04/30/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Phoenix, AZ Nicholas is a 3B/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Defensively at 3B, he takes aggressive lateral routes as he works into an athletic fielding position. He plays the in-between hops well and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. On the hill, this RHP delivers from a lo 3/4 arm slot with clean arm action. He repeats his delivery as he commands his pitches in and around the zone. Offensively at the plate, Nicholas uses an aggressive approach. He strides short to the ball and looks to drive pitches back up through the middle of the field.
