12/08/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Accelerated Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Niko is an athletic and hard-working 2022 prospect that made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Hitting Weekend. At the plate, Niko starts in a crouched stance, and creates backside rotation with his lower half. He consistently barrels the ball and uses the middle part of the field. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and keep his head down at contact. Niko will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Niko is a 2022 SS prospect who has a high baseball IQ. He can pick it at second, showing range to both sides and the ability to be a dependable DP partner. He moves his feet well to gain ground on the ball and extend his range. His backhand is clean and smooth as he works through with momentum to make accurate throws. At the plate, he shows an aggressive approach, looking to drive the ball. He loads to a power position and uses a strong lower half to launch a balanced swing through the zone to barrel the ball and spray hit to all fields. Leveling out his swing path will lead to more line drives and base hits. Niko is an intriguing prospect we want to watch continue his development.
