Nelson has athletic ability to spare, and ranked first on at least one team's draft board. Nelson's best tool is his arm, even though he had Tommy John surgery in the fall. Smooth and easy at shortstop, Nelson has fluid infield actions, plenty of range and good baseball savvy. His short, compact swing, makes consistent contact and has solid bat speed. Scouts project him to hit for average power down the road. Plus-plus makeup.
