    Nixon is described as the best pure hitter in the draft, a potential .290-.300 hitter with 25-30 home run power. He’s a well-rounded talent who also is his team’s best pitcher, and scouts just need to determine which outfield position he fits in. When not pitching, Nixon normally plays right field. He slugged seven home runs in his first 18 at-bats.
