Super 60 Spotlight: Nikolas Mazza

By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 7, Prep Baseball Report will host the 19th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 22 first-round picks and 25 second-rounders.

We started our our march toward the Super 60 earlier this year, by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school years and beyond.

Scouting Report


The quick, athletic arm that Mazza showcased early on has allowed him to see significant velocity jumps throughout his high school career, and he sat in the low 90s throughout the summer with even more likely this spring. Perhaps undersized at 5-foot-10, he has a more durable, compact build at an athletic 180-pounds, and gets the most out of his frame in delivering firm fastballs that jump through the zone. The developing secondary offerings have also ticked up as a slower breaking ball early on has now shifted to a firmer, 77-81 slider, and he demonstrates aptitude for spin in making adjustments. His ability to get swings-and-misses, in the future, will help elevate his stock.
