Nathan is an OF/RHP prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the diamond. In the field, Nathan shows active footwork and covers ground well. He gets into a low position and fields the ball out in front of his body. His exchange is quick and he gains ground well on his throws, keeping them on-line with carry through his target. Long tossing can help Nathan build up his arm strength. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a closed stance and takes his stride on time. He gets into his load and hits against a strong front side. He works through a direct swing with good extension and drives the ball from gap to gap. Nathan can create more consistent contact by loosening his grip on the bat. On the mound, Nathan keeps his eyes on target and works inline toward the plate. He operates with a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 67mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 55-56mph with 10-4 break. Changeup sits from 57-58mph as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Gathering to a balance point over the rubber can help Nathan improve his pitch command. With three more years to develop, Nathan has the time and potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

Nate is a young, coachable OF who will graduate in 2024. Defensively, Nate has active feet, agile movements to the ball, and he attacks aggressively. He presents his glove well, fields in an athletic position, and throws with accuracy from a quick arm action to his target. A quicker 1st step and not drifting to the ball will help defense improve. Offensively, Nate has a square/athletic setup, he loads well, and swings in good rhythm. He has good balance, a short/direct barrel to the ball, and he can spray to all fields. Added bat speed and strength will help hitting continue to improve. We look forward to seeing what the future holds.
