Chicago Scouts Association went to 2022 RHP Nicholas Kolze (Romeoville HS, IL) out of the bullpen. Kolze a wide-shouldered, 6-foot-2, 195-pound, sophomore went right after hitters with primarily a firm fastball that was up to 89 mph, working mostly 86-88 mph, especially early on. Kolze has one of the strongest arms in the class and will be one to watch closely in the next few years.

6/24/19

Kolze had one of the day’s most impressive outings on the mound. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound righty sat 83-85 mph, touching 86 mph, twice through Minnesota Blizzard’s order. His ability to mix in a power, hammer 12/6 breaking ball helped earn a number of swings and misses.
