04/14/2019 - College PREP - Louisville, KY Nick is a strong, athletic C/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.08 range with accuracy and carry on his throws as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone through an athletic setup. Athletic abilities are shown off through the blocking process as he utilizes his body well and deadens balls out front. At the plate, he displays outstanding hitting / power potential through a closed setup. Hands are quick (88 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 80-83 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break and shows potential as being a quality pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. He throws a slider that resembles his breaking ball but is slightly harder. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Nick has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches, possibly as a two-way guy.
