Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 2B/RHPPosition Projection

04/17/2011 - National Tryout - Stockton (Sacramento), CA Medrano showed similar abilities as we had previously seen at the Preseason All-America weekend. Defensively, he is a sound, a fundamental defender that makes the plays. Glove action is soft, clean, and sure that is presented out front. Throws show carry but needs to work on his accuracy. Offensively, Nick shows an athletic setup with hands working inside the ball as he utilizes all fields. He shows a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power numbers will continue to rise as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 76-79 mph on a flat plane. Breaking ball is best off speed pitch showing 12/6 downward shape with gradual break.

01/14/2011 - Under Armour Preseason All-America - 2011 Medrano continues to show as a two-way player at 2B and on the mound. He projects best at 2B for the next level. He is a switch hitter with hitting grades really improving from the left side. Hands are quick and he makes consistent contact with power numbers showing best from the right side. At 2B, he is light on his feet, moving well laterally and displays range. He needs to be more aggressive in attacking and playing through ground balls with his body. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 76-78 mph with a solid breaking ball that displays downward tilt.

10/20/2010 - Arizona Junior Fall Classic - 2010 Nick is a heads-up, two-position guy who showed well at the Arizona Junior Fall Classic. He has good range in the infield and has a feel to his left and right. Aggressive to charge balls in front of him an his footwork is quick and efficient. Would like to see him play through the ball more with his glove. Had a nice weekend offensively going 3 for 7 with two walks. Aggressive with a good feel for the strike zone and his own hitting zone. Needs to improve strength in wrists and utilize lower half more to increase batspeed. Also needs to find a better launch position for his hands. On the mound, his delivery is clean and his arm works well. Needs to maintain arm speed on offspeed pitches, and needs to command his fastball more as well. Nick has the ability to make some special things happen. He is aggressive and heads-up on the bases and has a good feel around the bag on the double play. He hustles and loves to learn. He is going to make a program better.

05/23/2010 - National Tryout - Phoenix, AZ Medrano continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.45 runner. Arm strength also has improved as he topped out at 77 mph. Fastball shows a range of 74-77 mph with arm side run on a slight downhill plane. Breaking ball is best off speed pitch displaying 12/6 shape with tight spin and sharp break. He did swith hit but needs to concentrate on right handed swing where he has potential. He has time to continue to further improve.

07/07/2009 - Cape Cod Training 2009 - Week 1 Nicholas is a young, 2012 graduate that shows as a two-way player on the mound and at 2B with a small, thin frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature. Currently, he projects best at 2B for the next level. Foot speed is well below average and he must get on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness for the next level. Feet are active and aggressive as he is fundamental sound in the IF. He plays with a lot of energy and is very coachable, displaying slightly above average defensive abilities. Arm strength is average and he needs to get on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength, raising velocities. At the plate, Medrano has slightly above average abilities with near average power. He shows a solid feel for hitting as he maintains bat control through the swing. Swing path is level through a balanced approach. Power numbers will increase as he learns to stay back and transfer weight more efficiently through the swing. Overall body strength will also elevate play. On the mound, fastball was 66-70 mph with a solid breaking ball. He shows good tempo and rhythm on the mound with stock rising as more arm strength is developed. With 3 years to further develop, Nicholas has abilities with a lot of room to improve.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
