09/21/2014 - College PREP - Detroit, MI Nicholas is an athletic OF with good range. Defensively, his quick 1st step is what allows him to track down balls with speed and efficiency. He fields the ball cleanly, gathers well and fires accurate throws into his target. Developing a quicker transfer and throwing downhill will allow his arm to excel even more. At the plate, he has a square setup with good balance. His head is quiet which allows him track the pitch into the zone and connect hitting line-drives. Loosening up his swing and creating back spin will allow for more gap-to-gap power. Mariner possesses the tools to be a next level type player.
