8/5/18 Nickoson had one of the most impressive days at the plate among all hitters recording three hits with two going for extra bases. Uses a balanced setup, hands start near shoulder height, initiates the swing with a small toe turn prior to the stride. Shows some bat speed on a level to slightly upward path. Nickoson has advanced mechanics behind the plate and quick transfer/release that resulted in a 1.93-1.97 pop time. Nickoson is an above average runner for his position while presently showing line drive gap power that should improve as he adds to his 6-foot, 170-pound frame.

5-foot-11, 175 pound athletic, sturdy framed catcher was one of the better performers at the event. He starts from a flexible, balanced stance displaying solid footwork and getting into a strong throwing position. Ball to hand transfer was smooth and quick. Showed a strong arm on throws down to second at 74 mph. Pop time was 1.98-2.09. Great intent behind actions. Continues to get better with the bat each time we see him as actions keep getting more fluid and athletic. Not only have actions improve he also appeared more physical with added bat speed since we saw him last. His newly found physicality translated to swing as the ball was jumping off his bat in BP. Nickson has gone from a contact bat to a run producer candidate.

A 5-foot-11, 165-pound prospect. Offensively, he is a right-handed bat that starts in a taller setup. Barrel moves back with fluidity during his leg lift timing mechanism. Stride creates balance.

Drove the gaps regularly in batting practice. Behind the plate, he starts in a mid crouch. Gets out of his stance cleanly, showing athletic actions. Transfer looks smooth and easy. Throws showed carry and accuracy. Solid catch and throw guy.

5-foot-11, 165-pound prospect. Behind the dish, he starts in slightly open stance with some height to his crouch. Shows quick footwork. Obvious quickness in his transfer. Short arm action through high ¾ slot. Pop times were impressive 1.94 to 2.04 with top velocity of 75 mph. At the plate he starts tall with his barrel vertical. Creates efficient energy through a well timed weight shift into contact. Barrel has solid whip and direction through the zone. Can use the whole field and was at his best when he worked up the middle.

Position Velocity:75
Pop Time: 1.94-2.04

5-foot-10, 150-pound athletic frame. A solid defender behind the plate. Catch and throw skills are there as he showed by registering pop times of 2.06-2.14. Will need to continue to work on transfer skills. Has above average arm strength on his throws to second base. At the plate he starts slightly closed before using a double tap to start his load. Hands stay simple during his stride forward before taking a short, compact path to the ball.
