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.
Fastball: 92-95 MPH
Changeup: 78-81 MPH
Curveball: 78 MPH
Mike Nikorak’s Best Fit
Nikorak’s best fit is the Boston Red Sox who desperately need pitching. He would spend three or four years in the minors and could potentially be Boston’s future ace.
