DrB's 2017 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #50 Nick Hill
Nick Hill, 3B. DOB: 8/2/1994. B-R, T-R, 6'4", 190 lbs. Drafted in 2016 Round 26 from Eckard College.
2016 R: .263/.330/.343, 8 2B, 3 3B, 0 HR, 17 SB, 4.6 BB%, 24.2 K%, 9 HBP, 196 PA.
2016 SS: .231/.231/.308, 2B, SB, 0.0 BB%, 15.4 K%, 13 PA.
Nick Hill is another guy who I think was a savvy draft pick by the Giants. Has a lot of speed for a guy that big. Lots of room to fill out his frame. Drafted as an OF, but moved to 3B in his pro debut. Giants usually use late season promos to send prospects to their probable assignment for the following season so expect Nick Hill to stay behind in camp and show up in S-K's lineup on opening day of the NWL. Lots of room for growth in this prospect.
