From the Field: Andrew Calica, of, Cleveland Indians

Andrew Calica was drafted in the 11th round of the 2016 draft by the Indians out of UC Santa Barbara.

To say that Calica hit the ground running as a pro would be a bit of an understatement. Between the short season and Low-A he went .359/.405/.513 with 3 HR and 15 SB. He also had a nice 17/27 BB to K ratio as well.

In college Calica was an on-base machine. He does not have a ton of power, but has developed enough to keep pitchers honest. He is athletic enough to play center field, though I would not be surprised to see him shift to left as he progresses through the system.

I think he is a pretty exciting prospect. As an advanced college hitter, his numbers in 2016 against Low-A pitchers should not have been a huge surprise. But if he can do the same in High-A…he might move fast and could easily be with the Indians as a 4th OF type by late 2018 or 2019
