10/04/2017 - Arizona Sophomore Fall Classic Elijah is an athletic, LHH OF who brings energy to the field. He has a solid all-around skill-set that can make a difference both offensively and defensively. As a hitter, this lefty stands in with and athletic/crouched setup with good balance and a solid base. He tracks pitches into the zone and off of the barrel, squaring the ball up with pop consistently. Hands are quick as he whips the barrel through the zone aggressively and creates good extension through contact. The ball jumps off of his barrel as he sprays to all parts of the field. He battles and proved to be a tough out, going an impressive 8 for 9 with 5 singles, 2 doubles and a triple. Once on base, he's a threat to steal with his speed (6.83) which is a game changer. In the OF, Elijah covers a ton of ground. He takes a quick first step and gets great reads of balls hit to his right and left. Transfer is smooth as he works through the ball and fires accurate throws on a line into his target. Nunez is a coachable player who makes adjustments quickly. This 2020 grad is fun to watch and is surely one to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.
