Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 1B/LHPPosition Projection

12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Nicholas is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect. On the bump, Nicholas shows confidence and competes. He gathers over the rubber, stays directional, and works over the front side. He needs to continue to separate on time and create backside drive toward the plate. His fastball tops out at 63 and he has good command of his changeup. At the plate, Nicholas was aggressive on the fastball and got a nice base hit. He needs to continue to keep a quiet head and be on time for the fastball. Nicholas will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

10/14/2018 - Interactive Video Program - Uniondale (Long Island), NY Nicholas is a tall, athletic, 2-way player who plays 1B and LHP. Defensively, Nicholas has active feet, presentable hands, and he moves with good agility to the ball. He has smooth actions, a clean exchange, and throws with carry and consistency to his target. On the mound, Nicholas has a loose arm action, he stands over the rubber well balanced, and gets good extension on his pitches.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
