10/17/2010 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Nathan is a young, lanky, 3rd baseman that also plays Basketball. Defensively, Nathan makes plays on balls hit his way and shows playable hands. He moves okay laterally, he makes plays with his backhand, and he throws accurately with carry across the diamond. Defensive numbers can further improve if Nathan can use his feet more and field the ball more aggressively. At the plate, Nathan has a square set-up, short stride, and good balance. He has average bat speed, a level swing, and he works the ball up the middle of the field. Nathan has a line drive approach at the plate, and his numbers can spike if he can lower his back elbow, throw his hands more directly to the ball, and add physical strength.
