08/01/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 Niko is an athletic catcher that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 7.39 60 time. He utilizes his quick feet well in working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Throws are accurate with pop times showing a range of 2.35-2.42. He needs to build more arm strength / carry through a long toss program to continue to lower times. Receiving / blocking skills show as playable tools at the next level as he continues to improve. At the plate, Caladim shows a slightly open, athletic setup with balance. Hands works through a level swing path and he makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting / power grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the baseball and use his lower half more. Mental makeup is a plus as he is coachable and a hard worker. With 2 years to further develop, Niko has abilities with time and room to improve.
