Nicholas continues to show plus abilities in his play in the OF and at the plate. Feet are quick, athletic, and aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls and works to get behind balls, playing through well with momentum to his target. He moves well laterally, displaying range in the OF. Throws are accurate with carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, generating plus bat speed through a short / direct path. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball exploding off his bat when centered. Mental makeup is a plus as he plays hard and is very coachable.

Nick is a broad built, 2014 outfielder that can swing it. Offensively, he has an athletic/open setup and generates fast bat speed - with flashes of explosive bat speed. He makes consistently hard contact with natural rhythm and timing. Defensively, he has fluid/active footwork and is able to work behind and through balls. Nick covers the gaps, but will benefit from increasing his agility even more. Overall, he is a strong prospect that has potential to be an impact guy at the next level.
