10/28/2018 - National Tryout Plus - Joplin, MO
Nathan is an OF/SS prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the field. In the OF, Nathan shows active footwork and fields in an athletic position. He makes the routine plays and works to make accurate throws to his target. Increasing his lateral range can help Nathan improve as an OF. At SS, Nathan gets into a square position and fields with a firm glove. He throws from a 3/4 angle and works to make accurate throws to his target. Nathan can improve as a SS by making a quicker exchange to throw. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a square stride. He works to barrel up the baseball and drives to all fields. Working a smoother load into his swing can help Nathan improve as a hitter. With four more years to develop, Nathan has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Nathan is an athletic and talented 2022 SS prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments throughout the week. At SS, Nathan field the ball in a low and athletic position. He presents a low/early glove, and makes the routine play. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. Anticipating balls off the bat will improve his first step quickness as well. At the plate, Nathan starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and has good pitch recognition. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside rotation, and get his front foot down on time. Nathan will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
