Nick is a strong, athletic 2B who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.28. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting with outstanding power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (95 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has excellent strength in his swing with the baseball coming off the bat a little differently with gap-to-gap pop. At 2B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / sure and he presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Nick has the makings of special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
