08/05/2012 - College PREP - Council Bluffs (Omaha), IA Nate is a young, athletic catcher who will graduate in 2015. Behind the plate, Nate has sure hands, quick feet, and he fields in a square position. He is quick to block, his exchange is clean, and he throws with decent accuracy to his target. A lower target, not opening his front side early, and better throwing accuracy will help defense get better. At the plate, Nate has a square set-up, a short stride, and quick hand. He has fast bat speed, a level swing, and he gets his lower 1/2 through. Not spinning off the ball and better balance can help hitting abilities improve.
