Nathan is an athletic SS prospect who will graduate in 2023. At the Pro Training event he would immediately impress scouts with his readiness and overall energy, these are great attributes he needs to continue to show in his game. In the infield, he showed great agility, quickness, and feel for his position. This on top of a very accurate 83 mph arm velocity will help boost him to the next level in his career. Not only did he shine at short, Nathan posted well above average ratings in not only hitting but his power as well. This was displayed through his loose hands, simple load, and controlled rhythm. As he gets into the weight room a little more, we project Nathan will do special things in his career.

He moves well right to left into an athletic fielding position, presents his glove and fields the ball out in front with soft hands. Transfer is quick/clean with carry/accuracy on his throws across the diamond. With the bat, this lefty shows an athletic/open stance with quiet/simple actions. He has smooth rhythm to load, swings on a short/direct path and squares the ball up with pop, hitting line-drives back up the middle of the field. Garza is a talented MIF prospect who has a ton of upside.
