The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Nelson was one of the clear middle infield standouts at the Midwest Future Games in August. Offensively, he has a balanced and easy left-handed swing, one that is quick and compact. Defensively, he has excellent hands, fields the ball with rhythm and has an extremely quick transfer. Although he plays a natural second base, he has the arm strength (82 mph across the infield) to play shortstop and third base.
6/19/13: Nelson may have established himself as one of the top middle infielder at the Top Prospect Games. At the plate, the solidly built 5-foot-8, 180-pound left handed hitter shows a balanced stance and advanced approach to hitting. Nelson has quick hands and creates fast bat speed through the zone with a short, compact swing that drives the ball gap to gap with some power potential.  In the field, Nelson displays a good approach to the ball with a clean exchange and a quick release while playing through the ball. His throws are all accurate, with a top velocity of 82-mph across the diamond. Nelson is a player who should garner plenty of attention over the next few years.

2/18/13: At the plate, the left handed hitting 5-foot-9, 180-pound Nelson showed power for a player of his size. He has a strong, active lower half with looseness in his swing and quick hand speed; consistently barreling up the ball and displaying pull side power (top exit velocity of 84-mph). In the field, Nelson showed fluid footwork to the ball with smooth fielding mechanics and short, quick arm action while delivering accurate throws across the diamond.
