College baseball: Andreychik makes smooth transition to Bucknell


Andreychik's three pitchers are fastball, slider and change-up.

"When I'm not hitting my spots as well as I would like to with my fastball or slider, I usually go to the change-up to get the hitters off balance," he said.

Andreychik came into the fall portion of the season as a two-way player.

"He's going to get an opportunity to play a position as well," Heather added on Andreychik's future. "In the fall, he got a chance to hit and play the infield and he did fine out there. He's going to have the chance to compete at those spots next year as we had a senior-laden group in the infield this year. He had a chance to help us on the mound and we needed him there."

Heather noted that Andreychik's velocity has increased from the fall and he's been consistently throwing in the mid-80s.

Andreychick, who hit .354 in his senior year at Danville, will play summer ball for the Surfside Sting Rays in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
