PG Grade: 9.5
Nicholas Padilla is a 2014 RHP/1B with a 6-2 195 lb. frame from Bronx, NY who attends Cardinal Spellman HS. Strong mature athletic build. Rock back delivery, 3/4's to high 3/4's arm slot, works downhill well, tends to land on a stiff front leg and fall off at release. Very good raw arm strength, upper 80's fastball that topped out at 91 mph, mostly straight but usually down in the zone with good angle. Throws a softer cutter/2-seamer that is functionally a change up. Big breaking 10/4 sweeping curveball flashes tight spin and some power. Has the ability to mix pitches and will improve with some delivery adjustments. Nice young arm.
