01/13/2012 - 2012 Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament This week in Arizona, Skerpon displayed the ability to be consistent with his fielding and get rid of the ball quickly in the infield with accurate throws. His defensive abilities should continue to develop as he learns to create some pre-pitch rhythm and work on getting around groundballs. At the plate, he has quick hands and he stays inside giving him the ability to hit to all fields, but needs to keep his hands working through the hitting zone. On the mound, he has a quick arm action, keeps his eyes on his target, and he has a good direction to the plate. His tools on the mound should continue to improve as he learns to stay tall and create some more extension. Skerpon has the opportunity to showcase and fine tune his skills as he still has 2 seasons remaining.

10/19/2011 - Arizona Junior Fall Classic - 2011 Skerpon is a fast 2B/RHP with a strong build. At second base, he makes accurate throws and has quick feet that allow him to cover ground well, but needs to work on his exchange on double plays. At the plate, he has good hand-eye coordination and shows some power to the pull side. Skerpon's abilities at the plate should continue to develop as he learns to keep his weight back and hit through the baseball. On the mound, he has a fluid arm action and spots up with his fastball well, but needs to utilize his lower half throughout his delivery. With two years of high school baseball remaining, Skerpon has the tools to continue to develop for the next level.

08/10/2011 - Pirate City World Series 2011 - Session 2 Nicholas continues to impress our scouts with his combination of ability and respect to our staff. He shows great makeup both as a player and as a person. He improved his overall 60 yard dash time and showed similarly abilities in all other aspects of his game. He was 4 for 11 at the plate showing the ability to hit the ball on a line. At times he spins and wants to pull the ball too much and needs to stay back and hit the ball the other way that. Defensively he continues to improve his range and makes difficult plays look routine. He needs to be a bit more conscience of his arm angle because it causes his throws to be offline at times. He is a camp favorite of our staff and it shows that he loves to play this game. He will be a player to follow in the years to come.

06/16/2011 - Omaha Pro Select Training and Tournament - Week 1 Skerpon showed as a two-way player at 2B and on the mound for the first time. Currently, he projects best at 2B for the next level where he has really improved his abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a well above average runner at 6.93. Defensive abilities are now outstanding with hands / feet working well together in the fielding process through a low approach. He is sure handed and moves well laterally displaying plus range in the MIF. Throws are accurate, with carry through a quick arm action as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Offensively, Nicholas continues to shine through an aggressive approach. Hands are quick, generating plus bat speed to and through the ball at contact. He utilizes his lower half well with proper weight transfer and shows a feel for the barrel with the baseball jumping off his bat when centered. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 74-77 mph with slight tail. Off-speed pitches are average, needing further development to be quality pitches at the next level. He throws strikes and pitches to contact. Makeup is a plus and with his offensive and defensive abilities, Skerpon has the makings to be a special type MIF at the next level.

05/15/2011 - College PREP - Rochester, NY Nicolas is an athletic young infielder that has a projectable body type. At the plate he shows an athletic stance with a compact load and a balanced approach. He also shows quick hands and an advanced ability to use the middle of the field. Overall his approach is sound and strength and maturity will surely enhance his hitting/power grades. At second base he shows a quick first step with athletic movements to the baseball. He makes consistent throws to his target with average arm strength. Skerpon shows active feet and will be even better with more rhythm in his approach. With above avg. foot speed, an athletic/projectable body type, and some plus tools, Nicolas has a chance to be a pretty good player.

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).
