touches 90 but plays up with his elite command, his slurvy mid-70s breaking ball projects average and his slightly above average changeup neutralizes righties. His lack of pure stuff has other teams more in him as position player, where his above-average contact ability and plus speed help him profile in center. Andrews’ size—his 5-6 listing may even be a little generous—has some teams uninterested, but others are on him.
