Nick Rice is a 2007 LHP/1B with a 6'6'', 200 lb. frame from Kenosha WI, who attends Tremper HS. He has a long, lean frame with slender hips and shoulders. Rice throws from a simple turn and throw delivery that enables him to stay ball and use his height to throw downhill. His arm action is long and extended and pretty smooth from a 3/4's release point. Rice's fastball was 85-88 mph and was heavy when low in the zone and straight when up. Rice showed good arm speed on his changeup and will give it some cutting action on occasion. He didn't throw any curveballs in this off season session but we've seen a nice tight low 70's curveball from him in the past. Rice is a promising young left hander with very good projection. He is also a good student and has signed with Southern Illinois.

Nick Rice is a 2007 left hand pitcher from Tremper HS, residing in Kenosha, WI. Rice has a long, lanky build on his 6'6" 190 lb. frame that has plenty of room to continue to fill out. Rice was among a good crew of projectable bodies, arms, and stuff and was ranked #61 among PG National Top 85 pitchers. He has a loose and long arm action with quick, deceptive arm speed. Rice has a delivery that is a little unorthodox, opening his front side up very early, but he remained effective and showed feel of three pitches. He was able to pitch to all quadrants with his fastball, up, down, in and out. Put an emphasis on the phrase "was able to pitch" because he did so with his fastball, ranging his velocity from 82 up to 88, adding and subtracting. It might seem as though his delivery caused the inconsistent fastball velocity, but as you watch Rice, it is apparent that he knows what he is doing with the ball. His fastball also had good down angle through the zone. He is the type that can pitch above or below bats with his fastball because he does not repeatedly just pound the zone with the same stuff over and over. Rice can get a hitter guessing and do so based on his fastball only. His curveball was 72 mph with rolling action and some depth. It is a very good pitch, especially when thrown off his high fastball. Rice also showed a soft change-up that he was able to throw to both sides of the plate. It is an effective pitch to get hitters way out front and diving at the ball. Rice is going to throw harder as he develops more strength. As for now he is a D1 college prospect and has a chance to develop into a pro prospect during his college career.

Nick Rice is a long and lanky 6-6, 185 lb junior left handed pitcher from Wisconsin. He's very loose and obviously very projectable with that body. Rice has a tall delivery with a short stride and a long, whippy arm action. He stays tall but tends to open his front shoulder early and sling the ball a bit and lower his release point. Rice was 87-88 mph early with his fastball and settled in at 83-84 mph consistently. His fastball has some cutting action when he gets behind the ball and keeps it low in the strike zone. Rice's breaking ball is a 68-71 mph curveball that he gets on the side of frequently. He also threw a 78 mph change up, but was primarily a fastball pitcher this outing. Rice's cutting fastball might be a precursor to adding a slider in the future. Overall, Rice's skills are a bit on the raw side but a 16 year old 6-6 southpaw who throws in the upper 80's is a top level follow for every scout and coach. Rice is also a good student.
