Nick Tanielu, Astros prospect currently with AAA Round Rock Express

Nick Tanielu was selected in the 14th round (406th overall) in the 2014 draft by the Astros from Washington State.  He had a very productive Collegiate career, .364/.433/.506/.939 in 82 games with the Cougars, and was named to the Pac-12 All-Conference team after the 2014 season.  His numbers were gaudy, but his lack of power from traditionally a power position and some defensive questions prevented him from being selected higher according to scouts and other sources.

This season he is batting .297, with 17 home runs, .514 SLG and .873 OPS. He plays third base, second base and first.

Nick and Sammy discuss:

  • His baseball background
  • How the Astros organization has changed in the last few years of player development
  • What Nick's daily routine is like
  • What Nick works on in his first few rounds of batting work
  • How Nick works on his mobility
