Mike Nikorak’s Scouting Report

A year ago nobody knew about Nikorak, but he had scouts drooling after a great summer showcase. Nikorak has an effortless, fluid and consistent delivery with a 3/4 release. He is very good at using his height and length to his advantage. He has excellent control on all of his pitches and throws both a 4-seam and 2-seam fastball. His 2-seam has plenty of movement and will run in on righties. Nikorak’s most dominant pitch is his curveball and with some good coaching can make it a great put away pitch. He still has areas that need improvement, but he looks like the best high school pitcher in this year’s draft.
