07/07/2012 - Cape Cod Select Training & Competition - Session 1 Niko showed similar abilities as we had previously seen in Chicago, IL. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through well with his body, displaying clean hands. He needs to present hands more out front and improve foot speed to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power grades have improved slightly through a solid setup with rhythm. Hands work through a level swing path but needs to stay inside the baseball more to improve hitting grades. Mental makeup is a plus as he works hard and is a sponge of the game. He plays with high energy and works well with others.
