Niko Kaufman is a 2008 OF/P with a 5'11'', 155 lb. frame from San Diego, CA who attends Point Loma HS. Kaufman has a lean body with a wirey strong build. Defensively, Kaufman has good arm strength and the ball jumps out of his hand on his throws from the outfield. He makes a good approach to the baseball and makes consistent accurate throws. He has good instincts in the outfield and is a solid defensive player. At the plate, Kaufman starts with an open stance with flexed knees. He has a short path to the baseball and swings on a line drive path. He maintains good balance through his swing and is aggressive in the strike zone. Kaufman competes at the plate and will develop into a solid hitter. On the mound, Kaufman pitches from a high 3/4 arm slot with a quick arm action. His arm works and he stays smooth through his delivery. Kaufman gets closed off at balance point and pitches with some effort. He gets some cut action on his fastball occasionally and has fair spin on his curveball. Kaufman is a solid 2-way follow.
