12/15/2013 - College PREP - Madison (NYC), NJ Nicholas is a skilled 2-way player as a SS/RHP who can pick it defensively. At SS, he has quick/active footwork in his approach and shows fluid actions throughout fielding the ground ball. He has a quick transfer and gets the ball across the diamond accurately. At the plate, Nicholas shows smooth rhythm, getting back into a strong loaded position. He delivers the barrel quickly to and through the zone, which results in line-drives. On the bump, this RHP remains compact in his delivery. He has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot and loose arm-action. FB tops out at 75 mph while showing arm-side run. He keeps his eyes on the target and is around the plate with all of his pitches. Decandia is a talented player who should have success this upcoming season.
