01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament
Nathan is a huge (6'4”, 185), young two-way prospect with loads of potential on the diamond. He shows natural actions at third with active prep and efficient angles to field the ball centered in his body. Hands are clean to field and funnel in to get rid of the ball across the infield. At the plate, he gets on plane early and fires through the zone to and through contact with pull side pop. On the bump, he features a three-pitch mix including an upper 70's heater, a 10-4 curve and a deceptive changeup. A low 3/4 arm slot provides deception and keeps hitters off balance. Nathan has the project-ability and potential to be a big-time prospect.
