Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Holds bat up near ear, slight waggle; minimal hand load, deep weight transfer, toe tap, long stride; above-average bat speed, leverage, moderate barrel control; fluid swing, loud contact; limited swing-and-miss
Power 50 Plus raw, can get to a good bit of it in game situations; swing produces lift and separation, line-drive and gap power presently, ability to drive the ball to all fields
Baserunning/Speed 45 Below-average straight line, 4.33 home-to-first; decent base-runner with good instincts; can go first to third, not a base-stealing threat
Glove 55 Above-average receiving skills; solid lateral agility and quickness behind the plate, advanced blocking technique; calls a good game, adapts to pitchers' strengths and weaknesses through starts
Arm 60 Above-average arm strength plays up; quick release, accurate; 1.9 average on four pops

Drafted in the 8th round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft from Orangewood Christian HS (Maitland, FL). This is Nido's fifth year in pro ball, and the standout raw power he was touted to have out of high school is slowly coming around. He makes hard contact in games, with a fluid swing that produces line drives that have loft to all fields. On the defensive side, Nido is a solid receiver with a plus arm and solid presentation skills. With an ongoing offensive breakout this year, he's now a two-way prospect with the upside of an above-average big-league starting catcher.
