Showed lots of feel for the game throughout the weekend defensively. Threw very well across the diamond up to 85 MPH. Hits from the right side with an athletic stance. Solid base with a controlled load who makes hard contact. Rotates hips into a firm front side with a fast bat through the zone. Direct bat path with strength at contact. Attacks the baseball with ability to backspin balls into both gaps. In live game action, Nicholas reached base 7 times with and a bat exit velocity of 84mph.
