Nicholas Jensen is a 2007 left hand pitcher from Appleton East HS, residing in Appleton, WI. He has a lanky body type with wide shoulders on his 6'2" 175 lb. frame. It is a body that looks to be capable of filling out very nicely in the future. He ranked #85 among PG National Top 85 pitchers and in the long run will be better than many of those ranked ahead of him simply because of their better present day stuff. Jensen pitches from an over the top slot and has an easy and pretty loose arm action. He has a short arm stroke on the back side and effectively hides the ball, creating some deception. Jensen has good arm speed and uses minimal effort in his delivery, which is slightly cross body, another dimension that adds some deception. His body remains in balance during the delivery and he showed good command and pitchability. Not a power guy, his fastball topped at 87 mph and sat in the mid-80s. Jensen did tilt the ball well to the bottom of the zone and had some late life on it. He IS going to gain velocity in the coming years, so radar gun addicts may miss on him. It was impressive to see him trust his stuff and compete on the inner half with his fastball against RH hitters. To complement his fastball, Jensen has a usable 71-72 mph curveball that he can start at a LH hitter's hip and move it away, or he can use the backdoor against RH hitters. Not only is his body projectable in a physical sense, Jensen is also a decent athlete, posting a 7.20 60 yard time. He is one to not forget about. It is likely he ends up in college and develops into an upper round talent in a few years. Do not forget that he is also from a cold weather state, so his arm should be pretty fresh.

Nicholas Jensen is a young looking 2007 left hander from Wisconsin. He’s already 6'1" with some breadth to his shoulders and has a ton of projection for future growth and strength potential. Jensen throws from a balanced delivery with a long, fairly straight arm stroke and a high ¾ release point. He finishes tall with a pretty stiff front leg, and gets very good downward plane to the plate. Jensen’s fastball was up to 82 mph, but he is one of a few pitchers we see every year who really aren’t throwing a true fastball. Because of his grip and the way he comes around the side of the ball on every pitch, Jensen’s fastball is really a cutter with very consistent break to it. He threw some 80 mph pitches that were basically nasty sliders, not fastballs. One has to think that with a different grip and hand position to get behind the ball, Jensen could be almost throwing in the mid-80’s right now. Not that a consistent 80 mph cutter isn’t a good pitch, it’s an excellent pitch for a sophomore. Not surprisingly, Jensen also threw a true slider in the 70-74 mph range that had late, sharp biting action. Jensen threw strikes with both pitches, and repeated his delivery well for a young pitcher. He also took his turn swinging at the plate. He uses a top tap trigger from an upright stance. He has solid bat speed, but lets his weight drift forward and gets himself off balance causing him to reach for some pitches. He does show strength in his swing and is projectable at the plate. Jensen has a very good upside as a pitching prospect and should be followed very closely. Don't be surprised if he becomes one of the best lefties in the 07 class. Nick is a very good student.
