On the mound, Niko keeps his eyes on target as he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and shows a controlled landing. Niko has a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 73mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits from 59-61mph. Changeup sits from 60-67mph with arm side run as he throws with fastball arm speed. In the field, Niko shows efficient footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into a low position and fields the ball with soft hands. He makes a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them consistently on-line to his target. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a square stance and takes a square stride. He shows a smooth rhythm and hits from a strong front side.
