3B/2B Nicklas Williams (Union Grove) is a muscled-up prospect who applies that strength directly into his right-handed swing. He repeats well and generates hard line-drive contact consistently. Williams' knack for hitting is obvious as he demonstrated both a natural feel for the zone, promoting good pitch selection, and he also barreled up a 3-2 breaking ball that he landed on the sweet spot for a hard line-out to center. His physicality doesn't affect his foot speed negatively, either, as he still ranges well on defense and plays the game with a bounce.
