04/13/2014 - College PREP - Grand Rapids, MI Nicholas is a sophomore RHP with a 6'/160 lbs frame. On the mound, he throws three pitches, with exceptional feel for his off-speed. His change-up is his best pitch, currently, being thrown from 64-67 MPH with sink and flashes of command. His CB has tight spin and is thrown from 63-65 MPH. Despite his velo sitting from 78-80 MPH, we believe his pitches are effective and the fastball shows promise as he begins to strengthen and add a throwing program. Mechanically, he has a smooth delivery, good direction, rhythm & a repeatable tempo. With the bat, he stays level with the barrel and has good rhythm to get him to his hitting position. He is able to get good extension through contact and will continue to hit with more authority as he loosens his grip and gets on-time. In all - Nicholas is a projectable hurler that has another couple of seasons to add velo and feel for all three pitches.
