4.2.16:  Nielsen is an athletic switch hitter who should be able to stick at shortstop. On the mound, he has a drop and drive delivery, throwing from a three-quarters arm slot with normal effort. His fastball had late run and sat 86-89, touching 90 once with late run. At the plate, Nielsen has quick hands and a fast bat. He loads into a slight arm bar with a longer path to the ball and good extension through it. He has a good lower half with good balance throughout his swing from either side. He has gap power to all fields from both sides of the plate with the potential for more.

11/8/14:  Nielsen is a 6-foot-2, 185 pound, switch-hitting Shortstop. At the plate, from the left side, hits from a balance stance that is slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Slight rhythm, quick load back, with a classic left handed stroke. Stays behind the baseball and utilizes his backside.  From the right side, sets up in a more vertical stance with slightly bent knees. Smooth load back, line drive approach, good extension. Doesn't engage backside entirely. Had an exit velocity of 87 mph from the left side and 90 mph from the right side off of the tee. In the field, Nielsen had smooth actions, above-average hands, a quick release, plus range, and the ability to stay athletic with his size.  Showed quickness and accuracy on all throws, with the ability to utilize arm strength when needed.
