Nick Nelsen is a 2014 RHP/ with a 6-3 164 lb. frame from Johnston, IA who attends Valley. Nelsenhas a lean build with room to fill out. Has frame to add good weight. Varies his arm slot, works mostly from a high 3/4 arm slot but will drop down to low. Good loose arm action with both. Shows arm side run from high 3/4 and from low slot. Good feel for slider when he drops low. Pitches to contact and keeps hitters off balance. The two arm slots and varying speeds make him deceptive. Got a lot of weak ground balls. Good student.
