One thing we’re beginning to appreciate about Lentz is that he’s a "game" player whose skills are much better evaluated in live competition. He can look a bit stiff in all areas of the game during workouts but when there are umpires on the field instead of scouts, he’s a different player. Lentz’s approach at the plate is very polished and professional from the left side. He hits from a slightly open stance and has the ability to drive the ball hard to all fields and we’ve seen him hit some balls out of big parks when he turns on it. Lentz has average game speed and ran 4.2 down to first in Fort Myers. Defensively, we’re glad to see Lentz settled down at second base, where his bat will be a big plus. He’s not going to be a spectacular defensive infielder but he made all the plays and performed with confidence. Lentz has signed to attend U. of Washington. Scouts really need to look at his bat carefully.

Andy is the latest in the string of Lentz family prospects, following his father and brother. It’s kind of hard to classify Andy as a high profile prospect right now because after the PG National, it’s very hard to determine what is his best position. Lentz played mostly outfield in Lincoln and looked like he would be average to above average defensively in right field with his athleticism and above average arm strength (91 mph). Andy is close to an average runner, at least in the 60, but at the college level it wouldn’t be surprising to see him excel in centerfield. He shows outstanding instincts and a great feel for the game. We’re more intrigued by Lentz as an infielder. He definitely has the arm to play second or third base, especially with his short, quick release, and from what we saw, Lentz has the actions and hands to handle the infield. The further he can play up the defensive spectrum, the better his bat will play. And we really like Lentz’s bat from the left side. He hit a home run over the right centerfield fence during game competition and showed a really nice, sound approach at the plate. In fact, the home run was kind of a surprise, as Lentz had shown a good line drive stroke and solid bat speed, but not the kind of loft that you’d expect a 390 foot home run with a wood bat. It will be very interesting to see how Lentz develops between now and next June. Every tool projects out in the 45 to 55 range now, but there’s plenty of room in some of those areas to bump the projection up. Especially as an infielder. Andy can play at the very highest levels and he's a good student.
