Paul Nakazato is a 2011 MIF/P with a 5'10'', 155 lb. frame from Tucson, AZ who attends Catalina Foothills HS. Wiry athletic build. 2-way prospect. 7.26 runner, good infield arm strength, quick feet but needs work on balance/footwork. Very open to closed approach hitting, uses lower half well in swing, good hands to hit, shows some bat speed, hands short and quick to ball, line drive hitter. Also pitched, drop and drive delivery style, extended release, falls hard to 1B side, arm works well, mid 80's fastball, big breaking curveball, over the top release. Should keep improving.
