LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2015 Northeast Underclass Showcase  
Kai Nelson is a 2017 OF/IF, UT with a 5-10 160 lb. frame from New York, NY who attends Fieldston. Medium frame with quick-twitch athleticism throughout body, good physical projection remaining on frame. Ran very well, posting a 6.93 seconds 60 yard dash time. Hits from wide spread stance with high hand set, great shift into contact with excellent lower half drive, leveraged swing with intent, big time bat speed, swings very hard and will pull head off at times, consistently barreled the baseball up and hit it hard. Has present gap-to-gap power and will certainly grow into more HR power with added physical development. Impressive all around hitting potential. Showed athleticism in the OF, moving well to the ball and fielding cleanly, fluidity throughout defensive actions, shows very good arm strength with impressive carry on throws, topping at 84 MPH with more velocity and arm strength coming. Named to 2015 Northeast Underclass Showcase Top Prospect List. Very good student.
