07/20/2014 - California Select Training & Competition Nikolas is an athletic, two-way player who plays 3B/RHP. Defensively, Nicolas has good body control, a playable glove, and he moves with some agility to the ball. He works around it well, follows through, and has a quick release with accuracy to his target. If Nikolas can get more pre pitch actions, play more low to high, and work on his backhand, defensive abilities can get better. On the mound, Nikolas is a strike thrower with a free arm action and on time separation. He keeps his eyes on target, works quickly, and finishes in a good fielding position. More lower 1/2 and drive towards his target will help mound effectiveness improve. Offensively, Nikolas is a switch hitter who projects best from the left side. He has a simple approach, a level swing, and good barrel accuracy. Staying short to the ball and getting more extension through the ball will spike hitting numbers.
