  • 2BPosition Projection

07/14/2017 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Nicholas continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At 2B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are aggressive in attacking balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is soft / clean and presents well out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will continue to improve as he works to utilize his lower half more aggressively. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

01/16/2017 - College PREP - Mesa (Phoenix), AZ Nicholas is a versatile 2020 athlete who can play multiple positions on the field. His defense in the outfield is excellent as he shows the range to track down balls in the gaps others can't. His first step is quick and aggressive and he takes efficient routes to the ball to make the most of his range. He fields low and in an athletic position and comes through the ball with momentum to his target to throw. At second he displays the quick hands needed from a middle infielder to make DP turn and feeds. He fields square to the ball and knocks everything down to keep it in front. At the dish, this RHH shows rhythm to stride and launch with separation between his hips and hands. He keeps his head down throughout his swing and has clean mechanics to make contact and put the ball in play to pressure the defense. Incorporating his lower half more will lead to more bat speed and harder contact. Nicholas is an intriguing prospect who we think will develop nicely into a solid ballplayer.

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 (what he can do today), 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. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
