03/16/2014 - College PREP - Plainview (Lubbock), TX Nicholas is a stocky, solid 1B that will graduate in 2014. At the plate is where Herrera shows best, displaying solid hitting / power numbers through an open / athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver, displaying clean hands. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he presents hands more out front and increases foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Nicholas has potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
