Nido's just as problematic behind the plate, though how much potential scouts think he has back there depends on when they saw him. Sometimes he looked better out there than others. From what I've seen, he has solid-average arm strength but very poor arm accuracy due to poor throwing mechanics and footwork. His agility, hands, blocking, and other receiver skills are all considered subpar by many scouts, so he's going to be a project at best. What really worries some is that he just doesn't appear to have the reflexes necessary to develop these tools. I'd take those reports with a grain of salt for the time being.

I'm doubtful right now that he'll end up at catcher, but if he can develop the raw power it might play at any position, and the fact that he could stay behind the plate makes him a prospect worth watching. Nido is a Florida State signee, so it may be difficult getting him to sign, but I haven't heard anything in particular with this regard.

So, it took a few years, but this guy looks to finally be turning into a prospect for us. Hitting .302/.344/.447 in St. Lucie with only a 13.1% strikeout rate and has thrown out nearly half of prospective base stealers behind the plate. He just turned 22 in April.

Could he be our version of Willson Contreras?
