01/26/2014 - College PREP - Jacksonville, FL Nick is a C/1B that hits from the left side. Behind the dish, he presents a low target, sits easy and takes good angles to block. He sticks pitches and is sure handed. He showed pops around 2.3 but will lower times when he implements a throwing program for arm strength. At first, he moves well laterally, gets around the ball and makes plays with an aggressive pace. Offensively, he barrels balls up and gets the barrel through the zone well. He showed a contact approach and stayed level with his path. Overall - Palmer projects at either spot at the next level with some hit ability from the left side.
