Has evolved into one of the top left-handed pitchers the state has to offer over the last couple of years. A former Future Gamer in 2019, Nelson took the ball in Game 2 of a AISA Playoff series and was dominant while tossing 7 IP, H, R, BB & 16 K’s. Pitched primarily at 86-88 mph in the earlier innings w/ command to the bottom-half of the zone. Changeup caused fits for right-handed hitters at 76-78 mph with fade and fairly high spin (2100 rpm). Stayed on the same plane out of the hand as the fastball before dropping off to the bottom part of the zone. Comfortable throwing it in any count. Mixed in a sharp 1/7 breaking ball (2300 rpm) w/ downward break to left-handed hitters mostly. Allowed a solo home run in the 1st, but proceeded to retire 16 of the next 17 hitters, 13 of which were strikeouts. Premium pitchability & always in control on the mound. Also 3-for-4 offensively with two doubles and a home run in Game 2.

A young ’22 grad that more than held his own against the older guys at the event. Showed 89 mph from the OF with a quick transfer. The throws stayed on line and he did a nice job keeping his momentum moving through his throws. At the plate, he, he showed a very simple approach with no wasted movement but created plenty of pop off the barrel from an even stance. Was able to hand pitches on both sides of the plate. Really gets the barrel through the hitting zone. The bat path shows slight tilt. Really like this ’22, also a nice LHP as well
