Position: SS
Team: Baylor

Nick Loftin - Prospect Profile

MLB.com - May : " He has solid arm strength and should be able to stay at short at the next level. He offers impressive versatility -- he started games at five positions (short, second and third base, left and right field) for the U.S. collegiate national team last summer -- and would fit nicely as a utilityman if he doesn't provide enough offensive impact to be a regular."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - May 13th: "Some scouts have said he has just fringe-average power and noted that when he does impact the ball itís typically only to the pull side, but a full season of the performance he started the year with may have been enough to change minds. Loftinís speed is just average."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - May 13th: "Another rising prospect who at first isn't overwhelming in terms of tools, but a shortstop with contact, defense and instincts doesn't have to have loud tools to be an every-day player."

Ian Smith - Prospect 365 - Apr. 26th: "Loftin presents a quiet load at the plate that allows an effortless right-handed swing to tap into gap or better power. Shows plus bat control. Defensively, he offers the tools and instincts that could allow him to play anywhere in the infield, and possibly even centerfield in a pinch."

Athlon Sports - Mar. 10th: "Loftin has already shown he can play a little bit of everywhere. He did so for Team USA last summer, and his arm and athleticism work at pretty much any infield or outfield spot."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - Jan. 31st : "Loftin has solid hands and a big arm, but the athleticism to handle most positions on the diamond if necessary. With solid bat-to-ball skills, Loftin isnít just a good glove either, as heís hit above .300 in both seasons with Baylor and as a sophomore starting hitting for extra-bases more consistently."
