09/10/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Fresno, CA Nicholas is a stud SS/OF with an athletic build. Defensively at SS, he moves well laterally as he works into a square fielding position on GB's. He has a clean exchange and mixes arm slots with his throws. In the OF, he makes good reads off the bat as he works behind the fly ball. He takes an athletic crow hop and fires the ball on-line to his target. With the stick, Nicholas is a power hitter. He explodes his lower 1/2, swings on-plane through the zone and drives pitches with pop from gap to gap. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Infield 1. Quicker footwork 2. Work around the GB 3. Arm strength (long toss) Outfield 1. Lateral quickness 2. Get other hand up 3. Play through more Offense 1. Smooth rhythm 2. More lower 1/2 drive 3. Contact points
