Ran a 6.81 60-yard dash. In the OF, shows quick/fluid feet and good agility in the OF with ability to cover ground in all directions. Good 1st step reads enable to create good angles. Works behind and through the ball with a 1-hand high catch. Aggressive routes to balls and fields from an athletic/low fielding position. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot coming forward, with a short arm action, and an arm velocity of 72mph into infield. At 2B, he shows same quick/fluid feet and athletic actions. Works around the baseball and fields from an athletic/square fielding position and fields out front. Attacks the baseball, with good angles, and accurate/on-line throws. At the plate, he begins with an athletic and open stance. Good timing to swing, with quick hands and a late bat whip, and has a middle of the field approach. Flat/direct barrel path as he hit line drives to all fields with a bat exit velocity of 80mph during his round of BP. With 2 years of continued growth and development, we foresee this 2-way prospect having opportunities to play at the next level.

07/27/2021 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (HS) Nicholas is a coachable 2022 OF/2B prospect out of Rancho Cucamonga, CA who worked hard on his skills during the National World Series at Pirate City. In the field, Nicholas shows active footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body. His exchange is clean and he gains ground well on his throws, keeping them accurate to his target. Long tossing can help Nicholas build up his arm strength. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and takes a short stride. He is controlled getting his hands activated in his load and drives through well with his lower half. He works through a compact swing and sprays line drives to all fields. Nicholas can create more consistent contact by taking a square stride toward the pitcher. Overall, Nicholas is a solid prospect who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field. We look forward to seeing what his future holds.

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).
