Nikolas Balog is a 2008 1B/P with a 6'3'', 205 lb. frame from Saratoga CA, who attends Archbishop Mitty HS. He passes the eye test with his long, broad, strong body and he still has room to fill out. Balog has some upside as a hitter and on the mound. His hands work well and his wrists are loose. He has a line drive swing plane and showed good power potential, with a pullside approach. Balog has good bat speed and at times can be physical with the bat. He ran the bases well too. The more reps he gets and the more he sees good pitching, the better he will get. Defensively his hands are an asset around the bag. He picked balls well and smoothly handled ground balls. His feet work, he threw accurately, and showed some arm strength. On the mound the ball comes out of his hand easily from a hi 3/4 slot. His delivery is smooth and his fastball is sneaky, topping at 82. Balog can start bats with his curveball and get to the bottom of the zone with it. He is interesting and D1 programs would do well to check back in on him in the summer of 2007.
