Nick Silva is a 2005 middle infielder from Miami, Florida, with a strong and compact 5'8", 175 lb. frame. Silva has very good arm strength (86 mph) from the infield with quick actions and good footwork defensively. He is a right handed hitter with a compact swing and is very short to the ball. He has very good bat speed, and makes solid line drive contact with good balance in his swing. Silva has good hands at the plate, and showed the ability to use all fields. He is a solid all around player who has good baseball actions, and he can hit. He runs well and can really play the game.

Nick Silva is a 5'9", 170 lb. middle infielder from Miami, Florida, with a solid, present strong type of body. He impressed us with his overall game. Defensively, Silva has middle infield actions with good hands, feet and balance. His release is a bit slow, but Silva has very good arm strength from shortstop, hitting 85 mph during workouts and showing the same type of gun during games. At the plate, Silva hits from a spread stance with a leg lift trigger. He has good strength in his hands and a short line drive swing. Silva doesn’t project a lot of power with his approach and swing plane, but he had three hits in the two showcase games, including a ringing double that was 91 mph off the bat. Silva’s solid body and mature baseball skills should mean that he can contribute right away at a good college program. Nick runs well and shows excellent instincts.
