09/02/2012 - National Tryout - Kansas City, MO Nick showed as a RHP and in the OF for the first time where he projects best for the next level. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work on getting behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target and increase foot speed to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but needs to get on a long toss program to aid in building more am strength. At the plate, Becker shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed to and through the ball at contact. He needs to work to stay closed and keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields and improve hitting grade. Power numbers will increase as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, fastball showed good arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with slight break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup showing good arm side run. Slider shows tight spin but little movement. He needs to throw more strikes to continue to raise stock on the mound.
