12/27/2014 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 Nicholas is a hard hitting backstop that has good projection as an offensive powerhouse. Behind the plate, Nicholas showed good blocking angles and communication with pitchers. He will benefit from softening his hands to receive pitches. At the plate, he showed a strong, aggressive approach with quick hands and gap pop. When he trusts his pace and keeps his balance, he really shows strong hit potential. In all - adding consistency to his 'flashes of brilliance' will make him an impact/reliable guy at the next level.
