LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2007 World Showcase  
Jimmy Nelson is a 2007 RHP with a 6'6'', 227 lb. frame from Niceville FL, who attends Niceville HS. He has a big and tall country strong type of build that could get really strong in the future. Nelson throws from a complicated, multi-piece delivery with a full arms over head takeaway and a high 3/4's release point. There are plenty of inconsistencies he'll have to iron out at the next level. His arm works very well through all of it. His best pitch was an 80 mph slider that had a sharp 2-plane break and was nasty at times and will be a major weapon for him in the future. Nelson had much better command of his slider than his other pitches and lots of confidence in the pitch. His fastball was 86-89 mph from a good downhill plane and it had excellent sink at times when he got it low in the strike zone. Nelson's change up also showed quality and he should consider throwing it more often. Nelson is a very good prospect now and when he gets his delivery under control and his strength grows into his frame, he could be something special. That slider will be unhittable when he's throwing it 85 mph. Nelson is a very good student who will be attending Alabama.
