01/17/2020 - Baseball Factory's Spring Training Tournament at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Niko is an athletic and strong 2-way prospect. In the OF, Niko reads the ball off the bat and puts himself in a good position to field the ball. He has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Niko starts in an open stance, he loads his hands back, and has fluid rhythm in his load. He rotates his backside and looks to drive the ball to the pull side. On the bump, Niko throws strikes with his fastball and uses his breaking ball ahead in counts. He gathers over the rubber and has a simple delivery. He has tremendous upside and we hope to see his progress in the future.
